At the GLAAD Media Awards in New York City Saturday, two activists called out Fox News Channel host Tucker Carlson, saying he incited his viewers to send them hateful messages.

Brandon Wolf, a survivor of the Pulse nightclub shooting and a gun reform activist, and Blair Imani, a queer Muslim woman, told of harassment at the hands of Carlson’s fans. Imani came out as queer “accidentally” last year on an episode of Tucker Carlson Tonight, where she was discussing the need for Muslim safe spaces. “It went about as well as you’d expect,” she said. “Tucker Carlson went off on me, and his audience put me through it, even sending me death threats.”
