Tucker Carlson: Bubba the Love Sponge misogynistic comments spark call for boycott

Tucker Carlson Issa Rae

The Fox News host responded Sunday night with a statement written on Notes App informing the public that he would not be apologizing for the comments he made on Bubba the Love Sponge's show.

He did not "express the usual ritual contrition" but publicised his show and asked his opponents to come on as guests. "Anyone who disagrees with my views is welcome to come on and explain why", Carlson wrote in a statement posted to Twitter. "I mean, let's be honest about it".

He described Hillary Clinton as "anti-penis" and said "you look at Hillary and you know in your heart that if she could castrate you, she would". This is the image Carlson has spent more than a decade building. He is accused of facilitating the marriage between a 16 year old girl and a 27 year old man.

On the tapes, the TV host said that Warren Jeffs, who is now serving a life sentence after being convicted of felony child sexual assault for aiding an underage marriage, "is in prison because he's weird and unpopular and he has a different lifestyle that other people find creepy". "It's much more planned out and plotted", said the co-host, who wasn't identified in the transcripts.

TUCKER CARLSON: Well, actually, he's not in prison for that.

"Carlson said underage marriage is not the same thing exactly as pulling a child from a bus stop and sexually assaulting that child".

While on the show, Vincent was one of the highest paid people on TV, reportedly getting paid $200,000 per episode. He appeared in numerous films and television shows, including the 1978 Burt Reynolds film " Hooper ".

He said that "what gets women going is arguing with them" about politics, especially feminism. Indeed, leftists aren't just unoffended by Carlson's comments - they're excited.

In the same week that Fox News is holding a big event for advertisers to promote its news brand, the network is battling multiple controversies about offensive remarks made by its right-wing hosts.

-Oct. 25, 2009: When Bubba the Love Sponge imagines underage girls at Carlson's 14-year-old daughter's boarding school getting sexually involved with one another, the Fox News pundit says, "If it weren't my daughter I would love that scenario".

On that same appearance, he called Alexis Stewart, a television and radio host and daughter of Martha Stewart, "cunty".

"What do you mean an accessory?" "But he's disgusted by you today. I don't get that".

"We certainly want to make sure [the new audio tapes] are released when they can be most helpful to the media buying decision makers", the Media Matters spokesperson said in an email. He also said women are "extremely primitive" people who enjoy being told to "be quiet and kind of do what you're told".
