Take Fox News Talkinghead Off Air For Racist Remark

Target: Rupert Murdoch, CEO of Fox News

Goal: Remove Bill O’Reilly from the air after he made racist remarks about Representative Maxine Waters.

Fox News political commentator Bill O’Reilly made blatantly racist remarks about an accomplished female congresswoman. While Representative Maxine Waters spoke out against the bigotry of Donald Trump and his supporters, O’Reilly said he could not hear anything she said because he was “looking at [her] James Brown wig.”

O’Reilly has often expressed inflammatory racist and sexist remarks. In his recent statements about Representative Waters, he has shown that he has no remorse for his past remarks. He not only dismissed a woman’s words and instead commented on her appearance, but he did so in a way that utilized racial stereotypes.

It is time that O’Reilly be held accountable for his actions. Such racist and misogynistic language has no place on television in 2017. While other reporters have been fired for simply stating the truth, O’Reilly has been given a powerful platform to spew bigotry, racism, and hate. Sign the petition and demand that he be removed from the air.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Murdoch,

After accusations of sexual assault and domestic violence and only several weeks after verbally attacking a fellow female reporter, Bill O’Reilly has once again cast a shadow on Fox News by making a blatantly racist remark while appearing on Fox & Friends. Instead of commenting on Representative Maxine Waters’s thoughtful remarks, he commented upon her hair and called it a “James Brown wig.”

O’Reilly has long used his program as a means of spewing racist and sexist remarks. However, he must realize that his words matter. He should not be given a platform on which he can attack fellow Americans for their appearance, race, gender, or any other aspect of their identity. His racist and sexist remark shows that he doesn’t have the ability to hold an intelligent, stimulating, and meaningful conversation that the public deserves. Instead, he relies on harmful racial stereotypes to belittle others. I demand that he be removed from the air.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. This one is just another freaking incredible petition by a butthurt liberal butting his or her nose into something that doesn’t concern him or her. And so far a hundred and eighty nine incredibly ignorant people have signed. Did any of you watch the video? Apparently not! Geez!

  2. I agree with Frank. This woman is a Racial Bully and a Racial Arsonist. You live by the sword and you die by the sword.

    She calls every white person she doesn’t like a “Racist.” Look how fragile she is. She can dish out the hatred but SHE CAN’T TAKE ANY HATRED. Too bad. I’m welling with tears.

    She’s a friggin rotten, hateful snowflake piece of dung.
