“I wouldn’t be proud to be the first person to say, ‘I am a feminist,'” O’Reilly told Howard Stern.
“I don’t think we’re ever going to have a person say, I am a person of color.
I would never be proud.
But I would be proud of the fact that you could call me a feminist.”
O’Reillys remarks come as the show continues its season eight, which premieres Saturday, Oct. 7.
He said he’s been invited to talk to the cast, crew and producers, but he’s “never seen the show.”
