Tucker Carlson addresses ex-staffer’s racist posts, goes on vacation



In a brief set of prepared comments, Tucker Carlson (finally) addressed the revelation that his now-former top writer, Blake Neff, was secretly posting racist and sexist material on an online forum. "On Friday, many of those posts became public," Carlson said. "Blake was horrified by the story and he was ashamed. Friday afternoon he resigned from his job."
Carlson said the comments Neff wrote under a pseudonym on the online forum were "wrong" and that he does not "endorse those words." Carlson continued, "It is wrong to attack people for qualities they cannot control. In this country, we judge people for what they do, not for how they were born. We often say that because we mean it." Carlson added that Neff "fell short of that standard and he has paid a very high price for it." #TuckerCarlson #CNN #News

  1. This is crazy. We all say things for funny jokes but it should never be held against us. I was fired because I used the N word and the C word in a training class even the teacher asked me to pretend at being an angry customer. That is how angry customers talk, not me. I only use the N word when I’m goofing around because it funny at times. It’s a funny word, not an angry word. I don’t mean nothing by it. And the C word isn’t even that bad. My dad calls me that all the time.
