Fox News host Bill O’Reilly has apologized after coming under fire for mocking Rep. Maxine Waters’ hair.
His remarks were widely denounced as both racist and sexist across social media.
In a statement Tuesday afternoon, Bill expressed regret for the remarks.
“As I have said many times, I respect Congresswoman Maxine Waters for being sincere in her beliefs,” he said. “I said that again today on Fox & Friends calling her ‘old school.’ Unfortunately, I also made a jest about her hair which was dumb. I apologize.”
Yes. It was dumb.
