Updated CAIR Alert: Islamophobic Host Jeanine Pirro Back on Fox, Urge Advertisers to Withdraw Ads

(WASHINGTON, D.C., 3/29/19) – The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the nation’s largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization, today renewed its call on advertisers to withdraw their ads from Fox News after reports that Islamophobe Jeanine Pirro’s program will reappear on the network Saturday.

Pirro will be a guest on Sean Hannity’s show tonight, her first appearance on air since she attacked Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) for her decision to wear a hijab and questioned her loyalty to America.

TAKE ACTION: EMAIL FOX AND ITS CORPORATE ADVERTISERS TODAY

On March 13, CAIR’s New York chapter joined a coalition of groups at an event outside a meeting of Fox News advertisers in New York City to urge a boycott of the network until Jeanine Pirro and another Islamophobic Fox News host — Tucker Carlson — are fired.

The meeting with advertisers was reportedly designed to stem the flow of ad dollars from the network because of recent controversies involving the hosts.

The Washington-based civil rights organization called for Carlson’s firing after audio was uncovered of him making racist, white supremacist and Islamophobic statements.
