Major Change Noticed on Tucker Carlson’s Twitter Profile After Fox News Departure

Published on

Tucker Carlson, a former Fox News host, updated his Twitter bio to reflect a change in employment on Monday, but he did not comment or otherwise elucidate on his surprising departure from the network.

Monday morning, cable’s highest-rated anchor was abruptly let go in what the network claimed was a mutual decision.

“Fox News Media and Tucker Carlson have agreed to part ways,” Fox News said in a statement. “We thank him for his service to the network as a host and prior to that as a contributor.”

Numerous reports subsequently revealed that Carlson’s dismissal was instructed by the company’s highest-ranking executives.

According to the Los Angeles Times, Fox Corp. chairman Rupert Murdoch ordered the termination in part because he disapproved of Carlson’s coverage of the Capitol incursion on January 6, 2021.

According to Vanity Fair, the decision to cancel “Tucker Carlson Tonight” was made by Fox Corp. executive chairman Lachlan Murdoch, the son of Rupert Murdoch, and Fox News CEO Suzanne Scott.

According to a source close to Carlson, the former presenter believes he was fired because the Murdoch family intends to sell the company.

According to each report, a lawsuit filed against Fox News by Abby Grossberg, an employee on Tucker Carlson’s program, played a role in the abrupt firing of the presenter.

But as of Tuesday morning, nothing has been validated, and Carlson has made no public comments about it.

The host did, however, delete his entire Twitter bio on Monday afternoon to reflect his departure from Fox News, where he had been a contributor since 2009.

His previous bio stated facetiously, “Emmy-award-winning broadcast journalist, graduate of Harvard College & Yale Law School. Frequent visitor to the Aspen Inst. Fully vaccinated. She/Hers.”

The bio also contained a link that directed readers to his personal website.

As of Tuesday, the Twitter bio was blank, minus the website link.

One detail that does stand out is that he gained at least 100,000 followers in the hours immediately following his termination.
