DC Anchor Suspended for Tweet About Covid-19 Vaccinations for Obese People

Blake McCoy has been suspended from Fox-owned Washington, D.C., station WTTG after making comments on Twitter about obese people getting Covid-19 vaccines.

“I’m annoyed obese people of all ages get priority vaccine access before all essential workers,” McCoy tweeted at 1:52 p.m. on Tuesday, according to the Washington Blade. “When most stayed home, we went into work everyday last March, April, May and everyday since putting ourselves & loved ones at risk. Vaccinate all essential workers. Then obese.”

McCoy apologized on Twitter later that day.


A Fox spokesperson told TVSpy that McCoy is suspended pending further investigation.

McCoy was called out on Twitter by someone posting a screen shot saying he only apologized because, “who has the time to argue with strangers.”
