Taking to social media to seemingly defend the recently-fired Fox News host Bill O’Reilly, Michael Reagan – the son of former President Ronald Reagan – sent a series of tweets about sexual harassment that many have deemed offensive.

Reagan – who serves as the president of the Reagan Legacy Foundation – tweeted early Friday, “Hot Choclare[sic] used to be a compliment on your looks today it is called sexual harassment..@oreillyfactor.”

He added in another Tweet, “If women are going to wear low cut dresses that show cleavage don’t be harassed when we men look.Or shld[sic] we sue for sexual arousal?”



Reagan is the adopted son of the former president and actress Jane Wyman.

On Wednesday, 21st Century Fox issued a statement stating that the network and O’Reilly have agreed that he wouldn’t return following mounting sexual harassment allegations. Earlier this month, The New York Times reported that five women were paid a collective $13 million for agreeing not to file lawsuits or speak publicly about allegations that O’Reilly harassed them.
