T.C. Carson’s departure from “Living Single” caused speculation.

“Living Single” was a certified hit for Fox years ago. The sitcom instantly became a fan favorite with an all-black cast. Queen Latifah, Kim Coles, Kim Fields, Erika Alexander, John Henton, and T.C. Carson all played lovable characters. Most importantly, they were relatable. And for five seasons, viewers tuned in to see the strong bonds and relationships between the characters. However, Carson’s Kyle Barker would be removed from the show before its run on the network ended in 1998.

Back then, there were plenty of rumors about why Carson was booted from the show.

And recently, he addressed his departure in an interview.

T.C. Carson may have upset those in power.

According to Carson, he was fired because the network executives took issue with him.

During an interview with Fox Soul’s The Tammi Mac Late Show, he said, “I got fired from ‘Living Single.’ because I think they thought my mouth was too big. There were a lot of things that we had issues with, not a lot of things. But there were things we had issues with. And when we would bring them to the network or to the powers that be, I was the spokesperson.”

He added, “And when they think you have the ear of your people, they cut the ear off.”

In another interview, Carson revealed the moment he found out he was somewhat “blackballed.”

    Yep. This is typically what they do when black people call them out.

    ‘Living Single’ was a great show! The cast made a great show. I never knew that TC had gotten fired and essentially for the dame reason Monique did but no one believed her. I do find it interesting that he was the spokesperson for the entire cast but what happened to their voices🤨? So he stepped into the lions den with no sword&shield?

    I guess you aren’t suppose to speak up when things aren’t right. Just let people 💩 all over you!! I don’t think so.. I’m glad he spoke up even if he lost his job behind it. God has some better for him. Keep your head up and look to the One who Blesses you!!
