Former Los Angeles KISS co-owner and KISS founder Gene Simmons has received a lifetime ban from the Fox News Channel. Simmons latest appearance on the channel was this past Wednesday when he was promoting his new book, On Power.

It appeared that Simmons was having a good time with the FOX and Friends crew. He even delivered the weather when he was a guest.

After sitting down with Maria Bartiromo, following his appearance, he gave his thoughts on the sexual misconduct of Harvey Weinstein. There, he thought a question was funny but replied anyways.

“The lunatics have taken over the insane asylum when respected business entities such as yourself ask guys that like to stick their tongues out,” Simmons said. “What I think of Harvey Weinstein.

“Okay, I’m a powerful and attractive man, and what I’m about to say is deadly serious. Men are jackasses. From the time we’re young, we have testosterone. I’m not validating it or defending it.”

Fox News has been hit hard in the past year with sexual harassment claims, featuring two head figures, who are no longer with the company, in Roger Ailes and Bill O’Reilly. The company has reportedly changed its work environment since the claims began known.

During an interview with, Simmons made a questionable statement.

“Hey chicks, sue me!,” he said, and also showed his chest and belly, according to UPROXX. He reportedly began to tell Michael Jackson pedophilia jokes, then hit two people on their heads with the book.
