Fox News reporter Adam Housley has hit back at anonymous online attackers who have made hateful and racist comments about his wife, former "Sister Sister" star Tamera Mowry.

During an interview with Fox News host Bill O'Reilly, Housely said, "They are bullies, that's what they are. They are actually bullies. We need to get rid of this."



Mowry, who starred with her identical sibling Tia on "Sister Sister" in the 1990s, revealed earlier this week that she had endured sickening racist remarks since marrying Housley, who is white, in 2011.

In an appearance on the OWN network's "Oprah: Where Are They Now?" show, she said tearfully, "I get called 'white man's whore.' The new one was, 'Back in the day you cost $300, but now you're giving it to him for free.'

"It's hurtful, because my husband and I are so openly and fine with showing love, but people choose to look past love and spew hate. That's what hurts me because I've never experienced so much hate ever in my life."

On the O'Reilly program, Housley said that his wife, who is biracial, had spoken up about the harassment over their inter-racial marriage because she was attempting to honestly answer a question that had been "festering."

"There are always people in the public eye," said Housley. "They have always been criticized. But with Twitter and Facebook, people for the first time have direct access to anybody. It allows them to stay anonymous and to say things that are completely inappropriate and hurtful."

O'Reilly pointed out that because America values free speech "defamatory obscenities are allowed” while urging Housley to ignore the "cowards who hide in their basements."

But Housley said, “Even if you don’t look for it, it’s there and it shows up.”

Housley said he believes that five years from now the majority of children born in the U.S. will be of mixed race, and told the haters to "get over it."
