Attorney Lisa Bloom set her sights on Fox News’ Jesse Watters with two tweets Wednesday evening.

Bloom represented Perquita Burgess, the woman recently ousted Fox News host Bill O’Reilly allegedly called “Hot Chocolate,” and on Wednesday, she blasted Watters for participating in “an environment that reduces every woman to sexual plaything [sic].”

“We all saw your hand to mouth gesture on the video,” she continued. “We brought O’Reilly down. Maybe you should be next.”

Bloom was referencing comments Watters made on Tuesday’s broadcast of “The Five.”

While discussing Ivanka Trump’s recent speech at a European women’s summit, the “Watters World” host said he liked the way she was talking into the microphone, which many interpreted as a sexual innuendo.


Watters defended himself on Twitter Wednesday morning on Twitter, writing that he was “referring to Ivanka’s voice and how it resonates like a smooth jazz radio DJ.”

“This was in no way a joke about anything else.”

On Wednesday’s broadcast of “The Five,” Watters announced he would be taking an impromptu family vacation and would return to the air on Monday.

Fox declined to offer additional comment on the announcement.

A source familiar with Fox’s inner workings told TheDC that despite what the network is currently saying, Watters’ unannounced trip “can’t be a good sign.”
