Fox News has terminated its contract with liberal commentator Bob Beckel.

The network said in a statement: “Bob Beckel was terminated today for making an insensitive remark to an African-American employee.”

It isn’t clear what that remark was.

Beckel recently rejoined the network after he left in 2015 due to personal issues. He returned to Fox News in 2017.

Beckel was known for his liberal views and his combative personality. You can see one of his controversial clips below:

This firing comes amid a lot of changes to Fox’s lineup. The network recently got rid of long-time anchor Bill O’Reilly. And just yesterday, the founder the network, Roger Ailes, passed away. Ailes left the network in 2016 after settlements related to sexual harassment came to light.
