Outrageous Canadian TV Host Suspended, Then Fired After Appearing on 'Tucker Carlson Tonight'
Stephen LeDrew was back on the show Wednesday to discuss his suspension and firing by Canadian broadcaster CP24.
LeDrew was on the show with Tucker in late November to discuss LGBT issues, including teachers being forced to attend "LGGBDTTTIQQAAPP" inclusiveness training.
The interview made headlines and apparently ruffled some feathers in Canada, Tucker said.
LeDrew said Bell Media, operator of CP24, immediately suspended him for seven days for violating its code of conduct by appearing on a "competitor" network.
LeDrew said he was fired after he urged his bosses to explain to the public why he was suspended.
"They said, 'well now you're fired because you're mocking us, no one likes to be ridiculed.' It was a ridiculous decision," he said, adding it was the decision of one person at the otherwise "great" organization.
Carlson said LeDrew should come to the United States, where he would be welcomed as a "free speech refugee."
"The irony is we were talking about freedom of speech in Canada. You were saying, 'you can say whatever you want in Canada' and I said, 'I don't think you can.' And you got fired for saying that!" Carlson said.
