Bill O'Reilly said this:
Specifically, he said, "I couldn't get over the fact that there was no difference between Sylvia's restaurant and any other restaurant in New York City. I mean, it was exactly the same, even though it's run by blacks, primarily black patronship."
He added, "It was like going into an Italian restaurant in an all-white suburb in the sense of people were sitting there, and they were ordering and having fun. And there wasn't any kind of craziness at all. "He also mentioned that there was no one in the restaurant yelling, quote, "M-F-er, I want more iced tea." Fox News responded to this chaos by saying, "This is nothing more than left-wing outlets stirring up false racism accusations for ratings. It's sad."
