Bob Beckel used to be a panelist on the FOX News show The Five. A few weeks ago, the network fired him but the details were a little sketchy.
Now lawyers involved with the case are explaining what happened.
The Daily Caller reports:
Lawyers Provide Story Of Bob Beckel Firing
Fox News announced Friday that they fired “The Five” co-host Bob Beckel for “insensitive remarks” and now lawyers representing the offended employee are offering the full story.
“Bob Beckel was terminated today for making an insensitive remark to an African-American employee,” Fox originally said of the termination.
However, Attorneys Douglas H. Wigdor and Jeanne Christensen, who are representing the employee, are angry that the network chose not to share what they say is the full story, reports Law Newz.
“Mr. Beckel stormed out of his office when our client, a Black IT employee came to service his computer, telling our client that he was leaving his office because he is Black,” the attorneys said in a statement.
The lawyers also allege that when their client went to complain about the incident to Human Resource Officer Kevin Lord, Lord tried to intimidate him into silence.
Most FOX News fans probably aren’t too upset about the loss of Beckel on the network. He was very anti-Trump and regularly denigrated the President.
