After more than two decades on Fox News, and serving as the host of The Factor, Bill O'Reilly is kaput. And though his departure was a longtime coming, the official announcement (first made Wednesday) sent Twitter into a natural-born frenzy.
Here are some of our favorite reactions to the announcement of Bill O'Reilly being "let go" from Fox.

Cheer up Bill O'Reilly - there are still many companies that would love to hire you.— John Fugelsang (@JohnFugelsang) April 19, 2017
I mean, no companies that employ women, but still.

Not reading any "Bill O'Reilly Fired" articles unless the subheading is "Into the Cold Void of Space."— Simon Barrett (@Simon_Barrett) April 19, 2017
Sad part is, Bill O'Reilly isn't being fired because he harassed women, it's because we weren't supposed to find out about it.— Kimberly (@Kimistryisfun_) April 19, 2017
And, just for kicks, we're adding this extremely uncomfortable MELTDOWN by Bill O'Reilly live on television.
