On Monday night, Fox News host Tucker Carlson addressed the controversial comments made by Blake Neff, a former staffer. During the new episode of "Tucker Carlson Tonight," his primetime show, the conservative anchor shared his opinion about what Neff had written in an online forum, which lead to his recent resignation.

After calling Neff's words "wrong," Carlson then added that what the one-time employee said has no connection to the network and is not endorsed by "Tonight," before elaborating on his personal opinions, according to Deadline.

"We should also point out to the ghouls that are beating their chest in triumph at the destruction of a young man that self-righteousness also has its costs," he later said, adding that "when we pretend we are holy, we are lying."

"When we pose as blameless in order to hurt other people, we are committing the gravest sin of all and we will be punished for it. No question," he continued.

Carlson's reaction comes after Neff had allegedly continued to post a variety of mocking and controversial comments on an online message board called AutoAdmit while working at both Fox and The Daily Caller. The forum, which has been likened to 4chan, reportedly allows sexism and racism to "run rampant." Neff allegedly posted under the username CharlesXII and had once been "widely revered" on the platform.

After the news broke about the former writer's past, Fox News Media CEO Suzanne Scott and Fox News Media President & Executive Editor Jay Wallace also illustrated their dislike of Neff's comments in a July 12 memo. Calling the behavior "abhorrent," they then stated that the cable news network had previously been unaware of his behavior outside of the show. After learning of it, they said that they "swiftly accepted his resignation."

"We want to make abundantly clear that Fox News Media strongly condemns this horrific racist, misogynistic and homophobic behavior," they elaborated.

Following the acknowledgment of the controversy on Monday's episode of "Tucker Carlson Tonight," the anchor then stated that he will be taking the rest of the week off to go on a trout fishing break, which, he said, has been planned for quite some time prior to the recent report.
