Liberal Twitter Celebrates End of Bill O’Reilly’s Fox News Career: ‘I Never Want This Day to End’

Social media was a combination of “The Wizard of Oz” and the Ewok celebration scene from “Return of the Jedi” after O’Reilly was fired following a sexual harassment scandal

Just over two weeks after the it came out that Fox News has paid at least $13 million in settlements to women who accused O’Reilly of sexual harassment, the network announced this morning that it has parted ways with the host of “The O’Reilly Factor” after 21 years.

The firing caps a brutal two weeks for O’Reilly, who faced his first sexual harassment scandal in 2004 but came away unscathed (even if his name became synonymous with the word “falafel”). Since the multiple settlements paid by Fox became public however, additional accusers have come forward with even more disturbing allegations, Fox’s internal morale has reportedly cratered, and the “Factor” has seen a massive exodus of advertisers.

Needless to say, O’Reilly’s critics are positively ecstatic. Liberal Twitter resembled a combination of “Ding Dong the Witch Is Dead” and the Ewok celebration at the end of “Return of the Jedi,” as celebs and civilians alike rejoiced in the apparent demise of O’Reilly’s career, and the manner in which it happened.

Some reveled in the fact that O’Reilly is out of a job.

Others put his name forward as a possible replacement for White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer.

Others simply basked in the warm glow of schadenfreude.

And here’s a few from before O’Reilly was officially canned, but they’re too good not to share.
