Hot-headed Bill O’Reilly threatened an airline worker who was trying to help when the former Fox News host’s flight was delayed for hours.
‘You’re going to lose your job.’ the 72-year-old told the JetBlue worker at New York’s JFK airport in video exclusively obtained by DailyMail.com.
O’Reilly was on his way to the Turks and Caicos Islands in the Caribbean on the morning of Sunday, April 3.
The conservative commentator towers over the airline worker in the video snapped by a fellow passenger.
‘What you’re gonna do…it’s three hours late,’ he says. He can then be heard saying: ‘No, no, no, You’re gonna find out,’ jabbing his finger aggressively at the airline employee.
When the employee says something, O’Reilly responds: ‘You f***ing scumbag. Don’t talk to me like that.’
O’Reilly then squints at worker’s name tag, which the man helpfully holds up for him so he can read it more easily.
He then starts cursing at the man as his face contorts into anger. The exact words cannot be made out on the video.
The airline worker then objects to O’Reilly’s tone. ‘You’re threatening me with violence, man,’ he says. ‘No I’m not,’ replies O’Reilly.
It’s then that O’Reilly takes another look at the man’s name-tag and tells him ‘You’re gonna lose your job.’
He then demands: ‘You’re going to get that information,’ before storming away from the counter.
In the video, O’Reilly has his face mask pulled down below his chin. At the time Federal regulations made it mandatory for everyone in airports to wear a face mask. All others shown in the video — including the airport employee — are wearing masks correctly.
