An onlooker interrupted a Fox News live outdoors shot Saturday, repeatedly yelling “Bill Clinton is a rapist” before being removed by security.
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 with Clinton’s face and the word “rape.”
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.
