With a name like O'Reilly, you can assume that someone has Irish roots of some kind.

One famous face that Irish people don't seem to want to claim, however, is former Fox News presenter and political commentator Bill O'Reilly

O'Reilly was fired from the network last year after it had come to light that he had paid almost $50 million to six women to settle sexual harassment claims over the years; since then, he has presented the 'No Spin News' podcast.

However, he's currently in Ireland tracing his roots and specifically visited Cavan, "where [his] ancestors were evicted from their land in 1845" - and he's not getting the usual Irish welcome on Twitter, not least because of his insistence on political point-scoring with the 'legally' reference.
