Tucker Carlson will speak at Rainbow Omega fundraising event in Alabama on Thursday

Tucker Carlson is slated to speak on Thursday at a fundraising event for Rainbow Omega, an organization that provides care for adults with developmental disabilties.

Carlson had already been scheduled to speak at the event long before the surprise press release last week from Fox News Media claiming the network and Carlson had "agreed to part ways."

"He'll be here Thursday," Tim Hodge of Rainbow Omega said, according to AL.com. "We actually booked him back last fall," he noted. "This is something we planned months in advance," he said. "It's unusual timing," Hodge noted. "He's honored what he said he would do," he said. "We're looking forward to him being here and being part of our fundraiser."

The mission of Rainbow Omega is "to glorify God by ensuring that adults with developmental disabilities have a permanent and safe home where their abilities and potentials are respected and nurtured in a Christian environment."

Last week, the Wall Street Journal reported that according to people, who the outlet did not identify in its article, Carlson learned he was being let go around 10 minutes before Fox announced the split.

Megyn Kelly, who has previously worked at Fox News, claimed last week that Carlson had not been fired but remains a Fox News Channel employee who is under contract and needs to negotiate his exit.

Fox News Channel's 8 p.m. ratings plunged last week without Carlson, and some people canceled their subscriptions to the Fox Nation streaming service.

Carlson released a brief video on Twitter last week that has earned more than 23 million views so far.
