Donald Trump Jr was slammed on the internet after he went on to support Tucker Carlson. Carlson was called the “worst human” by a Montana man in a viral video but the former president's son could not stop himself from defending the TV host. He tweeted on July 25, “Is the loser who went out of his way to have someone video him harassing Tucker in public for some viral content the model for the new Pregnant Male Emoji? The likeness is uncanny! #SoBrave.”

The Fox News personality has faced criticism for his divisive and, at times, outright controversial comments. But a person named Dan Bailey in Livingston, Montana, took it a little further by personally approaching Carlson and calling him “the worst human being”. Bailey shared his encounter with Carlson in front of a sporting goods store on Friday, July 23, on Instagram. He wrote in the caption: “It’s not everyday you get to tell someone they are the worst person in the world and really mean it! What an a--hole!”

“This man has killed more people with vaccine misinformation, he has supported extreme racism, he is a fascist and does more to rip this country apart than anyone that calls themselves an American,” he added. Though most of the people on the internet were happy with what Bailey did, Trump Jr was not. He shared a link to an article by The Daily Caller that read, “‘Settle Down, Son’: Tucker Carlson Laughs In Face Of Heckler Who Calls Him ‘Worst Human Being’” while calling Bailey “loser”.

But Don Jr's actions backfired as people on the internet started criticizing him. A user tweeted, “Will you shut up, man?” The second one said, “Jealous? I know you’re trying for the worst human.” The third one wrote, “It was no harassing: it was giving his point of view to TC, who gives his point of view daily to 1000s pple. Th end isn’t an example of kindness but no harassment either. When u are a public person it’s part of it to be recognized and talked to, not always in a way u like… …” One simply asked Don Jr to "Look in the mirror."

A person shared, “If you want to make fun of how people look, ok I’ll play along.” Another one stated, “You shouldn’t be body shaming anyone. Condemn actions not body weight or shape. Glass houses, Jr.” A user posted, “Hey junior, did you mean this guy.” “You're correct in that it doesn't take bravery to call out vileness and immorality; it takes dignity, empathy, and morals — qualities that #MontanaMan has and that you and TC do not,” a tweet read.




A user went on to praise Bailey while replying to Trump Jr, “I loved every second of it! I think if given the opportunity, more people should take the opportunity to engage. Nicly done. No threat. No yelling. Calm. Totally on point. Doing just what a guy like tuck teaches: Sharing thoughts, in the most respectful of ways. Right? Lol.” “You would have no different outcome in the "real world" What he said to Tucker also applies to YOU,” another one added.
