Legendary musician Kid Rock reacted with two epic words to the bombshell news that Tucker Carlson is re-launching his independence on Twitter.
As Slay News reported earlier, Carlson posted a new video to Twitter to announce that he’s telling Rupert Murdoch and the goons at Fox News to keep their money and he will go it alone.
Before he made his announcement, Carlson put Fox News on notice and accused the network of fraud and breach of contract.
He is still under contract with Fox until January 2025 so he will be walking away from $20 million a year by launching his show on Twitter.
Elon Musk probably made him a sweet deal to join Twitter but the details have not been made public yet.
But Carlson appears to be readying a lawsuit against Fox News over the fraud claims.
A letter from Carlson’s lawyer Bryan Freedman was sent to Fox officials Viet Dinh and Irena Briganti.
The letter claims that Fox employees, including “Rupert Murdoch himself,” broke promises to Carlson “intentionally and with reckless disregard for the truth.”
The letter says: “These actions not only breached the covenant of good faith and fair dealing in the Agreement, but give rise to claims for breach of contract, and intentional and negligent misrepresentation.
“Make no mistake, we intend to subpoena Ms. Briganti’s cell phone records and related documents, which evidence communications with her and all media, including, but not limited to The New York Times.”
Meanwhile, Carlson is not waiting around to see what happens in court.
Hours after sending his letter, Tucker announced his new show with a new video on Twitter that has been viewed millions of times, blowing cable news viewer numbers out of the water.
“Free speech is the main right you have. Without it, you have no others. Speech is the fundamental prerequisite for democracy.
“That’s why it was enshrined in the first of our Constitutional amendments.
“Amazingly, as of tonight, there are not that many platforms left that allow free speech. The last big one remaining … is Twitter, where we are now.
“Twitter has long served as the place where our national conversation incubates and develops. Twitter is not a partisan site.
“Starting soon we’ll be bringing a new version of the show we’ve been doing for the last six and a half years to Twitter.
“Without it, you have no others. See you soon.”
Kid Rock, speaking for millions of Tucker’s fans, said simply: “F*ck Yeah!”
