Fox News Host Under Fire for Remarks About Female Colleagues PRNewser
A Fox News host is coming under fire for comments about female colleagues on the network, after he described them as "Victoria's Secret" models who "went to college," reports PRNewser.com.
Brian Kilmeade made the statement on his radio show, when he gave Fox News anchor Alisyn Camerota what the article calls "a rather sexist compliment."
With Camerota making an appearance on Kilmeade’s show, a caller commented: "Well you and all the women of Fox, I don’t know who was the scout that got you guys, but they rock." Camerota laughed off the comment, but then Kilmeade chimed in.
"It was actually, we go into the Victoria’s Secret catalog and we said, ‘Can any of these people talk?’ And they all could and they all went to college," Kilmeade said.
According to the piece, it's not the first time Kilmeade has made offensive comments about women. In June, he caused "Fox and Friends" co-host Gretchen Carlson to walk off the set when he said, "Women are everywhere. … It’s out of control," the piece notes.
"We’re rather disappointed that Alisyn Camerota didn’t have an equally outraged reaction to the implication that talent scouts discovered her splayed half-naked in a lingerie catalog -- and that the small matter of whether she was educated or could even speak was only an afterthought," the article says. "Instead, she simply laughed uncomfortably and told Kilmeade in a playful tone that he was 'crazy.’"
