Fox News executive editor John Moody wrote a scathing editorial where he blasted the diversity of the 2018 U.S. Winter Olympics team.
“Unless it’s changed overnight, the motto of the Olympics, since 1894, has been ‘Faster, Higher, Stronger.’ It appears the U.S. Olympic Committee would like to change that to ‘Darker, Gayer, Different. No sport that we are aware of awards points ― or medals ― for skin color or sexual orientation,” he continued. “So, while uncomfortable, the question probably needs to be asked: were our Olympians selected because they’re the best at what they do, or because they’re the best publicity for our current obsession with having one each from Column A, B and C?”
In response to the uproar, Fox News released a statement claiming Moody doesn't represent the network's values.
“John Moody’s column does not reflect the views or values of Fox News and has been removed,” the statement reads.
