Kudlow of Fox Business accused of racist, sexist remarks
Fox Business host Larry Kudlow made racist and sexist remarks during staff meetings and even blocked an on-air appearance by a Florida congressman because he is Black, according to a lawsuit, reports Leonard Greene of the New York Daily News.
Greene reports, “Kudlow, a former top official in President Donald Trump’s administration, told his Fox staff not to book U.S. Rep. Byron Donalds (R-Fla.) as a guest because he did not want ‘the Black’ on his show that day, according to a lawsuit by a Fox producer.
“That producer, John Fawcett, also alleged that Fox News contributor Andrew Napolitano sexually harassed him in an elevator in 2019, with network execs ignoring complaints. Napolitano, a former New Jersey judge, harassed other men at the network, according to Fawcett’s lawsuit.
“He said network executives also dismissed complaints against Kudlow, former director of the National Economic Council under Trump. Fawcett, 27, has worked for Kudlow since host Lou Dobbs was fired in February.”
