Tucker Carlson Not Sorry for Calling Britney Spears & Paris Hilton "Whores," Dissing Canadian Women

March 11, 2019

Between 2006 and 2011, FOX News host Tucker Carlson was a weekly guest on shock jock Bubba the Love Sponge's radio show, where he defended convicted pedophile Warren Jeffs and called Britney Spears and Paris Hilton "the biggest white whores in America." He also said that there are no Canadian women he'd "pay to sleep with." After Media Matters published a YouTube compilation of Carlson's comments on Sunday, he released a statement which read, "Media Matters caught me saying something naughty on a radio show more than a decade ago. Rather than express the usual ritual contrition, how about this: I’m on television every weeknight live for an hour. If you want to know what I think, you can watch. Anyone who disagrees with my views is welcome to come on and explain why.” Incidentally, #FireTuckerCarlson was trending on Twitter by late Monday morning.
