Bill O’Reilly dropped by Fox and Friends Thursday morning to talk about Whitney Houston’s death and ended up calling Willie Nelson a “creep:”
Why aren’t we telling the truth to young people in America? Is there one public service announcement by any movie star, by any singer that says to children ‘don’t use drugs’? Is there one, I want to see one. There isn’t any. Here’s what we see—Snoop Dogg, Willie Nelson, all of these creeps—and I mean they are creeps—celebrated. And it’s “wink wink,” “oh let’s party, lets get high.” There’s nobody in the media saying this could lead to death and if it doesn’t lead to death.
(No word on why O’Reilly didn’t also single out Armie Hammer, the third celebrity recently ensnared by the Sierra Blanca checkpoint.)
It should be noted that this isn’t the first time O’Reilly has attacked Willie on air. Back in 2008, O’Reilly called Willie Nelson a pinhead after the singer appeared on Alex Jones’ radio program and discussed his 9/11 consipiracy theories.
