A show quietly disappeared from the lineup at Fox News over the weekend after the host came under fire over comments she made on the air.
The AP reports that Jeanine Pirro’s show, “Justice With Judge Jeanine,” which was scheduled to air Saturday night, was replaced by other programming. The report adds that the Fox News schedule for next weekend does not include the show.
While no explanation was given for the show’s disappearance, the development comes after Pirro generated a backlash — and lost advertisers — for her comments questioning U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar over her wearing a Muslim head covering, as we reported previously.
Donald Trump was among those who noticed Pirro’s absence from the Fox News lineup. He tweeted about it Sunday morning, writing: “Stop working soooo hard on being politically correct, which will only bring you down, and continue to fight for our Country. The losers all want what you have, don’t give it to them.”
Fox said Sunday that it would not comment on internal scheduling matters, the AP reports.
