Tucker Carlson Sparks Controversy With Past Comments About Women, Cult Leader Warren Jeffs And Underage G...

Media Matters said it unearthed clips of Tucker Carlson calling into the Bubba the Love Sponge radio show from 2006 to 2011

In a statement, Carlson refused to apologize for his "Bubba The Love Sponge" comments, saying, "Media Matters caught me saying something naughty on a radio show more than a decade ago".

While Outback says it cut ties in January, the decision had not been previously reported, and the chain is on Media Matters' list of Carlson's advertisers, which is being widely shared by critics of the Fox News host.

Laura Keiter, a communications director for Media Matters, said in a statement to TheWrap: "Anyone remotely familiar with Tucker Carlson won't be surprised by the misogyny".

Carlson, who defended his track record in a tweet, said he wouldn't give the "usual ritual contrition" after his previous comments about women surfaced. Instead, he invited anyone who disagrees with his views as expressed these days on TV to come challenge him on Tucker Carlson Tonight.

"If you're talking to a feminist", he said, "and she's given you, 'Well, men really need to be more sensitive, ' no, actually, men don't need to be more sensitive". You debate politics with a woman and just go-just full blown out there, especially feminism.

Both Bubba the Love Sponge and his co-host immediately pushed back.

"You just need to be quiet and kind of do what you're told", he added.

Carlson also had choice words for women, among them Martha Stewart's daughter, who he agreed with the hosts was "c*nty". The progressive press watchdog Media Matters for America published some of the recordings of Carlson on Sunday.

"What do you mean an accessory?"

"It's disgusting! I think the religion is ridiculous, I think it's a cult, I think it's totally immoral". In 2007, he said Oprah Winfrey "hate [s] the penis" and is generally "anti-man".

-May 9, 2006: Carlson calls for the end of rape shield laws, saying that under this legislation rape victims are "hiding behind anonymity, while the person I accused, whether he's guilty or not, has his life destroyed". He's not in prison for polygamy, he's in prison for child rape.

Carlson quickly responded to the growing online outrage - and he did not capitulate.

"Look, just to make it absolutely clear".
