Watch: Twitter fries Tucker Carlson after his abortion rights social experiment goes awry
Fox News // Tucker Carlson

Fox News' Tucker Carlson found himself at the center of a social experiment gone terribly wrong. The result of his blunder led to widespread mocking on Twitter.

On Monday, May 9, Carlson attempted to a “mob” of demonstrators protesting abortion rights but his viewers may have gotten more than even he bargained for.

Per HuffPost: Carlson told his audience, "he was about to broadcast 'live pictures' of a protest outside the home of Supreme Court Associate Justice Samuel Alito, author of a leaked draft opinion that, if issued, would overturn Roe v. Wade. Carlson noted that this was 'what it looks like when you write an opinion the mob doesn’t like.'”

Instead of capturing a so-called "mob" on camera, one woman became the focal point. At one point during the brief segment, she actually gave Carlson the middle finger.

While it remains unclear if the woman knew she was being featured on Fox News, Twitter users did not pass up the opportunity to slam Carlson.

One user wrote, "I think Tucker has more brains in his arse, than you have in your head sunshine."

Another user wrote, "Tucker Carlson requested to turn off a video of women protesting Justice Alito at his home because it was “too much”. But he is fine talking about tanning your nutsack on national television…. [Tucker Carlson] you ARE a nutsack. You don’t have to tan yours."
