Laura Ingraham's estranged gay brother called the conservative television host "a monster" on social media for her support of anti-LGBTQ+ legislation and Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Curtis Ingraham was upset with an earlier tweet by his sister Tuesday in which she accused the left of "trying to destroy children's innocence in the name of 'tolerance.'" The tweet from his sister showed a clip from a segment titled "Doom & Groom" that appeared on her Fox News show, The Ingraham Angle.
"It's dubbed a queer inclusive curriculum. It's being secretly rolled out without parents' knowledge by the National Association of Independent Schools," she claimed in the clip. "Gone are the days when they're just teaching about human reproduction. Now by fifth grade, they're taught about sexual expression."
In response, her brother tweeted, "This is rich coming from my Putin-loving sister who seems okay with children being killed in Ukraine."
He later added, "What a monster!"
\u201cThis is rich coming from my Putin-loving sister who seems okay with children being killed in Ukraine. Looks like she has a new trope in hand to further rile and anger her followers. What a monster! @IngrahamAngle\u201d
"I think she's a monster," the disapproving brother said repeatedly at the time, adding, "She's very smart, she's well spoken, but her emotional heart is just kind of dead. 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."
Ingraham claimed his sister's acceptance of his sexual identity was a facade, as was her concern about family.
"That's what I'm trying to unveil here, the hypocrisy," he told the Beast. "'Family's first, I know about gay rights, my brother is gay.' It's all a sham."
\u201c@nmlynneheart @HuffPost We grew up with an abusive, alcoholic father who was a Nazi sympathizer. Like father like daughter?! This was the familial soil that gave bloom to my sister's anger.\u201d
A month earlier Curtis had tweeted the siblings "grew up with an abusive, alcoholic father who was a Nazi sympathizer," before suggesting his sister might share some of her father's less desirable traits.
Laura Ingraham later released a statement to the Beast saying she and her other siblings were "shocked and saddened to learn of these false and hurtful online postings."
