Disney, T-Mobile Pull Advertising From Tucker Carlson’s Fox News Show After ‘Racist Segment’




Disney and T-Mobile have pulled their advertising from Tucker Carlson’s Fox News prime-time show in response to his recent comments about the Black Lives Matter movement and the killing of George Floyd.

As first reported by Judd Legum’s Popular Information, Disney has instructed its third-party ad buyer to stop placing ads on “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” telling Legum that it was not previously aware its ads were running during the show.



On Tuesday evening, T-Mobile said it had not run ads on Carlson’s show since early May and has canceled future ad placements.

“We will continue to support those who stand against racial injustice,” the company tweeted.




In 2018, at least 26 advertisers — including Red Lobster, Lexus, Pfizer, IHOP, SmileDirectClub and Ancestry — dropped their ads from his show after Carlson said immigrants made America “poorer” and “dirtier.”
