Fox News Slaps Gene Simmons With a Lifetime Ban

Disguised bank teller arrested after robbing own branch of bank

Management wasn't happy about this when staffers complained, and it would seem Simmons is now a persona-non-grata at Fox properties.

Simmons also jokingly hit staffers in the head with his new book and asked a black employee if he was NBC weatherman Al Roker.

Beginning on Wednesday, Fox News instructed its security at the network's midtown Manhattan headquarters not to permit Simmons on the premises as he had been labeled with a "do-not-admit" tag.

Simmons was on the network's Fox & Friends and Fox Business Network program Mornings With Maria Wednesday (November 15) to promote his new book On Power.

As for that interview with FoxNews.com to promote his book, Simmons completed it, but it will not see the light of day, the Daily Beast reported.

During his interview this week with Fox Business anchor Maria Bartiromo, Simmons sounded off on accused sexual harasser Harvey Weinstein.

Rather than do that, however, he reportedly crashed a staff meeting by shouting, 'Hey chicks, sue me!' before pulling open his shirt to expose his chest and belly.

He's always been a Fox News favorite, but Gene Simmons is now persona non grata at the network.

A rep for Simmons did not immediately respond to a request for comment. "OK, I'm a powerful and attractive man, and what I'm about to say is deadly serious: Men are jackasses".

After that, Simmons started telling Michael Jackson pedophilia jokes while mocking the intelligence of Fox's employees.

"From the time we're young - we have testosterone, I'm not validating it or defending it - guys need to be training from a very, very young age from their mothers, from their loved ones, to understand that half the world's population are female and they need to be treated with respect". "'It was pretty severe", the source said. He was barred from appearing on the networks' shows after his behavior was reported to higher-ups.
