TWENTY-TWO companies pull ads from Bill O’Reilly’s show after TV show host is mired in sexual harassment allegations
Twenty-two companies have pulled their ads from Bill O’Reilly’s show after a report revealed women had accused the Fox News host of sexual harassment, verbal abuse, and inappropriate behavior.
O’Reilly’s show may be taking a financial hit after BMW, Mercedes, Hyundai, Ainsworth, Constant Contact, Sanofi, GlaxoSmithKline, Allstate, Esurance, Untuckit, Mitsubishi, T. Rowe Price, Credit Karma, Coldwell Banker, Lexus, Bayer, Wayfair, Orkin, True Car, MileIQ, The Wonderful Company, and the Society for Human Resources Management all announced they would be removing their ads.
The list is expected to grow, with the Sleeping Giants setting their sights on The O’Reilly’s Factor after the anonymous group first launched a campaign that led Breitbart to lose more than 1,750 advertisers.
The backlash comes after a report in The New York Times revealed O’Reilly and Fox News paid five women $13 million to settle four cases of sexual harassment and one incident of verbal abuse in the past 15 years.
In addition to the five women, Wendy Walsh, a regular on his show, along with Andrea Tantaros, a former Fox News host, also accused the 67-year-old of inappropriate behavior.
The National Organization for Women is now calling for Fox News to fire O’Reilly….
