The Fox News host took to Twitter on Thursday to respond to a new clip from Media Matters for America that showed Carlson engaging in what Gutfeld called “casual comments” between two people who work together. “Tucker Carlson asks makeup artist if ‘pillow fights ever break out’ in the women’s bathroom in new behind-the-scenes video,” Media Matters tweeted along with a clip of the exchange.
“Imagine having to tell your parents that your job is narcing on the casual comments of other people while they, happily unaware, make a living,” Gutfeld snapped back. “Your parents would be so embarrassed and ashamed they’d rather tell their friends you died in a fire.”

At the time of this publication, Gutfeld’s response has been viewed more than 2.5 million times.
Gutfeld hasn’t held back his thoughts on “hall monitor failures” like Media Matters and The New York Times who have been disseminating videos seemingly to damage the reputation of the popular ex-Fox News host.
“NEW FOXLEAKS: Media Matters obtained three more behind-the-scenes videos featuring former Fox host Tucker Carlson’s creepy on-set comments,” Media Matters senior fellow Matt Gertz tweeted.

Gutfeld replied, “Apparently everyone understands nonsense banter between segments except for hall monitor failures bitterly chronicling the lives of the far more successful.”
Former Fox News host Megyn Kelly also slammed the leaked clips, saying they are clearly an orchestrated “destruction campaign.”
“Fox News is suffering what could fairly be called a bloodbath at eight o’clock and now their entire primetime is suffering as a result of it as viewers’ anger escalates to exponential levels in the wake of this unfair treatment of their number one star,” Kelly said during her Wednesday show.
“This is absurd. OK, this is absurd,” she claimed. “This is a destruction campaign and the media is going along with it without one thought for how they’re participating in what is an internal work dispute, allowing themselves to be used as tools of Irena Briganti who runs the Fox evil communications department and her bosses who are clearly allowing all of this.”
