Fox News Host Recalls Ex-Colleague’s Offensive ‘Wouldn’t Marry A Fat Girl’ Comments

0


Fox News’ Julie Banderas recalled misogynistic comments that were once made to her by a former male colleague.“He told me that he would only marry someone who was hot because he wants to have hot kids,” Banderas remembered on Friday’s episode of “Outnumbered.”“He wouldn’t marry a fat girl, I’m not kidding, this actually came out of the mouth of a man to me, because he wouldn’t want to have fat children,” she continued. “I’m not even joking. And the criteria was that they must be hot. There are a lot of idiots out there.”Banderas did not name the former colleague “because then he would be ruined forever,” she said in a video shared by The Daily Beast. Banderas, a mother of three, has worked at Fox News since 2005. It’s unclear if she worked for the conservative network when the comments were made by her then-coworker.The recollection came during a panel discussion condemning the similarly misogynistic comments made by Anthony Casasanta, a host on “The No Filter Podcast.”Casasanta, in a video that went viral on TikTok with more than 2.2 million views and sparked outrage worldwide, said: “If my wife lets herself go after I have kids with her, I’m going to tell her, once: ‘If you don’t get your shit together…’ I still want to be sexually attracted to my wife, my spouse, girlfriend too. ‘But if you can’t do that, I’m out.’”The podcast hosts refused to apologize, however, and claimed in a statement to news.com.au that their comments had been taken “out of context.”
