Celebrities took to Twitter to react to Bill O’Reilly getting fired by Fox News.
O’Reilly worked at the cable news network for 21 years and was considered one of the faces of the network. He was let go Wednesday afternoon in light of numerous sexual harassment allegations.
“After a thorough and careful review of the allegations, the Company and Bill O’Reilly have agreed that Bill O’Reilly will not be returning to the Fox News Channel,” Fox News parent company 21st Century Fox said in a statement.
As host of “The O’Reilly Factor,” O’Reilly often made polarizing comments on race, religion, women, and other hot button topics.

Trump’s executive order signed on Friday, barring admission of refugees from seven Muslim-majority countries, gives the ad an unexpected extra layer of context and commentary. Several conservative commentators and politicians reacted on Twitter by calling it “heavy-handed” and claiming that it has left “Americans speechless.” The controversy sparked the Twitter hashtag #BoycottBudweiser.
