Bill O’Reilly didn’t have a very pleasant view of Whitney Houston’s death during an airing of the The O’Reilly Factor on Monday, E Online reports.
This is what he had to say about her death:
“Whitney Houston wanted to kill herself,” insisted O’Reilly after bringing up the late singer’s past history with substance abuse.
“Nobody takes drugs for that long if they want to stay on the planet,” he said, adding: “She follows in the footsteps of Elvis [Presley], Janis Joplin, Michael Jackson and scores of other entertainment figures. The hard truth is that some people will always want to destroy themselves, and there’s nothing society can do about it..”
