Recently, The New York Times reported that Fox News host Bill O’Reilly and his parent company, 21st Century Fox have paid out five different women who accused him of sexual harassment. Following the reports, O’Reilly released a statement that among other things said, “The worst part of my job is being a target for those who would harm me and my employer, the Fox News Channel.”
The Wall Street Journal reported that O’Reilly’s contract was recently renewed, and despite the fact that Mercedes-Benz reassigned advertisements intended to be shown during his program, he didn’t mention the controversy tonight.
One person who definitely doesn’t feel sorry for him is Bette Midler. In a tweet tonight she wrote, “Looks like Bill O’Reilly’s next on the scaffold, and I’m popping Champagne!”
She then slammed “Fox watchers” as well, saying they “turn a blind eye to predators” and have “no morality at all.”
