Former longtime Online News 72h host Monthly bill O’Reilly was caught on online video lashing out at an airline employee on Sunday just after a delayed flight to the Caribbean.
The conservative commentator can be read in the video asking a JetBlue personnel to obtain out why his flight from New York to the Turks and Caicos is “3 hrs late now.” Seconds afterwards, following a hardly audible back again and forth, O’Reilly phone calls the personnel a “f***ing scumbag” and tells him, “You happen to be likely to get rid of your position.” The JetBlue agent is heard in the movie accusing O’Reilly of threatening him with violence.

“The character assassins on social media absolutely lying about my conversation with a JetBlue dude who misled passengers all through a five-hour delay,” O’Reilly reported on Twitter, immediately after the movie surfaced on Tuesday.
The 72-12 months-previous previous host of The O’Reilly Element told a news outlet on Tuesday that he handled the circumstance “poorly” but did not apologize to the employee, reiterating that the JetBlue flight was delayed for several hours without the need of rationalization, major to aggravation. He also accused JetBlue of fraudulent conduct, professing the airline is selling tickets to flights that the corporation understands cannot get there on routine.
