College Professor Fired Following Appearance on Fox News Where She Defended a Black Lives Matter Party

  College Professor Fired Following Appearance on Fox News Where She Defended a Black Lives Matter Party A college professor who recently appeared on Fox News to defend a Black Lives Matter event in which only black people were invited has been fired. It was announced Friday that Lisa Durden, a former adjunct professor at Essex County College in New Jersey, would be let go from her job following a heated argument on the June 6 episode of Tucker Carlson Tonight. While speaking about an “all-black Memorial Day celebration” hosted by a Black Lives Matter group, Durden, who is black, told the host “you white people are angry because you couldn’t use your white privilege card” to attend the event.

“ Tucker is now being treated for appendicitis . He is in good spirits and expects to back on the air soon,” a Fox News spokesperson said. Ed Henry filled in as the host of “ Tucker Carlson Tonight” on Thursday and Dana Perino will fill in for Carlson on Friday.

Tucker Carlson currently serves as the host of FOX News Channel's (FNC) Tucker Carlson Tonight (weekdays 8PM/ET). Prior to FNC, Carlson hosted Tucker on MSNBC from 2005-2008 and PBS' Tucker Carlson : Unfiltered.

Fox News host Tucker Carlson was absent from his show on Thursday night and TheWrap has learned that he suffered an appendicitis.

"Tucker is now being treated for appendicitis. He is in good spirits and expects to back on the air soon," a Fox News spokesperson said.

Ed Henry filled in as the host of "Tucker Carlson Tonight" on Thursday and Dana Perino will fill in for Carlson on Friday.

On Thursday night, Henry actually hosted the show from the Congressional baseball game where he was originally supposed to provide update for Carlson. He mentioned that he was pinch hitting for the show's namesake while on air.

Carlson shifted to Bill O'Reilly's 8 p.m. ET timeslot back in April and has been the most-watched host on the network ever since. Perino, who will pinch hit tonight, is also on Fox News' 9 p.m. ET show, "The Five," which also moved time slots during the network's shakeup.

Carlson regularly makes news with combative interviews with liberal guests.

Appendicitis is usually treated with surgery and antibiotics, according to the Mayo Clinic. If untreated, the appendix can rupture and cause an abscess or systemic infection (sepsis).
