A Fox news anchor was back on the air Tuesday night following a 2-day suspension for calling MSNBC host Rachel Maddow an "angry young man" on Facebook.
Tricia Macke, an anchor for Ohio's Fox 19, took to her personal Facebook page last month to rant against the cable news personality, writing "Rachel Maddow is such an angry young man" on Oct. 12.
She was quickly criticized by her Facebook followers, who compared the comment to making racist jokes.
"I am sorry," Macke wrote to one such fan. "I should have said antagonistic."
