Many Twitter users expressed concern about this.
“Not one of these women could solo host a show and get ratings. Not one. They are & will always be ensemble players. Their jealousy is on full display here, and ideological hatred too of course,” former Fox News host Megyn Kelly said.

“@ABC Hey — This is good. @Fox is being responsible by firing Tucker. CNN is being responsible for firing Lemon,” another Twitter user said. “Now it’s your turn @abc @disney and fire toxic Whoopi, Sunny and Anna. And you @msnbc you have way too many toxic hosts to list.”
“You know who they are and fire them,” they said.
Listen. Tucker is a menace. But Whoopi shouldn't be gloating. She's one anti Semitic comment away from being fired too. She's on thin ice.

Wherever Tucker goes he will still get more viewers than The View and Brian Stelter combined.

Mr. Carlson’s last program was Friday April 21st.
