ERIC BOLLING HAS BEEN SUSPENDED FROM FOX NEWS FOLLOWING SEXUAL HARASSMENT ALLEGATIONS

Yashar Ali, the author of the Huffington Post article that scooped the Eric Bolling sexual harassment allegations, has confirmed, via Twitter that Mr. Bolling is suspended by Fox News with an investigation now being pursued by major New York City law firm Paul Weiss.

This development follows Eric Bolling being accused of sending unsolicited photos of his genitals to employees of Fox News.

Mr. Bolling, a former professional Baseball player turned investor turned Fox News analyst is accused of sending unsolicited photos of genitals to at least two professional colleagues according to the Huffington Post.

Recipients of the photo confirmed its contents to HuffPost, which is not revealing their identities. The women, who are Bolling’s current and former Fox colleagues, concluded the message was from him because they recognized his number from previous work-related and informal interactions…

The women did not solicit the messages, which they told colleagues were deeply upsetting and offensive. One of the recipients said that when she replied to Bolling via text, telling him never to send her such photos again, he did not respond. Four people, outside of the recipients, confirmed to HuffPost they’d seen the photo, and eight others said the recipients had spoken to them about it.”

Fox has been rocked by allegations of sexual harassment for more than a year. Roger Ailes, the former CEO of Fox, was fired following numerous allegations that he had sexually mistreated women while managing the network. Bill O’Reilly, a long term main stay of the channel was recently fired following new allegations of sexual harassment. Mr. O’Reilly had been accused of sexual harassment in the past as well.
