Bill O’Reilly arrested reprimanding JetBlue worker: ‘I’m going to lose my job’

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

The cantankerous veteran broadcaster, 72, was arrested berating a JetBlue staff member at JFK airport in New York on April 3, with the incident caught on eyewitness footage.

The now-viral footage shows O’Reilly swearing aggressively and pointing his finger at the male airline employee, before declaring, “You’re going to lose your job.”

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

“What are you going to do ‘…it’s three hours late,” the khaki-clad commentator says angrily.

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

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

O’Reilly vehemently denies the claim, retorting, “No, I’m not. you are the one [saying] ‘I challenge you… I challenge you.’ Is that what you told me?”

The single anchor then storms off, with the other travelers seen confused by the altercation.

The viewer who shot the video told South West News Service: “I was so surprised I couldn’t believe how arrogant he was. That poor guy from JetBlue just works there, it’s not his fault the flight was delayed, he’s just trying to do his job.

The 72-year-old was reportedly furious that his flight was delayed for three hours. O’Reilly later said in a statement that it was the airport worker who was arrogant – not him.

O’Reilly later said in a statement that the flight was ultimately delayed for five hours and it was the airport worker who was being arrogant – not him.

O’Reilly was Fox News’ biggest star before a series of allegations became public in 2017. It was reported at the time that the network had settled five lawsuits with women who accused him of sexual misconduct. Two of the lawsuits were for sexual harassment, which cost the company about $13 million.

He was ousted from Fox shortly after the scandals broke.

Over the next five years, O’Reilly kept busy writing books. His next volume, “Killing the Killers”, is due out in May.

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

O'Reilly was ousted from Fox in 2017. He has kept himself busy writing a number of books in the years since.
