Fox News Host Eric Bolling Suspended Amid Lewd Photo Accusations

"Eric Bolling has been suspended pending the results of an investigation, which is now underway", Fox News said in a statement.

The 54-year-old host is now under investigation after HuffPost reported on Friday (August 4) that Eric had sent unsolicited photo of male genitalia to at least two coworkers at Fox Business and one at colleague at Fox News.

Fox News said Saturday that it has suspended Eric Bolling, co-host of its late-afternoon news program "The Specialists", while it investigates allegations he sent a lewd photo to co-workers.

Bolling himself tweeted Monday morning, "Overwhelmed by all the support I have received".

Fox News' late founding CEO Roger Ailes stepped down previous year amid a series of sexual harassment allegations.

A liberal commentator who made hundreds of appearances on Fox and Fox Business from 2008-11, Ms. Heldman referred to "multiple experiences with Bolling that caused grave concern to my friends and family". One woman said that when she replied to Bolling's text and told him never to send her photos like that again, he didn't reply back. In June, he signed a long-term deal with Fox News.




The suspension is the latest in a string of sexual harassment complaints against personalities who appear on Fox News and Fox Business.

The allegations follow a series of sexual harassment scandals involving senior Fox News executives and on-air stars.

A vocal supporter of President Donald Trump, Bolling wrote a March op-ed accusing House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wisconsin, and establishment Republicans of betraying the president with their version of a plan to overhaul the nation's health system.

Mr Bolling denies the allegations, and his attorney Michael Bowe told Huffington Post he "will vigorously pursue his legal remedies for any false and defamatory accusations that are made". She also alleged that Bolling told her he wanted to fly her out to NY for "in-studio hits and to have 'fun'". And if it's Fox, am I to believe that there isn't this issue at MSNBC and CNN?

Eric Bolling attends Fox News' "The Five" on February 26, 2014, in New York City.

"Once, he took me up to his office in NY, showed me his baseball jerseys, and in the brief time I was there, let me know that his office was his favorite place to have sex", Heldman wrote. Attorneys for several employees who have sued Fox News and activists have used the accusations to suggest British regulators not approve the proposed transaction, which remains under government review.
