[WATCH] Livingston Resident Confronts Fox News’ Tucker Carlson
Conservative talk show host Tucker Carlson, host of Tucker Carlson Tonight on Fox News is currently in Montana on vacation. Carlson is known as a controversial figure in mainstream media.
Yesterday, Carlson was spotted in Livingston, Montana at Dan Bailey's Outdoor Company stocking up on gear for a fly fishing trip. While in the store, Carlson was confronted by a local fly fishing guide, Dan Bailey. This particular Dan Bailey, in a bizarre turn of fate, has no relationship to the gear shop he happened to be in when he encountered the Fox News host.

Bailey didn't hold back when telling Carlson how he felt about him. In a video posted on Instagram Friday, Bailey can be seen telling Carlson:
You are the worst human being known to mankind. I want you to know that.
The video has been viewed nearly 15,000 times since it was posted Friday.
It’s not every day you get to tell someone they are the worst person in the world and really mean it! What an [expletive]! This man has killed more people with vaccine misinformation, he has supported extreme racism, he is a fascist and does more to rip this country apart than anyone that calls themselves an American.
Tucker Carlson has hosted the nightly political talk show Tucker Carlson Tonight on Fox News since 2016.
In a strange turn of fate, Dan Bailey's Outdoor Company in Livingston has had to respond on the home page of its website, offering the following explanation only hours after the incident occurred.
On July 23rd, a well-known television personality, Tucker Carlson, was affronted while shopping at Dan Bailey's Outdoor Company. Coincidentally, the person engaging Mr. Carlson was a local resident named Dan Bailey. This person has no affiliation with our business, other than he shares the same name as our founder, who passed away in 1982. To be clear, we treat every customer equally and respectfully. Our staff was professional and cordial to Mr. Carlson, as we are with all of our customers.
In response to being called the worst human being known to mankind, Tucker Carlson can be seen in the video saying "I appreciate that."
