On Friday, popular Fox News personality Tucker Carlson was confronted by a heckler named Dan Bailey at a fly fishing shop.
Strangely, the shop is called Dan Bailey’s Outdoor Company, though the heckler Bailey is not related.
In the video, Bailey told Carlson that he is the “worst human being known to mankind.”
Bailey could be seen walking up to Carlson in a video posted to his personal Instagram account.
“This man has killed more people with vaccine misinformation, he has supported extreme racism, he is a fascist and does more to rip this country apart than anyone that calls themselves an American,” Bailey said on Instagram.
“You are the worst human being known to mankind. I want you to know that,” Bailey said to Carlson.
When Tucker told Bailey that his family was present, Bailey responded with “I don’t care that your daughter is here.”
“I appreciate that,” Carlson replied.
Carlson later told Bailey to “settle down, son.”
A spokesman for the store later told the Huffington Post that despite sharing a name, Dan Bailey was not affiliated with the store in any way.
“This person has no affiliation with our business, other than he shares the same name as our founder, who passed away in 1982,” the spokesman said. “To be clear, we treat every customer equally and respectfully.”
“Our staff was professional and cordial to Mr. Carlson, as we are with all of our customers,” the spokesman added.
A Fox News spokesperson told the Daily Caller, who reported this story, “Ambushing Tucker Carlson while he is in a store with his family is totally inexcusable — no public figure should be accosted regardless of their political persuasion or beliefs simply due to the intolerance of another point of view.”
