Tucker Carlson Praises Tweet From Troll Account Named After Porn Site, Owner Mocks Him

The tweet’s message was very Tucker. The account it came from, not so much

If your Twitter hot-take is hot enough, you too can be on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.” Even if you’re a full-blown troll account whose name is a porn reference.

On the Tuesday evening broadcast of the Fox News show, the host was laying into a Bloomberg op-ed with advice for low-income Americans on how to deal with inflation. Then, as a pivot point, Carlson introduced: “Well, there are still geniuses in this country, and some of them post anonymously on Twitter … Here’s what one said.”

The tweet itself was right on target for Carlson’s audience:

“Youre [sic] watching a master level ponzi scheme,” it read. “2020 crash gets laundered through covid bailouts. Covid bailouts laundered through inflation. Inflation laundered through war in ukraine. The war and its effects on the globe will be laundered through climate change. The perps walk.”

But Tucker (and his staff) might have thought better of featuring that particular tweet, had they taken a deeper look into the account that sent it. It came from @BLCKD_COM_PlLLD, an “anonymous sh–poster” (account owner’s own words), who thought the whole thing was doggone funny.

“What makes this all a million times funnier is how many critical tweets i have of tucker lmao,” the account tweeted in response.

“Class Redux Killa” wasn’t done having fun with the newfound fame, using its avatar to imagine what it would be like to actually be on the show:

We’ll leave it to you to put together how “BLCKD_COM_PILLD” is connected to pornography … but let’s just say that the account confirmed as much.
