“Overwhelmed by all the support I have received. Thank you,” Bolling, the host of “The Fox News Specialists,” told followers on Monday. Fox suspended Bolling after a report surfaced on Friday, alleging that Bolling sent a picture of male genitalia to a Fox News employee and Fox Business staffer.
Fox released the following statement regarding Bolling:
“Eric Bolling has been suspended pending the results of an investigation, which is currently underway.”
Caroline Heldman, a professor who frequently appeared on-air with Bolling, called Bolling’s behavior “wildly inappropriate”:
Heldman also described former Fox News host Bill O’Reilly as “creepy in person.” O’Reilly, like former Fox News CEO Roger Ailes, left the network amid sexual harassment allegations. Bolling is just one of several Fox employees as of recent to be accused of sexual harassment.
