Suspended Fox News host Eric Bolling has responded via Twitter to allegations that he sent female coworkers lewd and inappropriate text messages without their consent:

Where things stand: Bolling was swiftly suspended by Fox News on Saturday "pending the results of an investigation" after a Friday evening Huffington Post report detailing the allegations, which Bolling's lawyer branded as "anonymous, uncorroborated claims" that were "untrue and terribly unfair." The network has faced a string of recent high-profile sexual harassment claims, leading to the departures of chairman Roger Ailes last year and anchor Bill O'Reilly in April.
