If you’ve been paying attention to the news today, you would have noticed the bombshell headline that former Fox News host, Gretchen Carlson, has sued FOX Chairman and CEO, Roger Ailes, for sexual harassment.
Carlson was terminated on June 23 — the day her contract ended — after an 11- year tenure at the network. Her complaint alleges that she was let go for “rebuffing” Ailes’ sexual advances and for “challenging” the unfair treatment in the newsroom by male colleagues.
The case has already created a firestorm on Twitter and the public has begun to weigh in.

Hey, conservative ladies, maybe thank feminists for making it possible for you to sue for sexual harassment today. #GretchenCarlson.
