Recently, the media and television world has been rocked by allegations of sexual harassment against women. Many women have even spoken out against the abuse and called for reform as a nation.
Now, another major name is discussing the role sexual harassment allegations have had on his life. Bill O’Reilly said the experiences he has gone through have been awful for both he and his family.
“It’s horrible what I went through, horrible what my family went through,” O’Reilly told The New York Times.
He also opened up and said the “pain it brings to my children is indescribable. Indescribable,” he told the newspaper. O’Reilly, who left Fox News in April after the Times revealed that he paid $13 million to five women to settle sexual harassment allegations, reported the New York Times.
In recent days, reports have revealed that Bill O’Reilly has paid $32 million in a settlement for a sexual harassment case. The claim reportedly came from the time when he was at Fox News.
Other women are now speaking out against the famous star. One of O’Reilly’s famous co-workers, Megan Kelly, has also revealed her own story about O'Reilly. She said she reported him to the management for his behavior towards women.
