NFL legend Brett Favre called for a boycott of Fox News on Monday, following the network’s decision to cut ties with host and Daily Caller co-founder Tucker Carlson.
“I’m with Tucker. Time to boycott Fox until they come to their senses and let the man speak,” Favre wrote to his Twitter followers on Monday morning. The statement was joined by a montage video featuring Sirius XM host Megyn Kelly decrying Fox’s decision to cut Carlson from his show, followed by clips of Carlson from his iconic primetime show.
In the clip featuring Kelly, she suggested that the reason Carlson and Fox have been unable to come to terms on a deal is because the network wants to silence him. “He needs to be silenced while Fox tries to rebuild that disappearing audience,” Kelly stated.

She further argued that Fox is banking on their audience returning to watch political debates in August, or the potential announcement from Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis that he’s running for president. The rest of the video is a supercut of some of Carlson’s most influential statements, most of which could be argued as going against the wants and needs of the global elites who influence corporate media outlets.
The video concludes with the words, “Show Tucker you stand with him. Stand with Tucker. Boycott Fox News!” (RELATED: Is Tucker Carlson Trolling Or Is He Flirting With A Run At The White House?)
Fox News abruptly ended Carlson’s show “Tucker Carlson Tonight” for still-unknown reasons in late April, replacing him with a mishmash of the network’s less successful anchors.
