Fox News host Tucker Carlson has earned the ire of viewers with his questions about the January 6 Capitol riots, where he has suggested that there's no evidence to prove the involvement of white supremacists. He added that there was no evidence of "armed insurrection".

During his segment on February 22, Carlson said, " There's no evidence that white supremacists were responsible for what happened on Jan. 6. That's a lie." He further added, "And contrary to what you've been hearing, there's also no evidence this was a, quote, 'armed insurrection.'"

Why is 'Tucker Is A Bigot' trending?

The investigation into the January 6 riots and protests has shown that several people with ties to white supremacist groups participated in storming the Capitol building. Court documents, public records, and other evidence have proved that many symbols of white supremacy were displayed during the clashes. 

During the February 23 Senate hearing on security failures at Capitol, when DC police chief, the former Capitol Police chief, and the former House and Senate sergeants-at-arms were asked if the attack "involved white supremacist and extremist groups", they said "yes" in response. 

But Carlson went on to claim on national television there was no evidence to question the extremist group's involvement and it hasn't sat well with social media users, who have branded him a "bigot" for openly supporting the white supremacists. 

#TuckerIsABigot started trending on Twitter as Carlson's latest statement seems to have swept the users with a shockwave. The majority of them called him out without the slightest hesitation for his "biased" opinion that was presented to his viewers.
