Eric Chase Bolling, the son of former Fox News anchor Eric Bolling, died on Saturday. His passing is being celebrated by leftists on Twitter as a means to mock his father, who lost his job on the cable news network a day earlier.
TMZ reported that the younger Bolling, who was 19, died from a drug overdose. Numerous leftists on Twitter called his death a fitting punishment for the alleged actions of his father, who had been terminated following allegations of sexual harassment.
“I knew [Eric Bolling] was a POS, but it is incredibly rare to see karma deliver such harsh justice,” wrote @Donnie2Scoop. “The teen son deserved better.”
Dozens of other progressives mocked Bolling for his son’s death, also calling it karma. Many gloated over the tragedy, sharing GIFs and images to express their joy at his suffering.
