A Fox News contributor has been fired after posting a series of offensive tweets directed at Christine Blasey Ford, the psychology professor accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her when they were both teens.

While Ford was delivering her testimony to the committee Thursday, Kevin Jackson tweeted: “Wow, looks rode hard and put up wet, as we say in the country. Just peeked into this FARCE.”

In a since-deleted tweet he also said: “#ChristineBlaseyFord academic problems came from her PROMISCUITY!” And “Dang girl, stop opening your legs and OPEN A BOOK!”

He then referred to Ford, Deborah Ramirez, and Julie Swetnick (Ramirez and Swetnick have also made allegations against Kavanaugh) as “lying skanks,” adding: “Feminists are their own worst enemies, and enemy of women.”

Fox confirmed in a brief statement Thursday that it would no longer work with Jackson according to Newsweek.

“Kevin Jackson has been terminated as a contributor,” a spokesperson said. “His comments on today’s hearings were reprehensible and do not reflect the values of Fox News.”

Upon his firing, Jackson tweeted again: “I stand on the principle of FAIRNESS in the treatment of ALL people. The farce proves that are simply putrid. My stance got me fired as a Contributor on Fox, and that’s their choice. I made mine!”

Ford, who is a psychology professor in California, has alleged that she was assaulted at a house party by Brett Kavanaugh when she was 15-years-old. Ford was questioned by Rachel Mitchell, a veteran sex crimes prosecutor from Arizona. However, Kavanaugh was questioned by Republican and Democratic seantors alike during the hearing, denying the allegations against him, as well as sidestepped suggestions that the FBI should investigate.
