Celebrities hit back at Fox News’ Tucker Carlson en masse Friday after he dedicated a segment of his primetime show to criticizing them for donations they made to bail out those arrested during the protests and to charities to fight racial injustice.During Friday’s show, Carlson read a list of celebrity names, as footage of violent protesting, fires and looting ran behind him. The combination suggested that celebrities were “funding this chaos” by donating to Black Lives Matter and other groups that pay to get “violent rioters out of jail.”“Big companies — cynical, soulless, craven corporations like Pepsi, Intel and AirBnB — are funding this chaos. They’re giving money to Black Lives Matter which is pushing to defund the police. But it isn’t just major corporations that are fueling all of this. Celebrities are, too, by paying to get violent rioters out of jail,” Carlson said.Tucker Carlson thinks he’s outing celebrities pic.twitter.com/Xm8ie64rbF— Acyn Torabi (@Acyn) June 6, 2020Also Read: Fox News Apologizes for Graph on Market Reactions to Civil Unrest: 'Never Should Have Aired'Among those Carlson named was Rapper Lil Nas X.“Rapper Lil Nas X urged his 4.7 million Twitter followers to donate to bail groups in Chicago, New York, Philadelphia and elsewhere,” Carlson said. “Imagine if he had used those followers instead to help small businesses destroyed by the riots he helped incite.”The rapper reposted to Carlson, tweeting, “this man just lied and told millions of people on national television that i was inciting riots. you can’t make this up.”this man just lied and told millions of people on national television that i was inciting riots. you can’t make this up. https://t.co/RVbs6oPx9w— nope (@LilNasX) June 6, 2020Seth Rogen took the critique in stride, writing, “I think when white supremacists are bothered by your actions, that’s probably a good thing.” He responded to Lil Nas X, too, saying, “F— this pasty a–hole.”I think when white supremacists are bothered by your actions, that’s probably a good thing.— Seth Rogen (@Sethrogen) June 6, 2020Also Read: Michael Jordan Pledges $100 Million to Fight Racial InjusticeHalsey, also on Carlson’s list, replied to both of them:Ahh my fellow “Domestic terrorists”.

During a live broadcast on Friday night, a news crew covering protests in Louisville, Kentucky, was fired upon by a police officer who used guns that shot pepper balls.The crew, reporter Kaitlin Rust and two camera operators for NBC affiliate WAVE in Louisville, were broadcasting from the scene of a protest inspired by Breonna Taylor, a Louisville EMT who in March was killed in her own home by police who went to the wrong address while executing a warrant, and George Floyd, a Minneapolis man who was killed by a police officer on Memorial Day.In the clip, Rust is wearing a bright safety vest and is clearly identified as a journalist. As she explains to the news anchors what she’s seeing on the ground, the camera turns away from Rust and toward a line of police officers, at which point Rust can be heard screaming in pain just off camera. “I’m getting shot, I’m getting…” Rust says, still off camera.Also Read: CNN Headquarters in Atlanta Vandalized During Protests Over Police Killings“Katie, Katie, are you OK?” the anchor asks, at which point Rust hastily adds “rubber bullets, rubber bullets, it’s OK. It’s those pepper bullets.” As she’s speaking, the camera turns to an officer who appears to aim his gun directly into the camera. Watch the whole clip below:This just happened on live tv. Wow, what a douche bag. pic.twitter.com/dQKheEcCvb— Christopher Bishop (@ChrisBishopL1C4) May 30, 2020According to WAVE, Louisville police confirmed they use pepper balls and not rubber bullets. Police did not explain why their officers targeted media, or aimed weapons directly at live cameras.“I want to apologize,” a Louisville Metro Police spokesperson told the Louisville Courier-Journal, promising an investigation into the matter. “It’s not something that should have occurred if she was singled out as a reporter, and that is what the video looks like occurred.”The incident came hours after Minneapolis police arrested a CNN reporter and camera crew while they were live on air reporting on protests in that city. The three journalists were later released.The protests in Louisville were just one of many sweeping the country Friday inspired by people killed by police. Among them, in Atlanta earlier Friday, protesters vandalized CNN headquarters, while in Los Angeles on Friday night, protesters and police clashed in downtown.Read original story Louisville Cop Fires Pepper Balls at News Crew Covering Protests on Live TV (Video) At TheWrap
