Roger Ailes’ son says he’s ‘coming after’ those who ‘betrayed’ his dad: ‘And hell is coming with me’
The teenage son of former Fox News chairman and CEO Roger Ailes told mourners at his father’s funeral that he’s “coming after” those who “betrayed” his dad.
“I want all the people who betrayed my father to know that I’m coming after them,” Zachary Ailes, 17, said during his remarks at the Palm Beach, Florida, ceremony Saturday, LifeZette reported. “And hell is coming with me.”
Ailes, 77, died Thursday after falling and hitting his head May 10 at his Palm Beach home, the New York Times reported. Ailes resigned from his Fox News post in July amid sexual harassment allegations.
It’s not clear who Zachary Ailes meant by “people who betrayed my father.” Trouble began for Roger Ailes after former Fox News anchors Gretchen Carlson and Megyn Kelly alleged that Ailes sexually harassed them. Ailes denied the allegations.
