Carlson wasn't home but says his wife called police and locked herself in a pantry when protesters from a group called Smash Racism, DC, arrived, rang the doorbell, and began chanting: "We will fight. We know where you sleep at night", broke a door, and mentioned a pipe bomb, according to USA Today.
In a separate video, posted by the Daily Caller reporter Benny Johnson on Twitter, the group seems to threaten Carlson's family, telling the Fox News host he is "not safe". Tonight you're reminded that we have a voice.
Video of the incident, which was accompanied with the hashtag #KnockKnockTucker, was removed from Twitter and the group's account was suspended.
While numerous news outlets report the incident as a protest, Tucker Carlson told The Post that it was a threat. The Facebook video was also taken down, but the page is still up.
Fox News issued a statement calling the protest "reprehensible".
"I think Tucker is a bad influence on modern America but that doesn't justify harassing him at home". "Each night you tell us we are not safe".
The progressive commentator and Vox co-founder Matty Yglesias has deleted his entire Twitter feed, on a day when conservatives sharply criticized his remarks about Tucker Carlson's wife.
"The DC reported the group wrote on Twitter: "Tucker Carlson, you can not hide from the people you hurt with your rhetoric, your lies, and your hate", with the hashtag '#KnockKnockTucker'".
Many prominent social media users across the political spectrum condemned the protesters' tactics and offered Carlson their support.
Megyn Kelly, the former Fox News personality who is reportedly in exit talks with NBC, called the demonstration "stomach-turning".
"His family does not deserve this", she added. We as a nation have become far too intolerant of different points of view.
"Recent events across our country clearly highlight the need for a more civil, respectful, and inclusive national conversation", the statement continued. "It was a threat", said Carlson, who is often denounced by critics, particularly liberal critics, for inflammatory rhetoric about immigrants and minorities on his Fox News show. "Those of us in the media and in politics bear a special obligation to all Americans, to find common ground".
