NFL Hall of Famer Brett Favre called for a boycott of Fox News on Monday following the network’s abrupt split with Tucker Carlson.
The former Green Bay Packers quarterback released a video mashup of ex-Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly slamming the network and epic scenes of Tucker dropping truth bombs.
“I’m with Tucker. Time to boycott Fox until they come to their senses and let the man speak,” Favre wrote on Twitter, referring to reports that Fox may have paid off the remainder of Carlson’s contract in an effort to keep him sidelined past 2024.

The video clip shows Kelly on her podcast from last week excoriating Fox News for trying to silence Tucker ahead of the 2024 presidential election.
“That’s what’s happening here; keep him silent, on the sidelines for as long as possible, unable to use his voice on any of these things. On Fox, on politics, on anything,” she said.
The video goes on to highlight Tucker discussing topics normally anathema to the corporate news such as the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan, the truth behind the Ukraine war, the origins of COVID-19, transgender insanity, and so much more.
In the days since firing Tucker, Fox News lost HALF of its primetime audience.
This comes amid reports that Carlson is planning to “go to war” with Fox News as a major news competitor, and has even had talks with Twitter CEO Elon Musk about a possible alliance.
