Bill O’Reilly Apologizes for Racist Maxine Waters Jab

Fox News host Bill O’Reilly apologized on Tuesday for his racist joke about not being able to pay attention to Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters because he could only focus on her “James Brown wig.” In a statement, O’Reilly wrote: “As I have said many times, I respect Congresswoman Maxine Waters for being sincere in her beliefs. I said that again today on Fox & Friends calling her ‘old school.’ Unfortunately, I also made a jest about her hair which was dumb. I apologize.” He is also expected to address the controversy on his show tonight.
