Jennifer Aniston: Bill O'Reilly Insulted Single Moms So I Had to Speak Out

The Switch star continues her war of words with the Fox newsman, who claimed she was “destructive to our society.”

We’re kind of waiting to see if Bill O’Reilly has something to say this evening in response to Jennifer Aniston‘s comments about him on Good Morning America. Jen got all fired up when the Fox anchor’s name was mentioned in the wake of his televised attack on her and told George Stephanopoulos, “It was just such an unfair statement that he made against me!”

Back on Aug. 11, the king of rants took aim at Jen after she made a comment about her character in The Switch, who chooses to become a single mom, and said that women don’t need a man to have a child. Well, Bill must have forgotten to take his meds that day because he declared that Jen was attacking the hard-working fathers of America and, by advocating single motherhood, she was promoting teenage pregnancy.

“I was actually glorifying 12-year-olds going out there and getting knocked up and doing it by themselves because that’s what I preach,” Jen said sarcastically on GMA this morning. The 41-year-old, who admitted that she normally doesn’t respond to her critics, said she had to hit back at Bill, because, “I just felt it was begging for a response.”

“People say things about me all the time and you go, ‘Oh whatever,'” said Jen, who admitted she was raised by her single mom. “But this was just not about me, it was also insulting women who are out there doing this on their own.”
