Things went awry during a segment on Tucker Carlson’s nightly Fox News show Monday evening when a woman protesting outside the home of Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito suddenly held up her middle finger and flipped off viewers.
Carlson told viewers he was about to broadcast “live pictures” of a protest outside the home of Supreme Court Associate Justice Samuel Alito, author of a leaked draft opinion that, if issued, would overturn Roe v. Wade. Carlson noted that this was “what it looks like when you write an opinion the mob doesn’t like.”
Rather than a seething mob, however, the live footage featured a woman speaking into a megaphone with some people standing behind her.
At one point, the woman raised a middle finger.
As soon as Carlson saw the finger, he exclaimed, “Ah! Let’s turn that off, too much.”

Offended by a flying birdie, Tucker? Keep in mind this the very same Tucker Carlson who recently did a report on men tanning their testicles in an effort to become more manly.

I find being offended by swearing bizarre. When you get to the point where having a certain finger raised is just too offensive to show on TV, even though it’s just a finger, you’re being fucking ridiculous. https://t.co/vXC9QpCgk5

Tucker is here to teach us how to be real men but also far too delicate to contend with the onslaught of one middle finger. https://t.co/DBtwrt6whx

A middle finger is a bridge too far… but sticking your man sack in a microwave is totally cool, right?
