The remarks by The Daily Wire's Luke Rosiak to Fox host Tucker Carlson on Carlson's Fox Nation show mirror remarks made on Fox News by The Daily Wire's Michael Knowles in 2019.
When Knowles, during an appearance on Fox program The Story, referred to climate activist Greta Thunberg as a “mentally ill Swedish child,” Fox issued a statement calling the remarks “disgraceful” and while also issuing an apology to Thunberg and to its viewers:
A Fox News spokesperson provided the following statement to The Daily Beast on Knowles’ remarks: “The comment made by Michael Knowles who was a guest on The Story tonight was disgraceful—we apologize to Greta Thunberg and to our viewers.”
Fox News also told The Hollywood Reporter’s Jeremy Barr that it has no plans to book Knowles again as a guest.
While Fox News said it had no plans to host Knowles again, Carlson would host him in July, 2021.
