publish date: 2017-03-09
John Legend could not hold his tongue. On Wednesday (March 8), which happened to be International Women's Day, the singer was so incensed by a comment he read by Fox News anchor Bill O'Reilly he had to go all in on the O'Reilly Factor host.
The incident began when O'Reilly tweeted "Unruly Andrea Mitchell escorted from press conf," a reference to NBC News' veteran Chief Foreign Affairs Correspondent. "The NBC host shouts questions at Secretary of State Rex Tillerson," O'Reilly added. Legend quickly responded, "She's not your granddaughter, Billy. She's a seasoned journalist asking important questions."
She's not your granddaughter, Billy. She's a seasoned journalist asking important questions. You should take notes. https://t.co/6RrISQgsEo
