9 Times Bill O’Reilly’s Replacement, Tucker Carlson, Showed Off His Sexist Cred

As of Wednesday, Bill O’Reilly is officially out at Fox News, a turn of events that has some rejoicing. Even though O’Reilly has been ousted only after it came out that he and Fox had settled at least 5 sexual harassment suits over the past 15 years ― and those claims began to hurt ad dollars ― his termination still feels like a win in the ongoing battle against sexist men with huge media platforms. 

And yet Fox has announced that O’Reilly’s slot will be filled by anchor and commentator Tucker Carlson. While Carlson certainly doesn’t have any highly publicized sexual harassment allegations looming over him (a marked improvement!), he has a well-recorded history of dismissing sexual harassment and women in general. 

Let’s take a stroll down memory lane, shall we? 

1. He complained about Ashley Graham’s “political” Sports Illustrated cover. 

“Does it really need to be political?” Carlson asked, after the Sports Illustrated made history with its 2016 swimsuit issue by featuring plus-size model Ashley Graham on its cover, prompting praise for celebrating women of all sizes.

“Keep it out of my swimsuit issue,” Carlson says via voice-over in the clip below. 

 

2. He refused to apologize when a writer at his website, The Daily Caller, referred to the NYC Mayor’s spokesperson as a “self-righteous bitch” with a “labia face.”

In 2015, an email obtained by Buzzfeed revealed that Carlson’s brother Buckley Carlson, a writer for his news site The Daily Caller, referred to called New York Mayor De Blasio’s spokesperson Amy Spitalnick as a “self-righteous bitch.” The email, which had been sent to Tucker, also speculated as to whether Spitalnick had ever been given a “pearl necklace,” accused her of having “extreme dick-fright,” and referred to her as “LabiaFace.” Oh, and it was sent to Spitalnick herself by mistake.  

When the email came to light, Carlson declined to apologize on his brother’s behalf and quipped that the email had been meant “in the nicest way.”

3. He claimed that Democrats “made up” the concept of sexual harassment. 

Yup. In 2006, during a segment of his old MSNBC show in which Democratic strategist Steve McMahon said that the Dems taking control of Congress would mean an era of “a lot more fun,” Carlson responded

A lot more fun? This is a group that made up the concept of sexual harassment. ‘You look great today.’ Boom, I‘m charging you with a crime.  Do you know what I mean? It‘s not a group I associate with fun. You want a sex scandal, the Republican party, baby, that‘s where you go.

4. He also showed that he actually doesn’t understand the concept of sexual harassment at all. 

According to MediaMatters, on an episode of “Hannity” in February 2010, Carlson defended an ESPN analyst who had been suspended for making sexist comments about a woman’s clothes on air.

Because the sexist comments were made publicly, Carlson explained that the analyst had done done nothing wrong because: “Sexual harassment by definition takes place in private.”

5. He blamed women for sexism in politics. 

On a 2007 episode of his MSNBC show “Tucker,” Carlson questioned the idea that woman have it harder in politics, citing the fact that “most voters are women.”

He asked: “If women were so anxious to have women in Congress, and there were so many great female candidates running, then why wouldn’t Congress be 52 percent female?”

Welcome to internalized misogyny and structural sexism, Tucker. 

6. He told political writer Lauren Duca to “stick to the thigh-high boots.”

After her Teen Vogue article on Donald Trump and gaslighting went viral in December 2016, Carlson invited writer Lauren Duca on his show. He then proceeded to try and devalue her opinions and political writing because she writes for Teen Vogue, and has written non-political pieces in the past.

“You should stick to the thigh-high boots,” he said. “You are better at that.” 

7. He defended President Donald Trump’s “Grab ‘em by the pussy” comments.

When audio of President Trump bragging about sexually assaulting women leaked in October 2016, Carlson claimed that the outrage over the comment was exaggerated.

“Nobody is actually shocked by this and everyone is pretending to be,” he said.

8. He described Hillary Clinton as “castrating.” 

Because the idea of a female president is apparently the most terrifying thing ever, Carlson dedicated a segment of his MSNBC show in 2007 to talk about how scary Hillary Clinton is.

“There’s just something about her that feels castrating, overbearing, and scary,” he said

9. He said the Day Without A Woman boycott was an “attack on white men.” 

After “A Day Without A Woman” took place on International Women’s Day this year, Carlson declared in a segment that because the day was designed to avoid shopping anywhere but women and POC-owned businesses, it was an act of “hostility” and “obviously an attack on white men.”

Selena Gomez Deletes Controversial Mosque Photo That Showed Her Ankle

Selena Gomez spent at least part of New Year’s Day dealing with a controversy that sprung up in the wake of a photo she posted to Instagram. The offending picture showed Gomez flashing her ankle inside the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi. It has since been deleted by the pop star.

According to TMZ, mosque leaders found the pose “disrespectful.” Per the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque visitor website, “modest, conservative, loose fitting clothing” is required for guests, and women are instructed to wear skirts that are “ankle length.”

Gomez visited Abu Dhabi with, among others, Kendall Jenner. A photo of Gomez and her friends at the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque still remains up on her Instagram account.

R. Kelly Showed Up At Chance The Rapper’s Lollapalooza Set

Lollapalooza’s final night was Chance the Rapper’s for the taking.

He had moved from last year’s midday set on a small stage to the festival’s latest Sunday night slot on the Perry Stage, which was used mostly for EDM acts. Though he was up against Kings of Leon, Skrillex and Darkside, Chance tweeted that Lolla organizers expected 60,000 fans to see his set. The final numbers have yet to come in, but those who braved the massive mud pit were greeted by a huge surprise: R. Kelly.

Chance introduced the controversial star halfway through his performance and described Kelly as “the Pied Piper of R&B.” Then Kelly launched into a three-song run, playing “The World’s Greatest,” “Bump N’ Grind” and “Ignition (Remix).”

Kelly’s appearance was part of Chance’s clear love letter to Chicago, his and Kelly’s hometown. He also brought out local rapper Vic Mensa, who performed at Lollapalooza on Saturday, did the juke slide and some footwork during the 90-minute set. “This is my city,” Chance told the crowd.

Frequent shout-outs to his friends, family and even the Chicago Reader reminded fans that this set was a huge moment for Chance, a homecoming after a monstrous year since his 2013 mixtape “Acid Rap” made nearly every outlet’s best-of list.

“I see you turning up this whole time,” Chance said before playing his last song of the night, “Chain Smoker.” He called out fans watching at home on the livestream. “They know this is our city.” After the show he tweeted, “Thank you.”


The crowd went bananas for Kelly’s short performance, but some fans questioned Chance’s decision to include him in the show. Just last week Fashion Meets Music Festival in Ohio dropped Kelly from its lineup after festival promoters criticized the event for booking him due to his past allegations of sexual assault and child pornography charges.

Kelly and the organizers reached a “mutual decision” for him to back out, and festival communications director Melissa Dickson told Columbus Alive, “The festival has taken a lot of heat, and we really just wanted to listen to Columbus and really take a stance and move forward.”

At the time, Kelly’s rep said the singer “looks forward to seeing [fans] in the near future during one of his upcoming tours.” That came sooner than expected at this year’s Lollapalooza.

Chance also played the hits that earned him the coveted time slot, “Everybody’s Something, “Smoke Again,” “Cocoa Butter Kisses” and his newly released cover of the “Arthur” theme song, “Wonderful Everyday.” (Here’s a full setlist.)
