After numerous allegations of sexual harassment, 21st Century Fox confirmed that Bill O'Reilly is out at Fox News. "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," said 21st Century Fox in a statement.
The news comes after a story in The New York Times revealed the various settlements O'Reilly made with five women who all made sexual harassment claims against him.
The internet quickly reacted to the news. Most people couldn't believe it took Fox this long to finally force O'Reilly out.
FOX News sends a powerful message: a workplace culture of rampant sexual harrassment and aggression will only be tolerated for 2 decades

Very inspiring to see that numerous sexual harassment allegations can hurt a powerful man's career once it's bad for the bottom line.

Others thought it was clear why Fox was finally deciding to act.
O'Reilly isn't being fired for what he did. Fox News has known for years.
He's being fired because they'll lose money.
Now they care.

Please remember Fox News only Fired Bill O'Reilly because they were losing advertising dollars and they're still a soulless garbage network

A producer at MSNBC took the time to remind everyone of what Donald Trump thinks of O'Reilly.

Some people just simply celebrated.
According to Gabriel Sherman, a reporter for New York Magazine, Tucker Carlson will now have O'Reilly's spot.
