The world’s largest digital asset management firm has pulled advertising from a Fox News prime-time show following controversial comments about a recent US shooting.
Grayscale Investments, a major crypto investment firm with $5.8 billion in assets, has pulled advertising from Tucker Carlson’s prime-time show following the host’s controversial comments about a recent shooting at a Black Lives Matter protest.
The national campaign to promote digital currencies called “The History of Money” was launched three weeks ago and has been running on CNBC, MSNBC, FOX, and FOX Business.
On August 27, Fox News host, Carlson Tucker, appeared to justify a shooting carried out by a 17-year-old with an automatic rifle that resulted in the death of two protesters and wounded another.
"Are we really surprised that looting and arson accelerated to murder?" Carlson said, "How shocked are we that 17-year-olds with rifles decided they had to maintain order when no one else would?"
Public outcry began to quickly stir on social media.
