Laura Ingraham’s estranged gay brother has called the conservative TV host a “monster” on social media for her support of anti-LGBTQ+ legislation and Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Curtis Ingraham was upset by an earlier tweet from his sister yesterday, in which she accused the left of ‘trying to destroy the innocence of children in the name of ‘tolerance”. Her sister’s tweet showed a snippet of a segment called “Doom & Groom” that appeared on her Fox News show, Ingraham’s Angle.
“It’s called a queer inclusive program. It is being secretly deployed without the knowledge of parents by the National Association of Independent Schools,” she claimed in the clip. “The days of just teaching about human reproduction are over. Now, in fifth grade, they are taught sexual expression.
In response, his brother tweeted: “That’s rich coming from my sister who loves Putin and seems okay with children being killed in Ukraine.
He then added: “What a monster!”
It was not the first time Curtis Ingraham called his sister a monsterhaving done so in particular during an interview in 2018 with the daily beast.
“I think she’s a freak,” the disapproving brother said several times at the time, adding, “She’s very smart, she speaks well, but her emotional heart is just kinda dead. And you see that. on her face when you see her on TV. She’s ready to destroy. She doesn’t listen to understand, she listens to respond. And her response is always an attack.
Ingraham claimed that her sister’s acceptance of her sexual identity was a facade, as was her concern for family.
“That’s what I’m trying to expose here, the hypocrisy,” he told the The beast. “’Family first, I know about gay rights, my brother is gay.’ It’s all a sham.
A month earlier, Curtis had tweeted that the siblings “grew up with an abusive, alcoholic father who was a Nazi sympathizer”, before suggesting that his sister might share some of his father’s less desirable traits.
Laura Ingraham then issued a statement to the The beast saying she and her other siblings were “shocked and saddened to learn of these false and hurtful online posts”.
