Fox News host Eric Bolling apologized on-air Thursday for mocking a female fighter pilot from the United Arab Emirates.

On Wednesday’s edition of “The Five,” co-host Kimberly Guilfoyle recognized Major Mariam Al Mansouri for reportedly leading the UAE’s bombing campaign Monday against the Islamic State. Bolling and his co-host Greg Gutfeld chuckled.

“Would that be considered boobs on the ground or no?” Bolling said.

Apparently, the quip didn’t go over well with Bolling’s wife.

“I want to go back to last night, about this time I made a joke. When I got home, I got the look,” he said Thursday. “And I realized some people didn’t think it was funny at all. I said sorry to my wife and I apologize to all of you as well, I just want to make that very clear.”

“And you love women and have respect for them?” Guilfoyle prodded.

“And I do,” Bolling said.
