He posted a video on Twitter apparently displaying Carlson engaged in a verbal altercation with a person at a rustic membership, and requested for witnesses to come back ahead. 

“We’re investigating an alleged assault on a homosexual latino immigrant dedicated by T. Carlson and/or members of his internal circle at a membership in VA in Oct. It possible contains underage ingesting in violation of VA regulation,” tweeted Avenatti. 

In an in depth response to Avenatti’s allegations, Carlson stated that the person had referred to as his daughter a “whore” and “c**t,” prompting Carlson’s son to throw a glass of wine within the man’s face. He denied accusations that he assaulted the person. 

“On October 13, I had dinner with two of my kids and a few household mates on the Farmington Nation Membership in Charlottesville, Virginia,” Carlson stated. “Towards the top of the meal, my 19-year-old daughter went to the lavatory with a good friend. On their means again by way of the bar, a center aged man stopped my daughter and requested if she was sitting with Tucker Carlson. My daughter had by no means seen the person earlier than. She answered: ‘That’s my dad,’ and pointed to me. The person responded, ‘Are you Tucker’s whore?’ He then referred to as her a ‘f*** c***.’ “

“My daughter returned to the desk in tears,” the assertion continues. “She quickly left the desk and the membership. My son, who can be a pupil, went into the bar to confront the person. I adopted. My son requested the person if he’d referred to as his sister a ‘whore’ and a ‘c**t.’ The person admitted he had, and once more develop into profane. My son threw a glass of crimson wine within the man’s face and informed him to depart the bar, which he quickly did.”

“Instantly after the incident, I described these occasions to the administration of the Farmington Nation Membership,” Carlson stated. “The membership spent greater than three weeks investigating the incident. Final week, they revoked the person’s membership and threw him out of the membership.” 

“I really like my kids,” he provides. “It took monumental self-control to not beat the person with a chair, which is what I wished to do. I believe any father can perceive the overwhelming rage and shock that I felt seeing my teenage daughter attacked by a stranger.”

Nor did I do know the person was homosexual or Latino, not that it might have mattered. What occurred on October 13 has nothing to do with identification politics. It was a grotesque violation of decency. I’ve by no means seen something prefer it in my life.”
