'Lying Skanks': Fox News Contributor Fired for Sexist Slurs Against Kavanaugh's Accusers

Kevin Jackson, a Black Fox News contributor, was fired for his Twitter comments during the hearings about the women who accused Kavanaugh of assault and misconduct.

“#ChristineBlaseyFord academic problems came from her PROMISCUITY!” he wrote on Twitter during the Senate appearance. “Dang girl stop opening your legs and OPEN A BOOK!”


He continued with more vulgar and insulting comments directed at Ford, the accusers as a group and feminists:

Jackson has been a contributor on Fox for several years, as well as a radio host on KJRadio and the author of “Race Pimping: The Multi-Trillion Dollar Business of Liberalism.”

He has said that Americans are less interested in race than they are in character. He is a former management consultant whose clients have included Hitachi and Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC), according to his LinkedIn profile.

He was raised by his grandparents, staunch Democrats, yet touts his turn to becoming a
self-appointed “Offender of the Left” on a speech from Ronald Reagan he heard as a child. He believes the destruction of the Black community is because of Democrats.

He was fired by the network late Thursday and the statement said: “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.”

He responded to his firing on Twitter:

Fox News’ executive suite has recently become majority female. Fox News CEO is Suzanne Scott, and the chief finance officer, ad sales and public relations chiefs are also all women.
