Fox News fired contributor Kevin Jackson for his offensive tweets about Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, who testified today at a hearing of the Senate Judiciary Committee regarding Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

A Fox News spokesperson told iMediaEthics, “Kevin Jackson has been terminated as a contributor. His comments on today’s hearings were reprehensible and do not reflect the values of FOX News.” iMediaEthics is tweeting Jackson for his response.

His tweets include that “feminists are their own worst enemies, and enemy of women” and “want men to NEVER be believed.” He called the three women who have accused Kavanaugh “lying skanks.”

He also wrote of Ford’s testimony, “This nonsense stinks to low HELL and has #Democrat fingerprints all over it” and added, “FBI please investigate SEX PARTIES at #ChristineBlaseyFord house.”
