Bill O'Reilly Once Again Lets His Temper Get The Best Of Him

Former Fox News host, Bill O'Reilly, doesn't have the best reputation. In 2017, The New York Times reported that he and Fox had paid approximately $13 million in harassment settlements to women he used to work with at the network. Despite that, he continued to have a booming career and great success on his show "The O'Reilly Factor." The controversial host's reign ran for more than 15 years, and some speculated that his popularity helped keep him on air despite the scandals.

However, the company decided to let him go later that year (via The Hollywood Reporter). Although he is no longer a fixture on TV, O'Reilly continues to draw attention from the media for his outbursts. He publicly lashed out at Fox News after the January 6th Capitol riot during an interview and has spoken in support of former President Donald Trump, who he thinks should run again.

Now, O'Reilly is back in the tabloids for a recent outburst he had in public.

Bill O'Reilly lashed out on camera over a delayed flight

Bill O'Reilly's name is back in the headlines following an explosive public outburst. According to the Daily Mail, the incident occurred at JFK Airport in New York. A fellow flyer recorded a video of the former Fox News host losing his cool on an airport employee over a lengthy delay on his flight to the Turks and Caicos Islands.

The video was posted on Twitter by political commentator Ron Filipknowski (per Business Insider). In it, you can hear O'Reilly yelling at a JetBlue employee. "What you're gonna do ... it's three hours late," he shouted. "No, no, no. You're going to find out," he could be heard saying after the worker responded.

The incident got even more heated when O'Reilly began screaming, "You f***ing scumbag. Don't talk to me like that." The employee can be heard saying, "You're threatening me with violence, man," to which O'Reilly responded, "No, I'm not." He also implied that the employee's job was on the line.

This exchange is yet another unflattering look for O'Reilly, who was known to often lose his temper while hosting "The O'Reilly Factor" (per PressThink).
