Fox News gives Gene Simmons kiss-off for 'Hey, chicks, sue me!'

Moreover, "justice" was quickly served.

Gene Simmons can kiss his relationship with Fox News goodbye, because the rocker has been banned for life from the conservative news network!

Not long after the interview, Simmons chose to demonstrate exactly what he meant when he crashed a Fox staff meeting rather than go into the room where he was supposed to do an interview with FoxNews.com's entertainment section, a source told the Daily Beast.

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

Per the source, the 68-year-old was on the premises to promote his new book, and his first few encounters, while Simmons-esque, didn't cross the line: He leaped off the Fox & Friends couch to help meteorologist Janice Dean talk about the weather, and he followed that up with an interview with Maria Bartiromo, which delved into the sexual misconduct allegations against Harvey Weinstein.

Simmons's publicist didn't immediately respond to a request for comment, The Daily Beast reported.

Elsewhere, Gene Simmons was also asked to give his views on the Harvey Weinstein case.

He added, "Okay, I'm a powerful and attractive man, and what I'm about to say is deadly serious".

"Men are jackasses. From the time we're young we have testosterone".

A source told the publication that Simmons shouted, "Hey chicks, sue me!" before pulling open his shirt to reveal his chest and belly.

"It was pretty severe", a source said.

His lewd behavior was promptly reported to Fox management.

Gene Simmons has earned himself a lifetime Fox News ban for simply acting like a rock star.

Like Simmons said, you're asking a guy who likes to stick his tongue out to appear on your network, what do you expect? Alongside their iconic face paint personas and intense live performances, the band is known for hits such as Rock And Roll All Nite and I Was Made For Lovin' You.
