Fox News host Eric Bolling has been suspended from the network after an explosive report accused of him sending dick pics to colleagues. A Fox spokesperson told Heavy.com, “Eric Bolling has been suspended pending the results of an investigation, which is currently underway.” The Huffington Post’s Yashar Ali, who wrote the initial article on Bolling, tweeted that the investigation into Bolling’s alleged actions is being led by lawfirm Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison.
On August 4, the Huffington Post reported that Bolling was being accused of sending unsolicited dick pics to female Fox News employees. A Fox News spokesperson had earlier told Heavy.com, “We were just informed of this late Friday afternoon via a Huff Post inquiry and plan to investigate the matter.”
NPR’s David Folkenflik quoted Bolling’s attorney saying, “No such unsolicited communications occurred.”
The Huff Po report reads, “One of the recipients said that when she replied to Bolling via text, telling him never to send her such photos again, he did not respond. Four people, outside of the recipients, confirmed to HuffPost they’d seen the photo, and eight others said the recipients had spoken to them about it.”
