BILL O’REILLY LAUGHED AT MAN BEING DRAGGED OFF UNITED AIRLINES FLIGHT

By now, you’ve probably heard of the United Airlines passenger who was dragged off a plane after the flight was oversold.

On Sunday, multiple passengers on the Chicago-to-Louisville flight recorded footage of a man being forcibly removed from his seat. The man screams as he’s physically pulled and lifted into the aisle by security officers. There is blood visibly coming out of his mouth as the officers drag him up the aisle.

Fox News host Bill O’Reilly, reporting about the situation on his show The O’Reilly Factor, seemed to find the incident humourous.

“I shouldn’t be laughing, but it’s just so bizarre,” O’Reilly, 67, said after watching the video.

His callous reaction comes after last weekend’s New York Times report that O’Reilly and his employer paid five women $13 million to settle harassment or other allegations of inappropriate conduct.

As a result of the report, at least 75 companies pulled their advertisements from O’Reilly’s Fox News show, including BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Allstate and Credit Karma, among many other notable brands.
