Fox News has fired network contributor Kevin Jackson after he called the women who have accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct “lying skanks” during a Twitter rant on Thursday.

“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,” the network said in a statement, according to The Hill. 

Jackson had been commenting on Thursday’s Senate Judiciary Committee hearing throughout the day, and attacked the appearance, academic accomplishments and overall integrity of Christine Blasey Ford, the first woman to publicly accuse Kavanaugh of sexual assault. She gave a testimony in front of the committee Thursday, which is when she told them that she thought Kavanaugh might accidentally kill her while he put his hand over her mouth to stop her from yelling after pinning her down to a bed and groping her.

Jackson tweeted, “Wow #ChristineFord looks rode hard and put up wet, as we say in the country.”

He went on to tweet, “TO HELL with the notion that women must be believed no matter what. Lying skanks is what these 3 women are, and we ALL know.”

He then appeared to shrug off any concern over whether Fox News would care about his tweets.
