Among Neff's most telling posts are a reference to "foodie faggots", a comment stating, "Black doods staying inside playing Call of Duty is probably one of the biggest factors keeping crime down", and another comment stating that Democratic U.S. House Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley, and Rashida Tlaib, all women of color, want to "MAKE YOUR COUNTRY A DUMPING GROUND FOR PEOPLE FROM THIRD WORLD SHITHOLES".

Tucker will be addressing this on his show on Monday night.

Fox News' Howard Kurtz took time on Sunday to acknowledge the news that the network fired Tucker Carlson's lead writer in light of his deeply offensive, unearthed comments.

Political talk show host Tucker Carlson's top writer has resigned after racist online posts he had published under a pseudonym surfaced, CNN reported Friday. "Make no mistake, actions such as his can not and will not be tolerated at any time in any part of our workforce".

And more: "When not making his own bigoted comments, Neff has shown a willingness to respond to others who were, without expressing any hesitation, much less disgust, about what they've said".

When asked in a 2018 appearance on Fox's "The Five" about the writing process for his show, Carlson said he spends hours working on scripts, but referred to Neff by name, saying he was a "wonderful writer" and acknowledging his pivotal assistance.

"Neff's abhorrent conduct on this forum was never divulged to the show or the network until Friday, at which point we swiftly accepted his resignation", the network said in an internal memo.

In June, a number of high-profile sponsors, including T-Mobile, Papa John's and Walt Disney Co, moved to distance themselves from the show after Carlson made comments about the Black Lives Matter movement and protests over the killing of George Floyd. "Remember that when they come for you, and at this rate, they will". He also called Duckworth, an Asian American who is also the first woman to give birth while serving in the Senate, a "moron", "fraud" and "callous hack".
