Lil Nas X Puts Fox News’ Tucker Carlson On Blast For Accusing Him Of Inciting Riots: This Man Just Lied!
Rapper Lil Nas X took to Twitter Friday (June 5) to call out Fox News host Tucker Carlson who has accused him–among other celebrities–of inciting riots as a result of his request for people to donate to bail groups!
Lil Nas X retweeted a fan’s post that showed a clip of Tucker Carlson on his show Tucker Carlson Tonight reporting about companies like Pepsi and Air B&B along with celebrities who were allegedly supporting rioting and looting through their donations to groups like the Minnesota Freedom Fund and NAACP Legal Defense Fund. He goes on to specifically insinuate Lil Nas X’s supposed support of riots.
Rapper Lil Nas X urged his 4.7 million Twitter followers to donate to bail groups in Chicago, New York, and Philadelphia, and elsewhere. Imagine if he had used those followers instead to help small businesses destroyed by the rioting he helped incite.
