He also said he expected to be sacked by GB News on Friday over the incident, adding: “I know I’m going to get sacked tomorrow. I’m saying this stuff to clear my own conscience.”
Addressing GB News’s role in the controversy, Fox said: “GB News have opened themselves up for complete destruction, as far as I can tell, because they branded themselves as the home of free speech.
“Now, if you’re the home of free speech then what they could easily have done was say, ‘Look what Laurence said was appalling, reprehensible but he’s got the right to say it, it’s is his opinion. Could he have expressed it better? Yes’.”
He added that he feels the channel is “actually the home of cancel culture, and they’re probably more at risk of cancel culture than any other channel”.
