A presenter on Bill O’Reilly’s Fox News programme ‘The O’Reilly Factor’, mocked revellers at San Francisco Pride, asking men if they are “sure they don’t like girls.”

Jesse Watters, a presenter with the show, is seen mocking revellers at the event in a segment which aired almost two-weeks after pride took place.

He asks one man, dressed in a flamboyant costume “are you out of the closet?”, and goes on to ask another: “Are you sure you don’t like girls?”

Speaking to a state Assembly Member, he says his “pants are a little tight”.

O’Reilly made an apology last year, after he suggested there was a link between homosexuality and paedophilia.

O’Reilly has changed his stance on same-sex marriage several times, last March claiming there were ‘no strong arguments’ against it, and that proponents had done a “credible job” of arguing their case.
