ABUSIVE! Tucker Carlson’s Producer Cursed Me Out, Banned Me From Show, Says Dinesh D’Souza

Dinesh D’Souza is calling for Fox News Channel‘s CEO to address the “abusive” exchange with Tucker Carlson‘s show producer Justin Wells for blacklisting “2000 Mules.”

The author and filmmaker posted a lengthy Twitter thread with quotes from Wells about the exchange, demanding an apology from Carlson and the producer.

“I’m really not quite sure what is going on at Fox. I’m not quite sure if this is some kind of generic Fox ban on mentioning the movie. I’m not sure if there’s something specific to Tucker.

Have you seen "2000 Mules"?

He discussed the exchange on “The Jenna Ellis Show” Thursday (18:46 – 20:31):

This was a little bit about bad blood that went back several months in which one of our teaser trailers — Tucker was going to have Catherine Engelbrecht on, and she said, ‘Oh, we have this great teaser trailer for the movie,’ and then the Tucker people said to me, ‘Dinesh, we’re going to have to cut your trailer from 90 seconds to 45 seconds,’ and I’m like yeah, sure, you want the front part or the back part, and they’re like, ‘No, no, we want the middle part,’ and I was like, the middle part? So you want to cut out this, Salem Media, and then you want to cut out the fact that it’s part of a movie, so you’re basically stealing our content, pretending like you produced the segment. I go that’s not really fair, so why don’t you just have Catherine on, don’t show the clip because it’s not your clip. If you’re going to show it then you kind of need to say it’s part of a movie and so on, and then they became unbelievably — not Tucker — this was his producer, Justin B. Wells. He’s like, ‘Oh, Dinesh, you’re finished. You’ll never be on Tucker ever again.’ Abusive type of behavior. And the problem is when you have a network that’s the only place to go, I think it encourages this kind of arrogance where people basically feel like they can brutalize you because, ultimately, you’re going to shut up and take it becuase, otherwise, you’re going to be banned on Fox News. So I decided, I’m not going to say anything about it, but then when recently, Catherine Engelbrecht went back on Tucker, and they specifically told her don’t say a word about that movie, I thought, well this is a little too much. The movie is now out. People are talking about it, and think of how weird Tucker’s segment was discussing the content of the movie under explicit directives not to mention it. Very creepy.
