Babbel pulls ads from ‘repugnant’ show; Fox News defends controversial host

Controversial Fox News Channel host Tucker Carlson has attracted some more public opprobrium.

After shedding advertisers following previous calls for boycotts, Babbel has apologized for inadvertently airing a spot during his show.

“If you saw our ad on Tucker Carlson’s show, you’re right to be upset,” the company’s U.S. Twitter account posted. “We are too.”

The company went on to say it was “deeply sorry” for its ad being placed during the “repugnant” show.

Fox News has responded, vowing not to let its hosts be “censored” by such statements.

“The millions of unduplicated viewers watching Tucker Carlson Tonight are extremely valuable to our advertisers,” a spokesperson said. “Our audience is not only deeply loyal to the brand, but to our top tier partners as well, of which Babbel is not one.”
