By now you’ve probably seen or at least heard about the St. Louis couple that emerged from their home with guns to confront protesters who were walking down the private street. Mark McCloskey spoke out Tuesday night in an interview with Fox News’ Tucker Carlson.

McCloskey, joined by his attorney Albert Watkins, told Carlson he and his wife were having dinner when they saw “a flood of people” marching down the street.

“They’re angry, they’re screaming, they’ve got spittle coming out of their mouth, and they’re coming toward the house,” he said, recalling recent rioting in the area. “When I saw that mob come through the gate with their rage and their anger, I thought that we would be overrun in a second. By the time I was out there with my rifle, the people were 20 or 30 feet from my front wall.”

McCloskey told Carlson he was “literally afraid that within seconds they would surmont the wall come into the house, kill us, burn the house down and everything that I had worked for and struggled for for the last 32 years.”

Carlson asked him to respond to the “attacks” he’s gotten “for doing what we used to believe every homeowner had an obligation to do.”

“Why are they denouncing you as a racist?” he asked.

“I’ve spent my career defending people that are defenseless,” McCloskey responded. “For people that are having a hard time making their miracle happen, for people that don’t have a voice. My black clients love us. The night that this happened, I had some of our black clients calling us up till 2:30 in the morning telling us how wrong it was the way the the press writing us up.”

He told Carlson, “To call us racist is ridiculous and it had nothing to do with race. I wasn’t worried what the race was of the mob that came through my gate, I was worried that I was going to be killed. I didn’t care what race they were.”

“Thank you ABC and the entire Dancing With the Stars family for 6 memorable seasons,” the sportscaster, 42, said in a statement via Twitter on Tuesday, July 14. “Those years wouldn’t have been as special without my loving host Tom Bergeron, the talented dancers, and witty judges.”

Andrews said she “will always cherish” her time on the set of the ABC dance competition — “even if I wasn’t the best at walking in heels.”

“Tom Bergeron will forever be part of the Dancing With the Stars family. As we embark on a new creative direction, he departs the show with our sincerest thanks and gratitude for his trademark wit and charm that helped make this show a success,” the producers said in a statement. “Erin will also not be returning, and we appreciate all that she brought to the ballroom. Fans have been rooting for her since she originally competed as a contestant back in 2010, and her signature sense of humor has become a hallmark of the show.”

The former America’s Funniest Home Videos host also shared the news via Twitter, writing on Monday night, “Just informed @DancingABC will be continuing without me. It’s been an incredible 15 year run and the most unexpected gift of my career. I’m grateful for that and for the lifelong friendships made.”

He then joked, “Now what am I supposed to do with all of these glitter masks?”

Bergeron had hosted the series since its premiere in June 2005, while Andrews took on her role in March 2014 after finishing in third place as a competitor on season 10 with pro dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy.

The former Hollywood Squares host was openly critical of DWTS in recent years. Perhaps most notably, he tweeted in August 2019 that he disagreed with producers’ decision to cast President Donald Trump’s former White House press secretary Sean Spicer on the 28th and most recent season.
