An onlooker interrupted a Fox News live outdoors shot Saturday, repeatedly yelling “Bill Clinton is a rapist” before being removed by security.
The incident appeared to be linked to conservative radio host Alex Jones, who on Friday offered $5,000 to any listener who appeared on national TV calling Clinton a rapist.
The incident occurred just before 8 a.m. as “Fox & Friends” hosts Tucker Carlson, Abby Huntsman and Ed Henry were live from the streets of midtown Manhattan, introducing a segment on a charity event for shelter pets.
Among the onlookers behind the hosts, a man appearing to be in his twenties climbed a security railing and removed his outer shirt, revealing underneath a T-shirt sold by Jones, which features Clinton’s face above the word “rape.” The shirt was designed by former Trump adviser Roger Stone.
He yelled “Bill Clinton is a rapist” five times, clinging to the security railing as security forces wrestled him out of the shot.
“We’ve got a very excited young man behind us,” joked a laughing Tucker Carlson.
The heckler briefly escaped from security and was able to work his way back behind on camera. The producers took the hosts off camera as a precaution, placing a generic graphic of the “Fox & Friends” logo on the screen instead for a few seconds until it security had complete control of the situation.
On his Infowars radio show, Jones on Friday hawked the Clinton “rape” t-shirt and offered big money to anyone who wears the shirt and calls Clinton a rapist on television.
“Anyone that gets on national TV with the shirt clearly, for more than five seconds, gets $1,000. That means behind cameras, you name it. Anyone that gets it on air on national TV and gets the words out ‘Bill Clinton is a rapist,’ or things along that line, with a bullhorn — I could go to this right now, $5,000.”
