Controversial Fox News talk show host Bill O’Reilly is asking ABC to fire Rosie O’Donnell after Rosie’s latest tirade against the U.S. Military and her comments about the recently captured British soldiers by Iran.
FOX News’ designated flamethrower, Bill O’Reilly, slammed Rosie on “The O’Reilly Factor” last night, calling her “nutty” and “irresponsible,” and suggesting that ABC should fire O’Donnell for her provocative remarks about Iran and the war in Iraq.
Rosie, who was not a guest on O’Reilly’s show, has been anything but gentle in expressing her feelings toward U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East, going so far as to suggest on her blog that the recent kidnapping of British sailors was designed by the U.S. and Britain to help escalate hostilities against Iran. On “The View” this week, Rosie also challenged viewers to Google “Gulf of Tonkin,” a reference to the controversial naval attacks in Southeast Asia that led to the U.S.’s increased involvement in the Vietnam conflict.
Now, O’Reilly is calling for ABC to be “held accountable” for Rosie’s remarks, especially after the network axed Bill Maher post-9/11 for suggesting that the terrorists who attacked the World Trade Center were “courageous.” ABC, for its part, had no comment this morning.
Be sure to vote for Rosie in Bumpshack’s Celebrity March Madness Final Four. Rosie is currently in the Final Four going toe-to-toe with Michael Jackson to see who will advance to compete against Britney Spears in the finals for the title of Hollywood’s Maddest Celebrity.
