More and more advertisers are cutting ties with Fox News host Tucker Carlson over his controversial statements about white supremacy.

On Thursday, the fast-food chain Long John Silver’s decided to part way with the network, according to Media Matters’ Angelo Carusone.

Nestlé and HelloFresh, which have advertised on Carlson’s show in the past, told The Hollywood Reporter they were no longer running ads on the show. Nestlé said it had no plans to do so in the future.

The decision from these companies to drop Carlson comes after the Fox News host told his viewers that the white supremacy problem in America is a “hoax” created by the media.

“The whole thing is a lie,” said Carlson. “It’s actually not a real problem in America.”
