On Saturday, July 24, a video of a man calling Fox News star Tucker Carlson "the worst human being" went viral on social media. The incident happened on Friday, July 23, in front of a sporting goods store.

Carlson has been increasingly chastised on Fox News for his divisive and, at times, outright controversial comments. The Pentagon condemned Carlson in March after he said women in "maternity flight suits" amounted to the mockery of the US military.

Then, in May, Joy-Anne Reid dubbed Carlson "Tuckums" after tearing him apart in an MSNBC segment after he referred to her as "the race lady". He was compelled to give a rare on-air apology in November 2020 after falsely alleging that dead people were voting in Georgia.

Following the incident on July 23, Dan Bailey posted a video of his encounter in Livingston, Montana, on Instagram. The rest of the dialogue is difficult to understand, but Bailey clearly expressed himself 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!” Bailey wrote according to the NY Daily News.


“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 said.

'Montana Man is all of us'

People took to Twitter to share their views. "Thank you, Montana Man, for telling Tucker Carlson to his stupid, lying face "you are the worst human being known to mankind. This is AWESOME," said one. "Dear @TuckerCarlson Montana Man is all of us," a second quipped. "Sometimes the truth hurts @TuckerCarlson", a third said. A fourth pitched in, saying, "The Montana Man who just unabashedly destroyed Tucker Carlson, and the patriotic Kentucky woman who told Rand Paul to "Get F****d," should BOTH be given the Presidential Medal of Freedom."





'HERO in my book'

"The best thing about this clip is that this dude is exactly the “profile” of the person that Tucker *thinks* he is impressing on air and the only one he wants validation from…you can tell he’s feeling humiliated," said a fan of the video. "He’s such a b***h. I don’t know who that guy is but good on him for recognizing the devastation that sorry pandering piece of s**t has caused Americans. That f*****s got blood on his hands and there’s no coming back from that. F**k @TuckerCarlson…somebody buy that man a beer!" said another. "The Montana man who told Tucker Carlson he’s the worst human being on the planet right to his face is a HERO in my book," another added.




'You’ve got to be a real loser to think tucker looks bad here'

Others think that Carlson did a good job at dealing with 'Montana Man'. "Tucker called him “son” & he got so triggered, “don’t call me son” LMAO. Humiliating for the fisherman with the massive beer gut. Gross and unhealthy. Total tool acting like a child. Tucker handled him better than I would have What a legend," said one. "you’ve got to be a real loser to think tucker looks bad here. aggressively confronting a guy like this while he’s out with his daughter because you don’t like his politics? grow up," said a second.



Following the incident, a Fox News spokesperson came out with the following statement: "Ambushing Tucker Carlson while he is in a store with his family is totally inexcusable — no public figure should be accosted regardless of their political persuasion or beliefs simply due to the intolerance of another point of view.”

The confrontation took place at a store called Dan Bailey's Outdoor Company. The store said: "On July 23rd, a well-known television personality, Tucker Carlson, was affronted while shopping at Dan Bailey’s Outdoor Company. Coincidentally, the person engaging Mr Carlson was a local resident named Dan Bailey. This person has no affiliation with our business, other than share the same name as our founder, who passed away in 1982. To be clear, we treat every customer equally and respectfully. Our staff was professional and cordial to Mr Carlson, as we are with all of our customers."
