Russia: Kremlin demands apology from Fox for Bill O’Reilly calling Vladimir Putin “a killer”

The Kremlin wants an apology from Fox after the network’s host called Russian President Vladimir Putin “a killer” minutes before the most-watched TV event of the year.

Bill O’Reilly made the comment during an interview with President Donald Trump that aired just before kickoff of the Super Bowl. “But he’s a killer, though. Putin’s a killer,” O’Reilly said in response to President

Trump who, seconds earlier, admitted he has great respect for the Russian president. Trump appeared to defend Putin in the interview, saying that the U.S. has “a lot of killers” as well, suggesting it was morally on par with Russia.

The Kremlin did not find O’Reilly’s characterization agreeable. On Monday, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on a conference call that the Fox News host’s comments were “unacceptable and insulting.”
