David Bossie has been banned from the network for two weeks following the comment which he made this past Sunday, The Daily Beast revealed this Monday.

Bossie appeared on “Fox & Friends” on Sunday and made the remarks to Democratic strategist Joel Payne during a heated discussion on the “zero tolerance policy.”

The panel was talking about former CIA Director Michael Hayden sharing a photograph of Auschwitz in reference to the Trump administration’s now halted policy of separating immigrant families at the border.

“That liberal Michael Hayden, that screaming liberal Michael Hayden,” Payne mocked.

“You’re out of your cotton-picking mind,” Bossie responded.

“Cotton-picking mind?” Payne said, clearly taken aback. “Brother, let me tell you something, I got some relatives who picked cotton and I’m not going to sit back and let you attack me on TV like that.”

“Attack you how? You’re out of your mind,” Bossie added.

Bossie later released an apology for the remark via a tweet on Sunday night.

In a statement published this Sunday, a Fox News spokesperson deemed Bossie’s remarks “deeply offensive and wholly inappropriate.”

“David Bossie’s comments today were deeply offensive and wholly inappropriate,” the statement said. “His remarks do not reflect the sentiments of FOX News and we do not in any way condone them.”

Two weeks seems a little lenient of a punishment to me for straight up blurting a racial slur at an African American, but then again it is Fox News.

Here’s how Americans reacted:
