After 21 years of being the host on FOX News' show The O'Reilly Factor, journalist William James "Bill" O'Reilly Jr . was let go by the company for sexual harassment allegations.
On April 19, 21st Century Fox issued the following statement: "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."
O'Reilly, who hosted his own political commentary show from 1996 to 2017, was accused of sexual harassment by several women who worked for him or appeared on his show. In 2017, the company reached a settlement of over $13 million with five of the women who made complaints. O'Reilly was let go of the company while he was on vacation.
“We did a thorough investigation, a thorough review, and we reached a conclusion. Everything that we said in our statement is all you need to know," said James Murdoch, CEO of 21st Century Fox, reports The New York Times.
Meanwhile, people on the internet are reacting to O'Reilly's determination for finally getting what he deserves. New York-based musician and gif-maker Christopher Price, for example, dropped a lo-fi track of Bill saying his name over and over again and somehow turned it into Smash Mouth's 1999 one-hit wonder All Star.
"Watch this synth wizard concoct a lo-fi track and let the chill flow over you," he posted on Twitter.
