Fox gave no details on the incident. But lawyer Doug Wigdor said Beckel allegedly left his office when a man came to work on his computer, saying he was doing so because the man was black.
In a statement, Wigdor said that when his client complained to human resources at Fox, Beckel attempted to intimidate him into withdrawing the complaint. Fox denied that anyone tried to intimidate the employee and said Beckel had apologized.
Wigdor’s law firm is representing 22 Fox News employees in a class-action lawsuit alleging widespread racial discrimination at the network.
