Judge Andrew Napolitano was fired by Fox News after allegations of sexual harassment

After several complaints of sexual harassment against Judge Andrew Napolitano, Fox News cut ties with him. There were also complaints from male staff.

Andrew Napolitano is a former Jersey High Court judge turned legal analyst. He is popularly known as a Fox News anchor. The news was announced by authorities Monday in response to a separate lawsuit. This comprised of Business Network host Larry Kudlow and associate producer John Fawcett.

Previously, accusations of making sexist and racist comments were made against Larry. While John accused Andrew of sexual harassment when he met him in an elevator. Here, Andrew stroked Fawcett’s arm and made some sexually suggestive comments.

According to Fawcett’s Complaint, he along with others had reported to Fox News’ human resources department several times, but “no action was taken against Judge Napolitano, Fox allowed him to appear on the air regularly.”

The official complaint filed against Andrew says he “has sexually harassed young male employees during his tenure at Fox News.”
