A Fox News contributor took things a bit too far in a Twitter rant during Thursday's Senate Judiciary Committee hearing with Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and his accuser, Christine Blasey Ford.
According to Mediaite, contributor Kevin Jackson was terminated Thursday afternoon after a series of posts directed at Ford and the other two women who have accused Kavanaugh of sexual assault.
Even as backlash against his tweets grew, Jackson seemed to defiantly stand by what he said.
"Well luckily I work for myself. I suggest you worry about your tweets," Jackson replied to one of the commenters.
What did he say?
Jackson appeared frustrated with Ford, feminists in general, and liberals, attacking each in his Twitter rant.
"Feminists are their own worst enemies, and enemy of women,” Jackson wrote. “Also, they want men to NEVER be believed. I’m not succumbing. TO HELL with the notion that women must be believed no matter what.
“Lying skanks is what these 3 women are, and we ALL know more,” he finished.
I disagree. Feminists are their own worst enemies, and enemy of women. Also, they want men to NEVER be believed. I… https://t.co/vZdv5YUAWc— Kevin Jackson (@Kevin Jackson)1538059039.0
Jackson also accused Ford of being promiscuous, although the reason for this accusation is unclear in the tweets.
“#ChristineBlaseyFord academic problems came from her PROMISCUITY!” Jackson wrote. “Dang girl, stop opening your legs and OPEN A BOOK!”
During her testimony, Ford said she struggled during her early time in college, at least partially due to the trauma from the alleged sexual assault.
In another tweet, Jackson attacked Ford's appearance.
"Wow, #ChristineFord looks rode hard and put up wet, as we say in the country,” Jackson wrote near the start of the hearing Thursday.

How did Fox News respond?
The hearing was ugly enough due to the nature of the allegations and the bitter conflict between Democratic and Republican senators, and Democratic senators and Kavanaugh. Fox News was not willing to tolerate or associate with Jackson's rhetoric.
“Kevin Jackson has been terminated as a contributor,” a Fox News spokesperson told Mediaite. “His comments on today’s hearings were reprehensible and do not reflect the values of Fox News.”
