New York, April 20 (RHC)-- The longtime Fox News star Bill O’Reilly is out, after more than a half-dozen women accused him of sexual harassment. His departure follows the similar ouster of longtime powerful Fox News CEO Roger Ailes, who was also forced out last summer after more than 20 women accused him of sexual harassment.
Over 50 advertisers had boycotted "The O’Reilly Factor" over revelations O’Reilly and Fox paid $13 million to settle lawsuits by five women who accuse O’Reilly of sexual harassment and inappropriate sexual behavior.
A sixth woman, Dr. Wendy Walsh, has also accused O’Reilly of harassing her and then retaliating against her professionally when she refused to have sex with him. On Tuesday, a seventh woman, who remains anonymous, accused O’Reilly of harassing her for months with sexually and racially offensive comments and actions. O’Reilly has called the claims unfounded.
Earlier this week, protesters gathered outside News Corp.'s headquarters, handing out flyers reading "Danger: Sexual Predator Works Here" and packets of hot chocolate, a reference to the allegation that O'Reilly harassed an African-American clerical worker by calling her "hot chocolate."
