IHOP said Tuesday that it would stop advertising on Tucker Carlson Tonight, joining a series of companies in pulling ads after the host’s remark last week about immigrants making America “dirtier.”

“At our core, we stand for welcoming folks from all backgrounds and beliefs into our restaurants and continually evaluate ad placements to ensure they align with our values. In this case, we will no longer be advertising on this show,” a spokesperson said in an email to POLITICO.

Carlson said on his Fox News show last week that some lawmakers tell Americans they have a “moral obligation to admit the world’s poor…even if it makes our own country poorer and dirtier and more divided.”

More than a dozen companies have stopped advertising since, according to various media reports. The first company to pull the plug was Pacific Life, which ran an ad shortly after Carlson’s “dirtier” comment, The Washington Post reported. Others include Bowflex, Indeed and Ancestry.com.
