Fox News’ Guest Claims That All Advertising May Have to Be Approved by Black Lives Matter
A Fox News guest claimed on Monday that all advertising may in future be subject to approval by Black Lives Matter after billboards about poverty were removed. The billboards showed an African American woman and claimed saving money and getting married would alleviate poverty, among other actions.
Star Parker spoke to Fox & Friends’ Brian Kilmeade and expressed her outrage about the billboards being taken down. Kilmeade pointed out that a local Democrat had called for them to be removed.
“They actually stormed the offices of Clear Channel,” Parker said.
“Clear Channel is based in Baltimore. We’re running these ads in major metropolitans around the country what the rioting did. The next morning everyone has a hangover, what should we do next? Well, if you’re really tired of poverty that’s all you have to do. Finish school. Take any job. Get married. Save and invest. Give back to your neighborhood. This is how you fix that reality without government. This is individual initiatives. These are home truths. These are scientific truths. These are moral truths. And for them to pressure the can be to take them down this is unacceptable.”
Kilmeade quoted on criticism of the billboards and Parker responded with a huge claim.
“You know what, if you look at the thread of Black Lives Matter, they said no, we control the narrative. We control the messaging. This is something that we all should take very seriously because what will happen next see all magazines and advertising have to go through this Black Lives Matter movement for approval,” Parker said.
“This is absolutely unacceptable and in a free country.”
