Tucker Carlson isn't the only Fox News personality experiencing harassment over his affiliations. Fox News contributor Kat Timpf, a regular on "The Greg Gutfeld Show," says she recently felt compelled to leave a bar after a woman became "belligerent" upon learning that she worked for the one right-leaning mainstream news channel.
"I was just ran out of an establishment because of where I work. Chewed out, abused. But I guess that’s the norm now," Timpf tweeted Friday night.

This is not the first time Timpf has been harassed in public. The last time it happened a man dumped water on her. The continued verbal assault by the woman caused Timpf to flee the bar, in this case.
National Review, to which Timpf is a contributor, talked with her on Monday about the ugly situation at the Brooklyn bar. The Review's Jack Rowe notes that this isn't the first time Timpf has been harassed while out on the town in New York City; twice before she's found herself the target of public rebuke.
Rowe reports that after being separated from her friends while in a conversation with a guy, who asked her about her occupation, she was confronted by a woman she'd never met, who, "after hearing she worked at Fox News, became enraged and began shouting at her in a threatening manner."
