O’Reilly was recently joined by music mogul Russell Simmons on his show, The O’Reilly Factor, to promote his book on the benefits of meditation in schools, but was repeatedly cut off and asked about Beyoncé.
O’Reilly said he has always been “very critical of harmful entertainment marketed to largely unsupervised children,” and questioned why Beyoncé would portray having sex in a limousine when there are so many unwanted teen pregnancies in communities of color.
He continued, calling the video “exploitative garbage that you know harms impressionable children.”
Still, Simmons did get in a few words. He called Beyoncé an incredible artist and defended her music video as art.
