Fox News has fired "The Five" co-host Bob Beckel on Friday for making an insensitive remark to an African-American employee, TheWrap has confirmed.

"Bob Beckel was terminated today for making an insensitive remark to an African-American employee".

"HR was informed of the incident on Tuesday evening and did a thorough investigation within 48 hours", a source familar with the matter tells The Hill.

Beckel, who played the part of the Washington Generals "token liberal" on The Five left the network in mid 2015, but recently came back just as his show moved to a coveted prime time slot at 9PM.

"We tried to work with Bob for months, but we couldn't hold "The Five" hostage to one man's personal issues", Shine said. "I have no doubt it will be a vigorous yet entertaining debate". Executives reportedly conducted an internal investigation and ultimately chose to end his role with the network.

No word on who will replace Beckel on the 9PM The Five but with the now ex-co-host alternating with Juan Williams on the show all the seats look set to be filled tonight.

"Mr. Beckel stormed out of his office when our client, a black IT employee, came to service his computer, telling our client that he was leaving his office because he is black". The commentator rejoined the network in January and Fox News chairman Rupert Murdoch said at the time that he was "missed" by fans of the network. "As with our other 22 clients, we intend on holding 21st Century Fox accountable for these actions and will be filing multiple other complaints in other matters next week", Wigdor said.

Bob Beckel was sacked for the second time in two years, after just returning to the network in January after being fired in 2012 over various controversies. The recently deceased Roger Ailes, former chairman and CEO, left the network a year ago after similar harassment accusations, including from ex-Fox News hosts Gretchen Carlson and Megyn Kelly. Ailes denied the allegations and O'Reilly has said his fame made him a target had made settlements to accusers out of a desire to protect his children.
