Fox News gave "The Five" co-host Bob Beckel the boot Friday for making a racist remark to a black IT worker.

The embattled network, which has been dealing with a swirling sex harassment scandal and is still reeling from the death Thursday of founder Roger Ailes, gave only a bare bones explanation for why it was parting with the 68-year-old pundit.

"Bob Beckel was terminated today for making an insensitive remark to an African-American employee," a spokesperson said in a statement.

Attorney Douglas Wigdor, who is representing the IT worker and nearly two dozen other Fox News employees who have sued the network for racial discrimination, said Beckel couldn't handle having a black man fix his computer.

I get an impression that a white male on air personality at Fox had to be either sexist or racist or both.
