Gene Simmons released a statement Friday after The Daily Beast reported that Fox News had banned him for life following a sexist, wildly inappropriate outburst at their offices. “I have appeared frequently over the years on various Fox News and Fox Business programs and have a tremendous amount of respect for the talented women and men who work there,” the statement read. “While I believe that what is being reported is highly exaggerated and misleading, I am sincerely sorry that I unintentionally offended members of the Fox team during my visit.” According to a source with knowledge of the offending incident, Simmons burst uninvited into a Fox News website staff meeting and proceeded to shout “Hey chicks, sue me,” bare his chest, tell pedophilia jokes, and bop two employees on the head with his book.
