Brian Kilmeade, a Fox News anchor, has come under fire for saying the network sources his female colleagues by flipping through a Victoria’s Secret catalog and making sure “they went to college.”
Speaking on his radio show a guest caller complemented Fox News anchor Alisyn Camerota. She joins Kilmeade on his radio show and typically fills in for "Fox & Friends" host Gretchen Carlson.
The caller said, “I don't know who was the scout that got you guys, but they rock.”
Kilmeade responded by saying “It was actually - we go to the Victoria's Secret catalog and we said, "Can any of these people talk?" And they all could and they all went to college.”
Camerota said, “You're so crazy, Brian. Thank you very much, that's very sweet.”
However, exterior comments on Kilmeade’s explanation have not been so benign. Listeners on Twitter responded angrily.
One tweeter said, “They should rename the [Fox & Friends] Dumb, Dumber, and Dumbest show” another said “What an ass.”
This is not the first times that Kilmeade has angered people with his sexist comments. His comments once led to Gretchen Carlson storming off set. He had said, “Women are everywhere. We’re letting them play golf and tennis now.”
As she walked of the set of “Fox & Friends” she said, “Know what? You read the headlines, since men are so great. Go ahead.”
Carlson later returned to the set saying she was joking and Kilmeade managed to end the set by saying he was “pretty much not sexist.”
