Tina Fey Called Out Bill O’Reilly For Workplace Sexual Harassment In Multiple Episodes Of ‘SNL’ Way Back In 2004

Where to Stream

Saturday Night Live

Tina Fey has been waging a one-woman campaign against sexual harassers and abusers in the media for over a decade. A few years ago, it came to light that she had been stealthily going after Bill Cosby for his serial sexual assaults with jokes on both 30 Rock and Saturday Night Live‘s Weekend Update. It turns out she also had Bill O’Reilly‘s number back then, too.

On the heels of the news that Fox News is letting Bill O’Reilly go over a workplace sexual harassment scandal, it’s worth revisiting this clip from the October 11, 2004 episode of SNL, taped just days after O’Reilly settled a different sexual harassment suit out of court.

Hulu subscribers can watch the above clip without any issues, but for those of you without an active Hulu subscription, here’s a transcript:

FEY: Bill O’Reilly settled his sexual harassment suit out of court this week. This is what he had to say about it on Thursday’s O’Reilly Factor.
O’REILLY: This brutal ordeal is now officially over and I will never speak of it again.
FEY: But I will! ‘Cause I like the part about you wanting to rub falafel on that lady’s boobs. And, uh, the part about how you love vibrators. And the part about how you believed it when a prostitute told you you had a big penis. (Laughs) I love all those parts … and I’m gonna keep talkin’ about ’em. A lot.

As hardcore Tina Fey fans on Tumblr are pointing out, Fey also made mention of O’Reilly’s sexual harassment scandals put in a December 2004 Weekend Update bit.

The joke appears in the middle of a Weekend Update segment that was overshadowed at the time by a guest appearance from a then-beleaguered Lindsay Lohan (who may or may not have been sleeping with that week’s SNL host Colin Farrell). Fey’s co-anchor, Amy Poehler, winds it up by making a fairly light joke about a scandal involving O’Reilly offending a Jewish caller to his radio show. Then Fey takes over and rants to the camera:

“Hey, Bill! Remember that time you used to call that lady who worked for you and tell her you wanted to rub some soap on her boobs? And then you told her you had a big penis? But if you really had a big penis, you wouldn’t have to tell people — they would just see that. Aw man, remember when you did that? I DO.”

Then Don Pardo announces, “This has been ‘Don’t forget Bill O’Reilly is disgusting.'” Hulu subscribers can also watch this full clip below.
