Fox’s Bolling Apologizes a Second Time for ‘Wholly Inappropriate’ Boob Remark

Fox News’ Eric Bolling got in hot water this week for a joke he made about the UAE’s first female pilot (who’s leading that nation in this week’s airstrikes on Syria). Bolling said, “Would that be considered boobs on the ground?” Bolling apologized yesterday, but today said it was insufficient and apologized again.

Bolling did not address the pilot herself in his apology yesterday, but did so today. He said Fox has received plenty of angry letters, including from women in the military, about the joke. Bolling acknowledged again it was “wholly inappropriate” and not intended as disparaging.

Bolling said she “deserves our praise, not inappropriate jokes,” and concluded by saying, “She has my admiration, and my very, very sincere regret.”
