“Repeated bad behavior on and off-air. Bad judgment,” a second source close to the situation told Fox News Digital when asked about MSNBC’s decision not to keep Cross…
Cross was previously a fill-in host for Joy Reid’s weekend show “AM Joy” and got her own Saturday program in 2020. There, she was known for her vitriolic statements about conservatives, remarking that there is already a “civil war” happening in the U.S., urged liberals to “pick up a weapon” in the fight for democracy, and called Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas
“Justice Pubic Hair on My Coke Can.”
She also warned about “White replacement” on the show and blasted Republican members of Congress as “White supremacists.” Cross recently drew ridicule when she weighed in on the Tua Tagovailoa concussion incident by wrongly calling the Miami Dolphins quarterback Black and his head coach White; Tagovailoa is Samoan, and his coach is mixed-race. Cross had suggested Tagovailoa, who suffered a concussion in a September game, had been put at risk by his coach due to racism.
