In a bizarre and unexpected twist of fate, former Fox News host Tucker Carlson has taken to Twitter to publicly praise Elon Musk after being fired from his long-held position at the network.
In a series of tweets, Carlson sang the praises of the Twitter Head, lauding his efforts in bringing down the Bud Light empire after a botched PR stunt.
The tweet that started it all read: “Just got fired from Fox, but at least Twitter Head @elonmusk is out there saving humanity from mediocre beer. #BudLightFail #SilverLinings.”
Carlson’s tweet referenced the recent Bud Light debacle, in which the company’s sales plummeted following criticism from Musk.
The incident began when Bud Light sent cans of their beer to Instagram user Dylan Mulvaney, who proceeded to share pictures and videos with her followers. Musk, ever-vigilant in the pursuit of justice, exposed the PR stunt for what it was and led the charge in boycotting the beer giant.
Tucker Carlson, clearly touched by Musk’s valiant actions, decided to focus on the silver lining in his recent career upheaval by celebrating the Twitter Head’s triumph over Bud Light. In a string of tweets, he continued to applaud Musk’s dedication to protecting the taste buds of humanity:
“@elonmusk, I raise my glass (not filled with Bud Light) to you, sir. Thank you for making our lives a little less hoppy and a lot more classy. #BeerRevolution”
Though some have speculated that Carlson’s sudden admiration for Musk may be an attempt to gain favor with the Twitter Head, the sincerity of his tweets is hard to deny.
As the world continues to reel from the Bud Light fiasco, it seems that even those suffering personal setbacks, like Carlson, can find solace in Musk’s noble crusade against subpar beer.
In a statement to the press, Carlson elaborated on his newfound respect for Musk: “As a journalist, I have always been dedicated to uncovering the truth.
In his own way, Elon Musk is doing the same – exposing the failed PR stunts of beer companies and giving us all a better world to live in. If that’s not a hero, I don’t know what is.”
So as Tucker Carlson navigates the uncertain waters of unemployment, he can at least take solace in the fact that Elon Musk has made the world a safer place – one tweet at a time.
