Bob Beckel was fired again by Fox News for making an "insensitive" remark toward a black employee at the network, according to the cable channel.
"Bob Beckel was terminated today for making an insensitive remark to an African-American employee," the network said in a statement to Variety magazine.
Variety reported that Fox's human-resources department "was made aware of a complaint about what one person familiar with the situation characterized as a 'racially insensitive remark'" on Tuesday. After an internal investigation, Fox decided Friday to part ways with Beckel.
Beckel, a longtime strategist in Democratic politics, is one of the co-hosts of primetime program "The Five." He was fired from Fox once before in 2015 for what the network described as "personal issues."
Fox News is currently facing lawsuits related to sexual harassment and racial discrimination at the network.
