Late-night host Stephen Colbert on Thursday condemned the group associated with left-wing antifa activists that surrounded Fox News host Tucker Carlson's home the previous night.

"Fighting Tucker Carlson’s ideas is an American right. Targeting his home and terrorizing his family is an act of monstrous cowardice," Colbert tweeted Thursday.

"Obviously don’t do this, but also, take no pleasure in it happening," Colbert added. "Feeding monsters just makes more monsters."

Smash Racism DC, a Twitter account that associates itself with antifa, tweeted Wednesday that activists were protesting Carlson at his home.

In the since-deleted tweet, Smash Racism DC included video of the group at Carlson's home with a caption that included, "Tucker Carlson, we will fight! We know where you sleep at night!"

Another now-deleted tweet from the account read, "Every night you spread fear into our homes—fear of the other, fear of us, and fear of them. Each night you tell us we are not safe."

"Tonight you’re reminded that we have a voice," it continued. "Tonight, we remind you that you are not safe either."

The group reportedly did not enter the house but did break Carlson's door, according to USA Today.

Carlson's wife was reportedly home alone when the activists began chanting and banging on the door, leading her to call the police and lock herself in a pantry for safety.

Fox News's President Jay Wallace and CEO Suzanne Scott issued a joint statement condemning the group's actions.

"The incident that took place at Tucker’s home last night was reprehensible," they wrote. "The violent threats and intimidation tactics toward him and his family are completely unacceptable."

"We as a nation have become far too intolerant of different points of view," they added. "Recent events across our country clearly highlight the need for a more civil, respectful, and inclusive national conversation."

"Those of us in the media and in politics bear a special obligation to all Americans, to find common ground.”
