Fox News fired The Five co-host Bob Beckel again, this time “for making an insensitive remark to an African American employee.”
Beckel reportedly “stormed out of his office when a black IT worker came to service his computer” at Fox News. The employee’s lawyer said Beckel told his client that he was leaving his office because he is black.
“To make matters worse, after our client lodged a complaint about Mr. Beckel’s racist behavior, Mr. Beckel, in front of Chief Human Resource Officer Kevin Lord, attempted to intimidate our client and persuade him to withdraw his complaint,” Variety reports.
“The lawyer alleges that Fox leaked the story and fired Beckel to get ahead of the complaint.”
