When former Fox News host Bill O’Reilly was ousted from the network in 2017 amid multiple sexual harassment lawsuits, we were genuinely surprised by one detail involving gay adult films and a $32 million settlement.
That being said, the disgraced ex-host was caught on video over the weekend losing his sh*t at an airline employee, and nothing could feel more on-brand.
In a video obtained by The Daily Mail, O’Reilly can be seen threatening a JetBlue employee over a delayed flight to the Caribbean at JFK International Airport in New York.

While the confrontation isn’t fully audible, O’Reilly tells the employee “You’re three hours late,” before adding, “You’re lucky I don’t put my fist in your [inaudible].” Then he calls the employee a “f*cking scumbag.”
“You’re threatening me with violence, man,” the employee responds.
“No I’m not. You’re going to lose your job,” O’Reilly angrily tells him.
The fellow passenger who recorded the argument told the Mail: “I couldn’t believe how arrogant he was. That poor JetBlue guy just works there, it’s not his fault the flight was delayed, he was just trying to do his job.”

A GOP hero. Like Tucker, they’re so classy. Such an inspiration to see them treat others as Jesus instructed.

I was a Gate Manager for a major airline. When people got like, well, a little worse than this,(arms flailing and screaming)I usually had to have them escorted out of the airport. I stayed calm and was nice for as long as possible then I went off. He deserves a severe talking to!

This is so shocking to me because I was always thought bill would be a super nice person.

Bill O’Reilly would have surprised me if he was nice. He’ not. Cancel Bill O’Reilly again, please.
Queerty is now quoting from right-wing websites like the Daily Mail. I guess that’s progress!
It also seems to be getting a few trolls from the old Yahoo posters. They must really miss that.
An GOF, Grand Old Failure party supporter.
And a pervet like most of the reprobates in the mould of the Orange turd!
wow talk about privilege, more like rich white trash, the worse of trash lol
If O’Reilly is as big as he thinks he is, he could have called the CEO of the airline instead of belittling an employee who has nothing to do with why the flight is delayed. But that a republican for you, they’re not macho unless they’re picking on the innocents.
Why is he taking JetBlue? Isn’t that a “budget” airline for the poors? Getting mad because a JetBlue flight is not on time is pretty ridiculous. Rather than make a fool of yourself, call NetJet and put your entitled rich-ass on a private jet.
What did that Republican monster do with his money? He’s broke and has to fly JetBlue? OMG. What did he do with all the millions that he earned at Fox News? Oh yes…I remember…he had to pay several women millions for sexual assault.
Wait Bill has. to fly a discount airline??????
