Following the tweet, Fox News told the beast that it had "no intention" of booking him again.

Fox News said it had "no intention of booking a longtime contributor" after tweeting a misogynist attack on Kamala Harris during the vice-presidential debate, The Daily Beast reported.
During her debate with Vice President Mike Pence, Hill wrote, "Kamala Harris comes out as such an unbearable lie b ----. Sorry, it's just true."
The tweet was widespread and also met with significant criticism.
Hill's website describes him as a Republican political adviser invited to President Donald Trump's 2020 re-election campaign in 2017.
His Twitter bio also makes references to the campaign, although the details of any involvement are unclear. Business Insider reached out to the campaign to comment and clarify its role.
He caught attention in 2016, describing himself as a former supporter of Bernie Sanders who switched allegiance to Trump.
Following the tweet, a Fox News spokesperson told The Daily Beast, "We have no intention of booking him as a guest on any of our platforms."
Hill wasn't a Fox News employee, but a regular commentator for the station. According to The Beast, he had at least 47 appearances on Fox News or Fox Business since December 2017.
Despite the backlash, Hill stuck to his comments and sent another tweet saying, "Good morning! Kamala Harris is still sucking and coming out as b ----."
Since then he has appeared on the right-wing platform The National Pulse, whose editor-in-chief Raheem Kassam is a former Breitbart editor and a close collaborator of Steve Bannon.
Hill told Kassam that he had been "inundated" with threatening messages since the tweet, including one - the audio of which he had played - and said he could "eat a bullet."
"There is this clear exaggeration, I still stand by what I said," he continued. "I last thought [Harris] was being aggressive and angry and rude to the Vice President, and she has lied repeatedly, repeatedly, to the American people and to the moderator."
Business Insider's review of the debate by reporters Sonam Sheth and John Haltiwanger found that both candidates were making misleading statements, with the majority attributed to pence.
Business Insider has reached out to Hill, the Trump re-election campaign, and Fox News for comment.
