In July 2021, an online ad appeared to indicate that Fox News host Tucker Carlson and actress Vivica A. Fox were in a romantic relationship.
The strange ad appeared to be hosted by the Revcontent advertising platform.
This is a real photograph of Carlson and Fox. However, in this context it was highly misleading. The two are not romantically involved.
We clicked the ad. It led to a story with the headline: “These 41 Celebrity Couples Are Living Proof That True Love Exists No Matter How Famous They Are.” The article spanned 82 pages, and purportedly documented 82 couples, not 41, who were romantically involved. We spotted Richard Gere, Pat Sajak, Willie Nelson, and a whole lot of other prominent celebrities.
However, we found no mention of Carlson or Fox on any of the 82 pages. The ad was nothing but clickbait. We clicked through all 82 pages so our readers don’t have to.
The source of the photograph was found on Getty Images. The picture was shot at a “Dancing with the Stars” after-party on Nov. 14, 2006.
