Fox News host Tucker Carlson was hospitalized Thursday evening for what’s since been diagnosed as appendicitis, per Daily Mail.
And the social media responses were brutal, to say the least.
Carlson had a fever, which prompted his doctor to advise that he go to the emergency room.
Check it out:
The condition, which can lead to death if not treated in time, usually requires the inflamed appendix to be surgically removed.
A Fox News spokesperson confirmed the medical emergency and said: ‘Tucker is now being treated for appendicitis. He is in good spirits and expects to back on the air soon.’ Dana Perino will take over for Tucker on Friday night.
Carlson missed the airing of his own segment, including his interview with Otto Warmbier’s father, who called North Korea a “pariah regime” in the interview.
Social media users responded to news of Carlson’s illness:
If I were an internal organ I'd want to get the F out of Tucker too

Surprised he missed. His chronic headuptheassitis never caused him to miss a show.
