T-Mobile’s new CEO tweeted’bye-bye Tucker Carlson’ multiple times this week. Sievert’s tone in these tweets appears to be an attempt to emulate the famously-brash tone of John Legere, his predecessor.
T-Mobile CEO Mike Sievert tweeted that his company was n’t currently running ads on the show and would n’t be moving forward.
We are n’t running ads on that show and we wo n’t be running ads in the future. We’re n’t running commercials on that shows and we will n’t be doing that show in the past.
T-Mobile has n’t run ads on Carlson’s show since May. The company has cancelled’all future placements’.
We have n’t run ads on Tucker Carlson since early May. We will continue to support those who stand against racial injustice.
‘it is definitely not about black lives and remember that when they come for you, and at this rate, they will,’ he said. The comments echoed racist sentiment against the black lives matters protests.

A FOX News spokesperson tried to deflect criticism by suggesting that it was Democratic leaders, not protesters, who he believed would’come for’.
Plus, papa Johns, smile direct club, and other big advertisers have pulled their ads from Tucker Carlson. Deadline reported that Disney/ABC ads were placed on his show’in error by third parties’.
