A left-wing mob styling itself “Smash Racism DC” showed up at the home of Fox News host Tucker Carlson’s Wednesday evening, demanded that he leave the city of Washington, D.C., and subsequently doxed him.

Carlson, a co-founder of The Daily Caller and host of “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” was at the Fox News studio when the angry crowd appeared.

One of the protesters went all the way up to Carlson’s front door and left a sign with his family’s home address written on it and rang his doorbell.

Video of the group posted to Twitter shows one of the mob’s ringleaders leading the crowd in chants of “Racist scumbag, leave town!” and “Tucker Carlson, we will fight! We know where you sleep at night!”

“No borders! No walls! No USA at all!” the protesters chanted in another video posted to Twitter.

The group posted a picture of the sign with the Carlson family’s address on it to Twitter. (RELATED: GOP Office Set On Fire Less Than Two Days After Opening)

“Tucker Carlson, you cannot hide from the people you hurt with your rhetoric, your lies, and your hate,” the group wrote on Twitter, adding the hashtag “#KnockKnockTucker.”

Twitter removed the videos and tweet with Carlson’s address Wednesday night after an inquiry from The Daily Caller News Foundation. The left-wing group’s Twitter account was suspended shortly after midnight.

NBC’s Megyn Kelly denounced the mob tactics towards Carlson.

“This has to stop. Who are we? What are we becoming? @TuckerCarlson is tough & can handle a lot, but he does not deserve this,” Kelly, a former Fox News host, wrote on Twitter.

“His family does not deserve this. It’s stomach-turning,” Kelly added.

“Smash Racism DC” previously chased Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz and his wife out of a restaurant during Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings.

The group later posted a message warning Cruz that he’s “not safe.”

This article has been updated to note Twitter’s deletion of the group’s tweets and suspension of its Twitter account.
