There is a time and a place for (and a right way to take) dick pics, but it’s arguably not at work, and you probably shouldn’t send them to coworkers who have not explicitly asked for them. However, that’s exactly what Fox News host Eric Bolling allegedly thought was appropriate, according to a report published by the Huffington Post on Friday.
According to the report, Bolling sent dick pics via text message to at least two female colleagues at Fox Business and one colleague at Fox News. Though the incidents happened several years ago, they are just now coming to light. The recipients of the messages showed four other people the messages and spoke to eight others about them — all of these people have confirmed to the Huffington Post they are aware of the messages on the condition of anonymity, given their current or prior ties to Fox. Though Fox initially told Huffington Post they’d just learned of the matter and were investigating it themselves, they released a statement of their own on Saturday stating that Bolling would be suspended during the investigation.

Bolling’s lawyer, Michael J. Bowe, told Huffington Post that his client has no recollection of the events in question, stating, ““Mr. Bolling recalls no such inappropriate communications, does not believe he sent any such communications, and will vigorously pursue his legal remedies for any false and defamatory accusations that are made.” We’ll just have to see how this one ends up.
