“You know, I know plenty of people who are for Black Lives Matter. A lot of them are nice people,” Carlson said on the latest episode of conservative website The Federalist’s “Federalist Radio Hour” show.
“I’m not mad at them. I disagree,” he continued. “I think Black Lives Matter is poison. OK, they have another view. That’s all right.”
Carlson’s “poison” comment drew anger on Twitter, where critics referenced his past racist rhetoric.
