Fox Commentator Eric Bolling Suspended For Alleged Sexual Harassment


NEW YORK (CelebrityAccess) — Another Fox News personality has been suspended from the cable channel amidst allegations of sexual harassment of female colleagues.

According to a report in the Huffington Post, Bolling, 54, allegedly texted a photo of male genitalia to two colleagues at the Fox Business Network, and one co-worker at Fox News. While HuffPost report did not identify the recipients of the email, it said that some were still employed by Fox. The messages were sent several years ago and were unsolicited, it said.

On Saturday, Fox released a statement that they had suspended Bolling “pending the results of an investigation, which is currently underway.” The law firm Paul Weiss, which has conducted previous sexual harassment investigations for Fox, is leading the inquiry, the broadcaster said.

Bolling serves as a co-host of the weekday Fox program The Specialists and was formerly a co-host of The Five. In a statement released via social media on Monday, Bolling expressed his gratitude for "all the support" has received and stated that he looks "forward to clearing his name ASAP."

Sexual harassment allegations are becoming a familiar tune at Fox News. Last summer, co-founder and then-chairman Roger Ailes was ousted over alleged sexual harassment of co-workers, as was Bill O'Reilly, one of the public faces of Fox News since its inception.
