Tucker Carlson Loses Sheex Advertiser Over Comments About Statutory Rape, Women

Sheex, a female-founded bedding and sleepwear company, is pulling advertising from Tucker Carlson’s Fox News primetime show after unearthed audio showed the primetime star defending statutory rape and making disparaging comments about women and minorities. “Due to the inappropriate statements of Tucker Carlson that have recently come to light, SHEEX has made the decision to cease advertising,” the bedding company said in a statement to The Daily Beast. The company joins nearly 30 others that had previously pulled their ads from Tucker Carlson Tonight in the wake of these comments and the overtly anti-immigrant comments he made in December. Carlson has so far refused to apologize for any of his comments, saying he “will never bow to the mob.”
