I didn’t assault gay man, He called my daughter a ‘whore’

Conservative personality and Fox News host Tucker Carlson has revealed the truth about his assault of a gay man at a County Club.

Tucker Carlson revealed details of the incident in a Tweet on Sunday evening. Here’s the full statement;

 

“On October 13, I had dinner with two of my children and some family friends at the Farmington Country Club in Charlottesville, Virginia.Toward the end of the meal, my 19-year-old daughter went to the bathroom with a friend. On their way back through the bar, a middle-aged man stopped my daughter and asked if she was sitting with Tucker Carlson. My daughter had never seen the man before. She answered: “That’s my dad,” and pointed to me. The man responded, “Are you Tucker’s whore?” He then called her a “fucking cunt.”

My daughter returned to the table in tears. She soon left the table and the club. My son, who is also a student, went into the bar to confront the man, I followed. My son asked the man if he’d called his sister a “whore” and a “cunt.” The man admitted he had, and again become profane. My son threw a glass of red wine in the man’s face and told him to leave the bar, which he soon did.

Immediately after the incident, i described these events to the management of the Farmington Country Club. The club spent more than three weeks investigating the incident. Last week, they revoked the man’s membership and threw him out of the club.

I love my children. It took enormous self-control not to beat the man with a chair, which is what i wanted to do. I think any father can understand the overwhelming rage and shock that i felt seeing my teenage daughter attacked by a stranger. But i restrained myself.

I did not assault this man, and neither did my son. That is a lie. Nor did i know the man was gay or Latino, not that it would have mattered. What happened on October 13 has nothing to do with identity politics. It was a grotesque violation of decency. I’ve never seen anything like it in my life.”
