On Monday, Fox News host Eric Bolling responded on Twitter to the Huffington Post accusations that claim he sent obscene pictures to a least three female coworkers at Fox News and Fox News Business.
“Overwhelmed by all the support I have received,” posted on Twitter.
“Thank you I look forward to clearing my name asap,” Bolling also wrote.
Following the revelation by Huffington Post, 14 former and current Fox News employees backed up the allegations. Furthermore, a past guest on Fox News charged Bolling with comparable offenses.
In a statement, Bolling’s lawyer announced that he would sue in response to the fake allegations. However, he did not specify exactly which parts were inaccurate.
“Mr. Bolling recalls no such inappropriate communications,” the statement read, “does not believe he sent any such communications, and will vigorously pursue his legal remedies for any false and defamatory accusations that are made.”
Fox News suspended Bolling while the network investigates the accusations.
Caroline Heldman, an associate professor at Occidental College, wrote on Facebook that Bolling was acting inappropriately when they met.
“Bolling would also contact me via phone and text after shows,” Heldman wrote, “sometimes to apologize for his behavior (and then do it again), and sometimes just to talk. He said he wanted to fly me out to New York for in-studio hits and to have ‘fun.’ He asked me to have meals with him on several occasions, but I found excuses not to go.”
“Once, he took me up to his office in New York,” she added, “showed me his baseball jerseys, and in the brief time I was there, let me know that his office was his favorite place to have sex. I know other women have had similar experiences with Bolling, which means that lots of folks at Fox knew about his behavior well before 2017.”
On Monday, Bolling was absent from his usual position on “The Specialists.”
