Taking to social media to seemingly defend the recently-fired Fox News host Bill O’Reilly, Michael Reagan – the son of former President Ronald Reagan – sent a series of tweets about sexual harassment that many have deemed offensive.

Reagan – who serves as the president of the Reagan Legacy Foundation – tweeted early Friday, “Hot Choclare used to be a compliment on your looks today it is called sexual harassment..@oreillyfactor.”

He added in another Tweet, “If women are going to wear low cut dresses that show cleavage don’t be harassed when we men look.Or shld we sue for sexual arousal?”
