Eric Bolling and Bill O’Reilly got into an emotional confrontation after O’Reilly suggested that Bolling’s son killed himself because of the untrue sexual allegations against him. “I urge you to think about what you put in your newspaper. Eric Bolling’s son is dead. He’s dead, because of allegations made, in my opinion — and I know this to be true — against Mr. Bolling,” O’Reilly told the New York Times.
However, Bolling did not like his son being talked about in this way. “I believe it is beyond inappropriate for anyone to bring in the death of my son Eric Chase Bolling, just as Bill O’Reilly had wanted to shield his children from the allegations against him. I hope he will honor my request and avoid any future mentions of my son,” said Bolling.
“My parting from Fox News was in no way connected to the tragic news of my son’s passing. The coroner has, in fact, indicated to us that they believe it was an accident. Unlike others who left Fox News amid public allegations and extensive investigations, I parted ways with Fox News in an amicable way and any reference to a firing is flatly wrong. I have been working on new collaborations which I will be announcing in the next few months,” said Bolling.
After hearing Bolling’s criticism, O’Reilly immediately apologized. “Apologies to Eric Bolling and prayers for him and his family. The message I tried to send was that allegations harm kids. Nothing more,” tweeted O’Reilly.
“Thanks Bill, apology accepted,” responded Bolling just 13 minutes later.
