Abby Grossberg, a former Fox News producer, has accused Tucker Carlson of creating a hostile work environment during her time at the network.
In an interview with The Daily Beast, Grossberg described her experience working with Carlson as a “nightmare,” saying he frequently made misogynistic and racist comments.
What allegations does Abby Grossberg make?
Fox News terminated Grossberg after complaining about Carlson’s behaviour to the network’s human resources department.
She says that Carlson routinely belittled and criticised her, making derogatory comments about her appearance and accusing her of being “stupid” and “incompetent.” Grossberg also claims that Carlson frequently made racist and sexist remarks about others on the network.
In her interview with The Daily Beast, Grossberg says that she felt “helpless and trapped” while working with Carlson and ultimately decided to file a complaint with human resources after he began screaming at her in front of other staff members.

Fox News denied Grossberg’s allegations, saying she was fired for “performance issues.” In a statement to The Daily Beast, the network said it “takes all allegations of inappropriate conduct seriously” and thoroughly investigated Grossberg’s complaint.
Fox News’ response to Grossberg’s complaint and the outcome of any future investigations may have implications for the network’s reputation and the careers of those involved.
Tucker Carlson’s Reputation
This is not the first time Tucker Carlson has been accused of creating a hostile work environment.
Former Fox News host Gretchen Carlson (no relation) wrote a book where she accused Carlson of harassing her and creating a “toxic atmosphere” at the network.
Carlson has also been criticised for his controversial on-air comments, including remarks about immigrants, women, and the Black Lives Matter movement.
Abby Grossberg’s allegations against Tucker Carlson are the latest in a series of accusations of harassment and misconduct against high-profile figures in the media industry.
The incident highlights the importance of creating safe and respectful work environments for all employees and the need for employers to take allegations of misconduct seriously.
