More than 50 sponsors have withdrawn ads from Mr O'Reilly's show.

More than 50 sponsors have withdrawn ads from Mr O’Reilly’s show.

BBC – Presenter Bill O’Reilly has been dropped from Fox News over sexual harassment claims, the company said in a one-sentence statement on Wednesday.

“After a thorough and careful review of the allegations…Bill O’Reilly will not be returning” the network said.

Mr O’Reilly has been on holiday since 12 April, and was photographed shaking hands with Pope Francis at the Vatican earlier on Wednesday.

More than 50 sponsors have withdrawn ads from his show, The O’Reilly Factor.

Pressure on Fox has mounted since recent reports that five women received $13m in payouts because of Mr O’Reilly.

The presenter, who has been with the US network almost since its inception, has denied all of the allegations.

The decision comes after an emergency meeting of the 21st Century Fox board, New York Magazine reported.

Fox broadcaster Tucker Carlson will be taking over Mr O’Reilly’s 20:00 time slot, the company said in a follow-up statement.

    O'Reilly, right wing racist piece of sh*t. Thought he was untouchable. Shaking hands with the Pope? Don't make me laugh.
    Don't worry, plenty more O'Reillys lining up to take the job and continue the Trump propaganda and racist MF shit.

  3. Here is a lesson for the SLG. What is Senator Ubaldus Raymond still doing in this position? Only in St Lucia can such behaviour at this level be tolerated. ..Wake up St Lucia !

    • If we are going to compare these two scenarios then let us ask these questions:

      -Did the girls in the Ubaldus case admit to a crime being committed against them?
      -Were they sexually harassed by the minister and if so did they make a report?
      -Were any sexual advances made towards them without their consent?
      -Were they touched inappropriately?
      -Were lewd and comments of a sexual nature said to them and did they express their disgust?
      Can you prove that there were unwilling participants in this affair?

      • Whatever. just like those men in St lucia u excusing the bad behaviour. Ubaldus is a grown ass man trying to make it with young women. there is a big difference in their experiences and the law would have taken that into account when it comes to shit like Ubaldus if we were in a different country which is more developed and less backward when it comes to such things. We are so used to doing the african thing of young women with older men which spread nuff aids by the way because these old things have gone around the block and then pass it on to young women. so we dont see how the power dynamics work in such relationships unlike more educated cultures. we backward.

    • You cannot be that dense. How are the two situations comparable? The minister engaged in inappropriate behavior, true. But there was nothing of the sort in terms of sexual harassment. Some of you are too quick to bash thoughtlessly.

  4. But Ubaldus cannot resign yet. Add one more reason to the long list of reasosns why we're a third world country.

    • Stop using the word third world country. We no longer use this terms to describe countries or nations . Its called developing countries or developing nations. This word third world country is depreciate. Meaning no longer used or being phased out. St. Lucia is not a third world country but a developing nation or developing country. Please learn that my people..

  5. So....he's not bigger than the job after all....

  6. Nice, it took almost of their sponsors/advertisers to drop Fox so don't come with that "thorough review" BS. It was and always wil be about the money
