Fox News host Bob Beckel posted cryptic apology to his Twitter account on Saturday, saying his “Fox boss” was not happy with him — about something.
Said some things on Five I regret Fox boss not happy don’t blame them. Meant no harm but no excuse Forgive me

As Mediaite’s Evan McMurry pointed out, it was unclear from the tweet what the co-host of “The Five” was apologizing for, since he has come under fire for several offensive comments recently.
Among those comments that made it to air were the use of the racial slur “Chinamen” as well as describing the star of “The Bachelorette” TV show as “a slut.”
Beckel had already sort of apologized for the slur during a bizarre segment in which he also insisted: “I do not apologize to the Chinese government, or for the habits, or for the murders or anything else.”
