Tucker Carlson Insists ‘I Like Immigrants’ But Indeed.com Will No Longer Advertise on ‘Tucker Carlson Tonight’

Tucker Carlson, conservative host of Fox News’ Tucker Carlson Tonight, is feeling the backlash as advertisers pull from his show in the wake of his claim that migrants makes our country “dirtier.”

During a segment in which he argued that allowing unskilled immigrants into the U.S. is bad for the economy, Carlson said “[…]our leaders demand that you shut up and accept it.

But it doesn’t look like it was enough. On Monday, the job search program Indeed announced it was not advertising with Carlson.

It didn’t stop Twitter’s calls for advertisers to cease their partnerships with Carlson either.
