Fox News host Tucker Carlson has an unlikely ally after a mob called Smash Racism descended on his Washington D.C. home.
Liberal actress and activist Alyssa Milano called out the mob on Twitter. She stated that it was “not okay,” no matter what political party you support.
“I don’t care what your political ideology is…this is not ok. Not. Ok."
She linked to a CNN article about how the police were called to Carlson's home after a mob showed up outside. They chanted threats against The Daily Caller co-founder and his family.
His wife Susie was alone at home at the time. Carlson was at the Fox News studio when the mob showed up.
Smash Racism DC posted video footage online of the group loudly shouting “racist scumbag, leave town!” and “Tucker Carlson, we will fight! We know where you sleep at night!”
“No borders! No walls! No USA at all!” they added in the clip posted on Twitter, along with a picture showing the family’s home address.
“Tucker Carlson, you cannot hide from the people you hurt with your rhetoric, your lies, and your hate,” the group tweeted, adding the hashtag, “#KnockKnockTucker.” The account connected to the group has been suspended.
Carlson told The Washington Post that the mob grew increasingly more violent.
“Someone started throwing himself against the front door and actually cracked the front door. It wasn’t a protest. It was a threat.”
“They weren’t protesting anything specific that I had said,” he added. “They weren’t asking me to change anything. They weren’t protesting a policy or advocating for legislation … They were threatening me and my family and telling me to leave my own neighborhood in the city that I grew up in.”
The police are investigating it as a “suspected hate crime.”
Milano is a surprising person to come to Carlson's defense. She's been vocally opposed to most Conservatives and Fox News in the past.
