Tucker Carlson's attorney responds defiantly after Fox reportedly sends cease-and-desist letter seeking to shut down Twitter show

Fox News has sent a cease-and-desist letter to Tucker Carlson amid the popular broadcaster releasing two monologue-type commentary videos on Twitter, Axios reported Monday.

"My friend and client @TuckerCarlson will not be silenced by the far left or Fox News," attorney Harmeet Dhillon tweeted Monday morning, appending a link to the piece on Axios covering a cease-and-desist letter sent to Carlson by the network.

Axios did not include the text of the cease-and-desist letter, saying that the letter has "NOT FOR PUBLICATION" in bold at the top.

Dhillon went on to explain that Fox News is "not a place" for her until the network "stops trying to silence Tucker." She added she has friends still under contract at Fox and that she feels for them.

"I am passionately committed to free speech and a free flow of information necessary for a free society," Dhillon said.

The popular liberty-minded lawyer was not done there, however. She urged Congress, influencers, and GOP officials to carefully consider decisions about appearing on the network she says has "caved into pressure to silence Tucker Carlson."

"Do you really want to air your views on a network that spits on its viewers, leaks oppo on its own talent, and even threatens former talent for speaking, for free, on @Twitter?"

"You have free will!"

"What you are seeing on Fox today is a censored version of the news," Dhillon also said in the multi-part tweet thread.

Tucker Carlson and Fox News Channel parted ways April 21. After Carlson's departure, the network suffered deeply plummeting ratings, as TheBlaze reported.

Carlson re-emerged on Twitter April 26, in a short video calling out the faults of major media outlets. A June 6 video Carlson posted to the platform as "Episode 1" amassed more than 114.8 million views. Episode 2, released June 8, has nearly 55 million views. The second installment's video was emblazoned with a "Tucker on Twitter" typographical logo.

Elon Musk noted May 9 that Twitter had "not signed any deal of any kind whatsoever" with the broadcaster, as TheBlaze reported.

Tucker Carlson Tonight's former executive producer Justin Wells tweeted Sunday that the next episode of "Tucker on Twitter" will be released Tuesday. The content will reportedly cover former President Donald Trump's indictment in the federal classified documents probe.

Fox News did not respond to a request for comment from Axios.
