Fox News contributor Jennifer Rubin made the rounds on Thursday to discuss how the fashion industry has responded to the election.
Fox Business anchor Maria Bartiromo, who moderated the discussion, asked Rubin what her take was on the political climate in the industry, given that there’s been some negative coverage about the fashion brands.
“It’s a lot more polarized,” Rubin said.
“It’s really sad, because it’s not just a negative story anymore.
There are so many different perspectives and you’re hearing about how the brands are being attacked and how they’re being targeted.””
There’s no room for any sort of division.
I mean, there are a lot of different people,” she added.
“I’m not going to talk about what the next year will look like.
I think there’s going to be a lot going on.
But I think the point is, there’s a ton of positive energy.”
Rubin, who is married to former Fox News host Bill O’Reilly, said the industry is now trying to figure out how to respond to what’s been happening.
“I don’t think it’s going away.
I don’t see any major industry players changing their minds,” she said.”
There is definitely a sense of unease and a sense that there are no options, but there are some people who are still really committed to trying to make things work.”
A number of retailers, including Macy’s and Forever 21, have already pulled their ads from the Fox News Channel, saying they won’t pull their ads because of the election results.
The New York Times reported on Thursday that Macy’s was considering pulling ads from Fox News after a petition from Trump supporters called for it to stop airing its ad campaign featuring a Trump image.
The company has not commented on the move.
“If you are a company that has been attacked by Donald Trump, I would urge you to reconsider,” the company’s CEO, Terry Lundgren, told CNNMoney.
“He has no place on our platform.
And it’s something that we are going to keep doing.”
Macy’s is one of several companies that have not pulled ads from The Fox News channel since its announcement on Nov. 2.
