In the wake of the news that Gretchen Carlson filed a sexual harassment lawsuit against CEO Roger Ailes, a new supercut of ‘Fox & Friends’ shows just how often the journalist had to endure comments about her ‘hot’ looks! See the creepy video, here.
Fox News is under fire after Gretchen Carlson, 50, filed a severe sexual harassment lawsuit against CEO Roger Ailes, 76. A new supercut of her show Fox and Friends released July 7 proves that Gretchen’s appearance was as much of a topic as the news she was reporting. Watch the shocking clip, featuring Steve Doocy, 59, who she also noted as being inappropriate with her, right here.
Footage compiled of Gretchen’s reel from Fox & Friends, thanks to Bloomberg Politics, highlights how her male co-hosts constantly addressed her appearance and clothing choices. “Gorgeous, gorgeous! Look at her today. Beautiful dress. You look wonderful,” Eric Bolling, 53, brings up nonchalantly, while Brian Kilmeade, 52, is shown talking about whether the show is too hot before saying: “But Gretchen is really too hot. Blame her!” The co-hosts couldn’t seem to help themselves from discussing Gretchen’s skirts over a plethora of jump cuts.
The most cringe worthy moment comes when Gretchen asks Brian to re-address a statement he made about men being “dominant.” He retorted with “Oh, we don’t have any time,” to which she responds with “Okay, ’cause HR is on the phone because you called me a skirt.”
Gretchen’s comment likely made Brian a little uncomfortable as he got red, before joking that he needs to “read that manual again.” She certainly didn’t take his words kindly, sarcastically letting him know: “I’ll bring it to your office right after the show.” Although she tries to exude professionalism and laughs, Gretchen’s discomfort is pretty apparent throughout the various scenarios.
Gretchen’s new explosive 8-page lawsuit claims she was wrongfully terminated from the network after 11 years of dedication and hard-work for repeatedly denying Roger’s sexual advances. She also reported Steve for his alleged “pervasive sexual harassment.” (He asked her whether she prefers a male or female masseuse in the clip). Fox News has since responded with disdain. “Gretchen’s allegations are false,” says Roger in a statement to HollywoodLife.com. “This is a retaliatory suit for the network’s decision not to renew her contract, which was due to the fact that her disappointingly low ratings were dragging down the afternoon lineup.”
