Tucker Carlson continues to dupe liberals with his Twitter bio

Tucker Carlson continues to dupe liberals with his Twitter bio

Fox News host Tucker Carlson appears to have fooled liberals into thinking he was once again hacked by filling his Twitter bio with progressive language.

On Tuesday, Twitter users began noticing that Carlson’s bio had suddenly been changed to include not only gender pronouns, but emojis of the transgender flag.

“Non-binary climate change activist of color. Visionary tech entrepreneur. CNBC market analyst. Informal Zelensky advisor,” the bio read.

The discovery soon led to many online claiming that Carlson’s profile had undoubtedly been hacked.

A popular account claiming affiliation with the Anonymous hacking collective received more than 3,000 retweets after stating that the pundit had been compromised.

“Tucker Carlson @TuckerCarlson you have been #hacked,” @AnonOpsSe wrote.

The tweet from @AnonOpsSe was seen by many as proof that hackers had taken credit for Carlson’s bio.

Shortly after, Media as well as other prominent left-wing Twitter users began suggesting that the bio change could be linked to @AnonOpsSe.

“Last night, Tucker Carlson’s Twitter was hacked by Anonymous…” the infamous Democrat netizen BrooklynDad_Defiant! wrote before detailing the bio’s language. “And that might be the only time he seemed very interesting to anyone other than his cousin-fucking viewers. “He’s still an insufferable, lying piece of shit.”

Still, it appears that the entire incident originated with Carlson himself. Fox News later said in a statement that the host had not been “hacked” or compromised in any way.

Although further details have not been provided, Carlson’s biography has been changed unexpectedly in the past.

In late May, the same hacking claims circulated across Twitter after Carlson’s bio suddenly included “Fully Vaccinated” and “They/Their” pronouns next to a Ukrainian flag emoji. Analysis of Internet Archive by the Daily Dot at the time showed that Carlson’s bio had been changed nearly two weeks prior, making a hack highly unlikely given that the Fox News host had tweeted repeatedly over that time frame.

Since Tuesday’s shakeup, Carlson’s bio has once again been restored to the one that first confused Twitter users back in May.

The Daily Dot reached out to Fox News for comment, but did not receive a response. Given the apparent success of his trolling efforts, Carlson may well change his Twitter bio again.
