Fox News Urged to Fire Tucker Carlson for Defending Kenosha Shooter Kyle Rittenhouse

ox News host Tucker Carlson has been accused of inciting violence after he said that a teenager charged with homicide for shooting two protesters, had “decided to maintain order when no one else would.”

Calls were growing for Carlson to be fired following his monologue about the violence in Kenosha, Wisconsin, in which he appeared to say that 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse’s actions were understandable after days of chaos sparked by the police shooting of Jacob Blake.

In a segment on Wednesday in which he introduced graphic footage from the riots, including images of a protester bleeding in the street after being shot in the head, the Fox anchor said that Kenosha “devolved into anarchy because the authorities in charge of the city abandoned it.”
