Former Fox News anchor Eric Bolling suffered every parent’s worst nightmare when his 19-year-old son, Eric Chase Bolling, mysteriously died this week.
Police are investigating the cause of death. Eric Jr., who was a student at the University of Colorado at Boulder, was found dead in his bed at his apartment on September 8. The shocking news came just hours after Bolling was fired by Fox News amid sexual harassment allegations.
Initial reports claimed the teen committed suicide from a possible drug overdose, but Bolling said the cause of death is still unknown. Eric Jr. was said to be extremely upset over his dad’s firing.
“There is no sign of self harm at this point,” Bolling tweeted. “Autopsy will be next week. Please respect our grieving period.”
While Bolling’s legion of loyal fans and friends expressed condolences over the loss of his only child, soulless liberals gleefully celebrated the tragedy.
Before the body of young Eric Jr. has turned cold, evil leftists gloated that his grieving father “deserved” this. What kind of vile human being thinks such things — let alone says them out loud?
Authorities have informed us there is no sign of self harm at this point. Autopsy will be next week. Please respect our grieving period.

While Bolling’s fans and even some in liberal media extended their condolences to Bolling on the loss of his son, there were still some leftists who couldn’t refrain from being evil and hateful.
Oh now YOU want some respect? Huh, you sure didn't give any to people you didn't like. Your son deserved death. 🙂

Bolling denied the accusations, and filed a $50 million defamation lawsuit against Yashar Ali, a freelance writer for the Huffington Post and New York magazine who broke the story. It’s unknown if there are any recent allegations against Bolling, or why his accusers decided to come forward now instead of years ago, when the incident supposedly occurred.
Former Fox News contributor Michelle Fields vouched for Bolling amid false reports that she was one of his accusers. “Eric Bolling was nothing but professional when I worked w/him,” she tweeted.
Eric Bolling was known to be a loving and devoted father. Over the years, he spoke proudly of his only child on Twitter and Facebook.

The fact that people would go after him at this time is just despicable.
