Bob Beckel has manufactured the image of a big teddy bear, bravely talking-up liberal and moderate views on “The Five,” an otherwise conservative talk show on Fox News.
Instead, it seems that the portly man might be closer to a “wampa beast” from Star Wars.
A racist one.
Fox News’ HR was made aware of a complaint about an incident that a person familiar with the situation called a “racially insensitive remark” on Tuesday.
Fox executives conducted an internal investigation, and decided to fire Beckel on Friday morning.
Allegedly, Beckel became enraged that a black man had been sent to repair an office appliance. The liberal pundit caused a scene and made a remark related to the worker’s color before storming out.
