Former Green Bay Packers quarterback Brett Favre is speaking out in support of former Fox News host Tucker Carlson — calling for a boycott of the news network over Carlson’s firing.

The former star quarterback tweeted out his support for Carlson on Monday morning, sharing a clip of another former Fox News host, Megyn Kelly, blasting the network on her podcast and warning her viewers that Fox News is “banking” on them coming back when primary season arrives.

“They are banking on you coming back to them,” Kelly said in the video clip. “They’ve got a debate in August. You can’t resist. You’ll go. You’ll forgive everything. They’re banking on it. DeSantis is likely to announce this month. You’re gonna turn on Fox News. You can’t go to CNN. You’re not gonna go to Newsmax. You’re not going to go to digital media. You’re gonna tune in to the Fox News primetime, you lap dogs. It’s what you always do. It’s how they have billions.”


“That’s what’s happening here,” she continued. “Keep him silent on the sidelines for as long as possible, unable to use his voice on any of these things — on Fox, on politics, on anything. And we will win in the end, like we always do.”

The video — which also includes clips of Carlson calling out the actions of the U.S. political establishment and important cultural issues — was shared by Favre with the caption: “I’m with Tucker. Time to boycott Fox until they come to their senses and let the man speak.”

Meanwhile, Fox News executives are reportedly taking action to try to sideline Carlson through the 2024 presidential election season, according to Breitbart News. The former Fox News host is still under contract with the network despite his firing, which prohibits him from starting a new show until the contract term is concluded.

However, reports also indicate that Carlson is trying to negotiate his exit from the contract, as he recently hired a powerhouse attorney.


During a recent interview on Newsmax, Breitbart News Washington Bureau Chief Matthew Boyle discussed what he has learned about the matter from conversation with people at Fox News.

“I spent all last week talking to people at the network, inside, outside people for all sorts of different sources with familiarity of what’s actually going on here, and the big reveal — yes —  is that Tucker is still under contract” and they are “holding it over his head like the sword of Damocles,” Boyle said.

“They’re not allowing him to go out there and do something else. They refuse to release him from the contract and negotiate an exit at this time. The Murdoch family is trying to keep him silent,” Boyle added, noting that the Murdochs and their allies “were getting increasingly unnerved by the third rail topics that Tucker was regularly hitting on his show.”
