Bill O’Reilly berated a JetBlue worker: ‘Will lose his job’

TV news legend Bill O’Reilly is back on camera – but not in the way he might like.

The feisty television veteran, 72, was arrested on April 3 when he verbally abused a JetBlue employee at New York’s JFK airport, the incident being caught on video by an eyewitness.

Footage, now viral, shows O’Reilly aggressively cursing and pointing fingers at the male airline worker before saying, “You’re going to lose your job.”

In the minute-long clip, the former, longtime Fox News ratings leader can be seen with the face mask pulled down around his chin as he speaks to the man at a ticket booth.

“What are you going to do? . . . It’s three hours late,” the khaki-clad commentator notes angrily.

The pair have a back-and-forth exchange, much of which is inaudible, before O’Reilly – who is now hosts the No Spin News and Analysis podcast. – scolds: “F – – King don’t start, f – – King don’t talk to me like that!”

“You’re threatening me with violence, man,” replies the unnamed JetBlue employee.

O’Reilly fiercely denies the claim, snapping back, “No, I’m not. you are the one [saying] ‘I challenge you… I challenge you.’ Did you say that to me?”

The one-time anchor then storms off, with fellow passengers looking confused by the altercation.

The viewer who shot the video told South West News Service: “I was so stunned. I couldn’t believe how arrogant he was. Poor JetBlue guy only works there. It’s not his fault the flight was delayed. He’s just trying to do his job.”

The 72-year-old is said to have been upset that his flight was delayed by three hours.

O’Reilly later said in a statement that the flight ended up being five hours late and that the airport employee was being arrogant – not him.

O’Reilly was Fox News’ biggest star before a series of allegations were made public in 2017. It was reported at the time that the network had settled five lawsuits involving women who had accused him of sexual misconduct. Two of the lawsuits concerned sexual harassment — and the lawsuits cost the company around $13 million.

He was ousted from Fox shortly after the scandals broke.

In the five years since, O’Reilly has been busy writing books. His upcoming tome, Killing the Killers: The Secret War Against Terrorists, is slated for release in May.

Meanwhile, JetBlue spokesman Derek Dombrowski said he could not comment on the altercation between O’Reilly and the airline employee until he saw the video.
