Red Lobster Faces Boycott, Mockery After Pulling Ads From Tucker Carlson
James Barrett, Daily Wire
Amid yet another advertiser boycott pushed by left-wing groups against a Fox News host, Tucker Carlson has seen several companies pull their ads from "Tucker Carlson Tonight" after he described the unregulated influx of low-skilled immigrants as making America "poorer and dirtier."
Speaking of unregulated immigration of those without a college education into the country, Carlson said, "Nobody even tries to defend it. Instead, our leaders demand that you shut up and accept it. We have a moral obligation to admit the world’s poor, they tell us, even if it makes our own country poor and dirtier and more divided."
Under pressure from activists, some of Carlson's advertisers have bailed, including Pacific Life, Indeed, Norwegian Cruise Lines, Lexus/Toyota, Mint Mobile, Samsung, SodaStream, SanDisk, and Nautilus Inc. (parent company of Bowflex).
Among the advertisers that have agreed to pull their ads from Carlson's show is Red Lobster. Asked for comment on the Carlson boycott by "Suez" earlier this week, Red Lobster replied, "Red Lobster is [sic] will no longer be advertising during this show and will continue to monitor ad placements carefully. We appreciate your feedback."
