Things became quite interesting over at Fox News, as Kiss frontman Gene Simmons was reportedly banned from the network, due to indecent behavior.
As we learned from reports, Fox News “couldn’t get enough” of Simmons’ “supposedly outrageous rock-star antics mixed with conservative politics.”
On Wednesday, Simmons agreed to an interview with Maria Bartiromo on Fox Business Network’s “Morning With Maria” to promote his new book “On Power.”
“Men are jack—–,” Simmons claimed. “I’m not validating it or defending it.”
As soon as the interview ended, Simmons went up to the 14th floor of Fox’s HQ in Manhattan to continue his book promotion. Actually, he was headed to the FoxNews.com’s entertainment section.
As we managed to find out, Simmons interrupted a staff meeting, tearing open his “red velvet shirt to reveal his chest and belly.”
“Hey chicks, sue me!” he shouted to employees. he also said several Michael Jackson pedophilia jokes to everybody who found themselves on site.
Things were far from over as Simmons “bopped two employees on the head with his book, making derisive comments about their comparative intelligence according to the sound their heads made when struck.”
The company staffers found his behavior erratic and inappropriate.
“It was pretty severe,” the source said.
Soo enough, his picture made its way to Fox News’ walls, as everyone began looking for him. Finally, he was not only kicked off the building but also banned from having live Fox News or Fox Business appearances.
On Friday, reports assured that Simmons released a statement with his apology in it, noting the article was a “sexist, wildly inappropriate outburst.”
“I have appeared frequently over the years on various Fox News and Fox Business programs and have a tremendous amount of respect for the talented women and men who work there,” Simmons said.
“While I believe that what is being reported is highly exaggerated and misleading,” he admitted, “I am sincerely sorry that I unintentionally offended members of the Fox team during my visit.”
His interview on his book promotion did not air, as well.
