Restaurant chain Red Lobster is the latest company to cave to pressure from the far-left blacklisting campaign against Tucker Carlson, announcing Tuesday that they would no long advertise on Fox News’ Tucker Carlson Tonight.

The Wrap reports that Red Lobster confirmed their removal of ads from Tucker Carlson’s prime time show, saying in a statement, “Red Lobster’s advertising buying guidelines reflect our core values and commitment to supporting programming that represents the highest standards of good taste, fair practice and objectivity.”

“We reserve the right to make changes to our purchases when the dialogue is no longer in line with our criteria.”

Red Lobster is the latest company to pull ads from Carlson’s show. He faced an ad boycott last month over comments criticizing American immigration policy, and he is once again in the crosshairs of the far-left over comments he made about many women who do not want to marry men who earn less than them.

When reached for comment, a Fox News spokesperson referred Breitbart News to a previous statement.

The statement reads:

We cannot and will not allow voices like Tucker Carlson to be censored by agenda-driven intimidation efforts from the likes of Moveon.org, Media Matters and Sleeping Giants.

Attempts were made last month to bully and terrorize Tucker and his family at their home. He is now once again being threatened via Twitter by far left activist groups with deeply political motives.

While we do not advocate boycotts, these same groups never target other broadcasters and operate under a grossly hypocritical double standard given their intolerance to all opposing points of view.

Carlson has indeed faced vicious tactics from the left before. In November, his home, where his wife was home alone, was targeted by Antifa, a group notorious for its tactics of violence and intimidation.

    I don’t go there often, but after this I will never grace their doors again. They can go the way od Dick’s sporting goods as far as I am concerned. They want to use political bias the let them have it.

    Consumer boycott in effect…good luck with that Red Lobster. You must have forgotten about Dick’s Sporting Goods.

    Add me and my wife to the list–though we really enjoy eating at Red Lobster, it’s about time these like-minded corporate lemmings all figure out which side of their bread is buttered. We won’t be eating there again. Just as Home Depot was slammed for promoting the gay agenda to children at Gay Pride Day booths, Dick’s showed their stupidity with the rifle thing, and others have done in the past, we hope that Red Lobster sees the stupidity and ignorance in their ways. What makes these corporate morons want to side with the flaming liberal MINORITY rather than the conservative MAJORITY, I’ll never know. Apparently they never took Business 101….

    Red Lobster will have to kiss my ass before I ever go there again. Any business that bows to leftists is doomed to failure. Hold the door open Chick-Fil-A, I’m on they way for some great food. Oh, and I will not spend one red cent in the state of Michigan as long as that foul mouthed scumbag muslim anti-Jewish representative is in office. I noticed my spell checker wants me to capitalize the first letter in muslim. Ain’t going to happen, baby.

      Give your gift card to a homeless person begging for food. I will not be eating there again, not one of my favorites anyway. Rather have some Mississippi pond raised catfish with homemade slaw & hush puppies.

    Odd how these spineless businesses cave to a bullying Democratic party. I had no idea that only liberals ate at Red Lobster. So, the fact that 65,000,000 Americans voted for conservative candidates, including the POTUS, has no bearing on their customer base and bottom line profits. Suddenly, these places go braindead until the profits are drastically reduced and cannot be recovered. Dick’s Sporting Goods is the poster child for going all stupid.

    That’s it for me. Red Lobster food quality, service and competitive pricing has really gone downhill since the first few years, anyway. I’ve never missed watching football since the kneeling began, and i won’t miss Red Lobster.

    Time to boycott these advertisers that don’t believe in free speech.

    Don’t forget Target on your boycott list! “Home of the perves”.
    Red Lobster is overpriced frozen, high calorie rubber seafood anyway!
    RL is owned by Golden Gate Capital of San Fransico. They also own Bob Evans and CA Pizza Kitchens.
    None of which is a big loss for me!

    Red Lobster isn’t any big deal anymore. The food isn’t as good as it once was. One time I was going to order the lobster Pizza. I asked, half jokingly, if it were real lobster. Reply was no. I am not into dining on fake food. Not sure how well they are financially doing. My thought is not good business sense to take political sides since customers are from either side of the aisle….
