Fox News host Tucker Carlson is losing advertisers after a highly controversial statement on his show last Thursday.

While talking about immigration at his show Tucker Carlson Tonight, he explained that immigrants are making the United States “dirtier.”

“We have a moral obligation to admit the world’s poor, they tell us, even if it makes our own country poorer and dirtier and more divided,” he said.

He then continues to explain that “The left says we have a moral obligation to admit the world’s poor.”

“That’s what we said. It’s true… But precisely because it is so obviously true, saying it out loud is a threat.”

After the show last Thursday, Carlson’s statements stirred reactions on social media and a big backlash with several brands now announcing that they no longer will support his show.

At least 14 advertisers have decided that they no longer want to advertise on Tucker Carlson Tonight, and the number of companies dropping of the show is expected to grow.
