Sorry, Bill O’Reilly, we’d say it’s a little too late for this apology.

The Fox News host released a statement on Tuesday afternoon apologizing for comparing Maxine Waters’ hairdo to James Brown.

“As I have said many times, I respect Congresswoman Maxine Waters for being sincere in her beliefs,” he said. “I said that again today on Fox & Friends calling her ‘old school.’ Unfortunately, I also made a jest about her hair which was dumb. I apologize.”

O’Reilly was blasted by folks on social media after suggesting during a segment on Fox & Friends that Waters’ hair was similar to that of the late legendary singer.

While discussing Waters’ recent comments regarding Trump supporters, O’Reilly said that he “didn’t hear a word she said. I was looking at the James Brown wig. Do we have a picture of James Brown? It’s the same wig.”

Co-host Brian Kilmeade then fired back with an inappropriate and sick joke about James’ 2006 death. He commented: “He’s not using it anymore. They just ― they finally buried him.”

And while the two morons got a kick out of comparing Maxine to the late singer, host Ainsley Earhardt defended Waters, saying: “You can’t go after a woman’s looks. I think she’s very attractive.”

O’Reilly then added: “I didn’t say she wasn’t attractive. I love James Brown but it’s the same hair James Brown, the Godfather of Soul, had … whatever it is, I just couldn’t get by it.”

It’s no secret that Bill is not only ignorant, but that he hits under the belt. Remember when he called Black people “ill-educated and have tattoos on their foreheads”?

Many Twitter users were very vocal about O”Reilly’s comments, most calling him racist and sexist. One Twitter user wrote: From Bill O’Reilly trying it w/Auntie Maxine & Spicer attempting to tell April Ryan what to do, white male privilege is out of control today.”

Many also raised the question as to why people are shocked by his comments, considering this is the same man who once allegedly physically assaulted his wife by dragging her down the stairs.

Actress Sophia Bush tweeted, “Bill O’Reilly is an asshole. A racist, misogynistic asshole.”

Finally! Taraji P. Henson Confirms Relationship With NFL Baller Kelvin Hayden

Taraji is finally letting the world know what it already knew – she’s in a relationship with NFL cornerback Kelvin Hayden. Henson dished the (cold) tea while on Essence’s Yes, Girl! podcast saying that the reason she kept it a secret was because she’s a private person.

“I’m not the type to blast my personal business. But, you know, I think that’s important for people to know. I’m happy. I’m very very happy. I just am,” the “Empire” actress shared.

Rumors first circulated in December 2015 about Henson and 34-year-old Hayden, who played for the Chicago Bears and the Indianapolis Colts, after photos surfaced of the pair holding hands in Miami. Though Hayden has appeared on her Instagram feed, the Golden Globe winner never confirmed the intimate details until now.

“You know, we’ve been together for two years. No one would really know that because I don’t really blast my info like that. But I’m very happy,” she said.

Taraji girl we could tell. The Hidden Figures actress even broke out singing, “Finally! It has happened to me,”—quoting the CeCe Peniston‘s song “Finally.”

Henson also revealed the couple will be celebrating the holidays together with the new puppy Hayden gifted her with as an early Christmas present.

“Big #KBall with Lil squirt #KBall watching daddy brush his teeth! 😩😂😂😂,” she wrote, teasing a photo of her boo and new pup.

And speaking of Christmas, in case you missed it Taraji hosted her “White Hot Holidays” special on Fox Wednesday night. Peep the clips of Henson having some fun with her celebrity guests including Method Man, DJ Khaled, Neicy Nash, Salt-N-Pepa and The Ying Yang Twins.
