Twitter Eviscerates Bill O'Reilly After Fox Gives Him the Boot

Twitter Eviscerates Bill O’Reilly After Fox Gives Him the Boot

Now that Fox News has caved in to pressure from advertisers and actually canned Bill O’Reilly because of his multiple sexual harassment lawsuits, the internet is having a feeding frenzy.

It’s party time for his haters. Especially on Twitter, notes Raw Story. 

And really, it couldn’t happen to a nicer guy.

Fox News’s parent company, 21st Century Fox released a rather terse statement regarding O’Reilly’s firing:

“After a thorough and careful review of the allegations, the Company and Bill O’Reilly have agreed that Bill O’Reilly will not be returning to the Fox News channel.”

As my colleague Mark Howard notes, the story begins three weeks ago, when The New York Times published a report that detailed attempts by O’Reilly and the network to cover up allegations of his sexual misconduct. It’s been disclosed that several women were paid large sums of money for their silence.

And earlier this week attorney Lisa Bloom reported the case of another woman who has allegedly been harassed by O’Reilly. Bloom said that the woman, who is African-American, told her that he would leer at her and call her “hot chocolate.”

Even though the woman worked for a different broadcaster, O’Reilly’s office was near hers at the time when the alleged harassment occurred.

“He would never talk to her, not even hello, except to grunt at her like a wild boar,” Bloom told The Hollywood Reporter. “He would leer at her. He would always do this when no one else was around and she was scared.”

Bloom spoke with three witnesses who knew the woman at the time, and each confirmed that she was upset at the end of the work day.

“She’s not asking for any money,” Bloom said. “She just wants them to know her story.”

Bill O’Reilly made a lot of women suffer, and frankly he deserves to be roasted to a crisp on Twitter. 

The O’Reilly Factor will mosey off into the sunset on Monday, and Tucker Carlson will be set to fill that time spot. And that means with Megyn Kelly and O’Reilly gone, Fox News will have to get someone else to complain about the “war on Christmas.”
