The website of a Fox News employee’s son was taken down on Thursday after he posted a photo of himself with the Fox News logo on his profile.
In a statement posted on the site, the Fox Family Trust, a subsidiary of the media company, said it “has been informed by our legal counsel that our website, the website of the former FoxNews.com editor and owner of the website, is being removed from the internet.
We have no reason to believe that this will result in a breach of our Terms of Service.”
The trust said it is taking down the website immediately and the individual who posted the photo has been suspended pending an investigation.
The image of Fox News’s founder and CEO Roger Ailes was taken on a picture of the site’s logo with a caption that read: “It looks like it’s been taken down.”
The site also contained a link to the website’s Facebook page.
Ailes is no longer employed by Fox News and is no stranger to the internet, having written about the rise of social media during a 2013 appearance on “The View.”
Fox News is a news network with a strong social media presence and it is not uncommon for people to post photos and stories to the FoxNews account on a regular basis.
Fox News did not immediately respond to CBC News’ request for comment.
The website was not immediately available for comment Thursday afternoon.
It is the second time this year that Fox News has taken down a website linked to the company.
On April 15, Fox News removed the FoxFamilyTrust website, saying it violated its terms of service.
The site was later restored and is still available to view.
