It's widely reported that unnamed sources have confirmed the pictures, and all recipients of the texts wish to remain anonymous. Former network chairman Roger Ailes, who died in May, was forced out after multiple women accused him of making unwanted sexual advances, which he denied.

Bolling's alleged messages were sent a few years ago, but that obviously doesn't make them less gross: according to the HuffPost report, "the women did not solicit the messages, which they told colleagues were deeply upsetting and offensive".

One recipient said she texted Bolling to never send such a photo again, and said that he didn't respond.

The suspension is the latest in a string of sexual harassment complaints against personalities who appear on Fox News and Fox Business Network. Some of these scandals already had forced out former Fox News chairman Roger Ailes, who died last May, and sexual predator Bill O'Reilly, who now makes podcasts from his vehicle.

Bolling, a co-host of the Fox News program "The Specialists", is a vocal defender of President Donald Trump.

A Fox News spokesperson confirmed Saturday that Bolling's suspension is "pending the results of an investigation, which is now underway".

A spokesperson for Fox News said Cashin In', which was taped Friday as usual, was pulled from airing once the media outlet "was made aware of the allegations" through the Huffington Post story. He apologized the next day, citing "a look" he got from his wife when he arrived home.

Bolling co-hosts The Fox News Specialists and formerly co-hosted Fox News' The Five until it moved to prime time earlier this year.

"My only surprise is that it took this long for people to come forward about Bolling's behavior, which has been wildly inappropriate for years", Heldman wrote.

According to the Huffington Post, Bolling was also caught making misogynistic comments on air.
