Fox News has reacted to anchor Kevin Jackson’s Twitter remarks about Brett Kavanaugh’s accusers.
In a rant on the social media site, Jackson described the women who’ve accused the embattled Supreme Court nominee of sexual assault as “lying skanks.”
The news network has responded decisively, terminating Jackson following his offensive tweets.
“His comments on today’s hearings were reprehensible and do not reflect the values of Fox News,” a spokesperson for the network said in a statement.
After Dr. Christine Blasey Ford appeared Thursday morning before the Senate Judiciary Committee to recount her story of sexual assault, Jackson turned to Twitter to attack Ford on her appearance and her credibility.
