Controversial primetime Fox News host Laura Ingraham’s brother — Curtis Ingraham — has taken to Twitter over the past year or so to express his displeasure with his sister’s conservative, pro-Trump views.
In a recent interview with The Daily Beast, Curtis described his sister as “a monster” and “a racist.”
“I think she’s a monster,” Curtis repeatedly told The Daily Beast.
Curtis uses his Twitter account to voice his frustrations with right-leaning policies and political figures, calling for advertisers to boycott his sister’s show after her controversial comments towards Parkland shooting survivor — and gun-control advocate — David Hogg. Curtis Ingraham also issued an apology on social media to NBA superstar LeBron James after Ingraham told him to “shut up and dribble” in response to his criticism of President Trump.
Curtis said to interviewers that he didn’t always think his relationship with his sister would result in public declarations on Twitter, even though he wholeheartedly disagrees with her political views.
Curtis told The Daily Beast that he and his sister were once “very close,” vacationing together (having spent time together in Washington, D.C.), and shared details about their lives with one another.
Along with addressing some of the outrageous things his sister has said publicly on her show, Curtis also provides some insight into his sister’s upbringing.
Curtis wrote on Twitter that his sister’s racist views extend all the way back to college, where she harassed her black roommate by speaking “jive.”
He also shared that one of his sister’s adopted children once called him a “Dummy-crat.”
Curtis Ingraham also pointed out that the family’s ancestors were Polish immigrants — going on to claim that his sister’s ultra-right wing views were shared by their late father, whom Curtis alleges was a Nazi sympathizer.
Curtis told The Daily Beast that his sister’s personality is “destructive,” and characterized her as generally “extremely angry.”
“She’s very smart, she’s well spoken, but her emotional heart is just kind of dead,” he said. “And you see it in her face when you see her on TV. She’s ready to destroy. She does not listen to understand — she listens to respond. And her response is always an attack.”

Curtis told interviewers that he’d decided to go after his sister on Twitter to express how disappointed he was with her conservative views, as opposed to some deep-seated sibling rivalry or resentment.
“The reason I’m sharing these details is because of what is happening in our country,” Curtis said. “I feel like a bit of a whistle-blower in trying to unveil hypocrisy.”
He added: “Our country has been thrown into this divisive state. So now I feel like I have got to speak out, I’ve got to speak out for my own sanity.”
Editor’s note: Fox News reached out to the Inquisitr with the following statement from Laura Ingraham:
“My siblings and I are shocked and saddened to learn of these false and hurtful online postings. Although we’ve been estranged from him for many years, we love our brother and miss him very much.”
