A video has gone viral on social media and shows an angered man confronted Fox News host Tucker Carlson in a hunting and fishing equipment store, condemning Tucker as “the worst human known to man.”
The angered man, Dan Bailey, posted the video to his Instagram revealing the confrontation that occurred late last week.
“You are the worst person known to man. I want to tell you that,” Bailey said to Carlson. “What you have done to this country, to everyone else in this world. I don’t care if your daughter is here. What you have done to everyone in this world.”
Carlson, who was laughing at the enraged liberal, said, “Settle down, son.”
Bailey responded, “‘Son?’ Do not call me son!”
Carlson then walked away from the man, who continued to pursue him and harass the conservative host.
“It’s not everyday you get to inform someone they are the worst man in the world and actually mean it! What an a**hole! He has killed more people with misinformation about the vaccine, he supported racism and is a fascist and does more to rip this nation apart than anyone else,” Bailey said in the video caption, putting in the hashtag “#f***tuckercarlson.”
What did the store owner say?
The store that housed the confrontation, ironically called Dan Bailey’s Outdoor Co., put out a statement that put distance from the store to the customer who confronted Tucker Carlson.
“On July 23rd, a popular TV personality, Tucker Carlson, was confronted while here at Dan Bailey’s Outdoor Company,” the statement started. “Coincidentally, the person who targeted Mr. Carlson was a local citizen named Dan Bailey. This person does not have any affiliation with our store, other than sharing the same name as our late founder, who died in 1982.”
“To be certain, we treat every customer respectfully and equally. Our staff was cordial and professional to Mr. Carlson, as we are with every customer,” the comment added.
“Attacking Tucker Carlson while he’s in a store with his family is completely inexcusable — no public person should be accosted no matter what their political beliefs are because of someone’s intolerance of their point of view,” a Fox News spokesman said.
