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.

Earlier today, Yglesias tweeted, “I honestly cannot empathize with Tucker Carlson’s wife at all – I agree that protesting at her house was tactically unwise and shouldn’t be done — but I am utterly unable to identify with her plight at any level.” That tweet has been deleted, of course, but it survives in screenshots and in responses that Yglesias’s critics made to him online:

Yglesias was, of course, talking about the protest outside Fox News host Tucker Carlson’s home on Wednesday. Carlson’s wife Susan, who was home alone at the time, said she believed that she was experiencing a “home invasion” when the demonstrators banged on her door. The protesters, organized by Smash Racism DC, yelled, “Tucker Carlson, we will fight! We know where you sleep at night!” You can watch the event here.
Police Are Investigating the Incident at Tucker Carlson’s House as a Possible Hate Crime
The DC Metropolitan Police Department said that officers who were called to the Carlson home on Wednesday night found about 20 demonstrators and observed an “anarchy” symbol that had been painted onto the driveway. The police report describes the incident as a “suspected hate crime” on the basis of “anti-political” bias, according to the Associated Press.
Tucker Carlson’s wife, Susan, told police that on Wednesday evening she heard a “loud banging and pounding” on the front door. When she looked through a window, she saw a crowd of people standing in front of her home, chanting loudly. At least one of them was carrying a bull horn. Susan called the police and stayed inside until they arrived.
The protest was organized by Smash Racism DC. The group has since been banned from Twitter, because they gave out Yglesias’s home address.
