Report: Fox News Bans Kiss' Simmons for Life

(Fox Business' "Mornings With Maria")

By    |   Thursday, 16 November 2017 09:40 PM

Kiss star Gene Simmons has been "banned for life" from Fox News after "he crudely insulted" women during a FoxNews.com staff meeting he barged into uninvited, the Daily Beast reported.

Simmons reportedly shouted, "Hey chicks, sue me!" before revealing his chest and stomach, telling "Michael Jackson pedophilia jokes," and mocking onlookers' intelligence, a source told the Daily Beast.

Simmons' photo was posted at office security entrance later Wednesday with a "do-not-admit" warning, according to the report.

The incident occurred in the Fox News offices after a Fox Business appearance earlier that morning, where Simmons offered his reaction to Harvey Weinstein sexual misconduct allegations.

"The lunatics have taken over the insane asylum when respected business news entities such as yourself ask guys that like to stick their tongues out and own money bag logos what I think of Harvey Weinstein," Simmons told host Maria Bartiromo. "Okay, but truthfully, I'm a powerful and attractive man, and what I'm about to say is deadly serious: Men are jacka–es.

"From the time we're young — we have testosterone, I'm not validating it or defending it — guys need to be training from a very, very young age from their mothers, from their loved ones, to understand that half the world's population are female and they need to be treated with respect."

Simmons added young men just "don't get the training" they need to show the proper respect.

"That's not a defense," he continued." Harvey and [Bill] Cosby and anyone who may have allegedly done any of those things should go down all the way to Hell . . ."

Simmons then called for women to stand up "en masse" against the crimes against them.

Simmons was appearing on Fox Business to promote his book "On Power: My Journey Through the Corridors of Power and How You Can Get More Power."
