Hannity Claims He Didn’t Review Report on ‘Secret Sperm’ in Obama Portrait: ‘Does Not Reflect My Voice’

Fox News host Sean Hannity set the internet ablaze on Tuesday after his website posted an article suggesting that former President Barack Obama’s portrait is jam-packed with “secret sperm.”

The post, which has now been deleted but can be seen here, alleged that a scandal was brewing around the Kehinde Wiley painting of Obama unveiled at the National Portrait Gallery earlier this week.

“The widening scandal surrounding former President Barack Obama’s official portrait continued to swirl on Tuesday, with shocking allegations the artist included ‘secret sperm cells’ within the painting and once joked about ‘Killing Whitey’ during an interview,” the post read.

It went on to claim that “industry insiders” allege that Wiley’s “trademark technique” is the insertion of “sperm within his paintings.”

The post — which bore the very subtle headline “PORTRAIT PERVERSION: Obama Portrait Features ‘SECRET SPERM,’ Artist Joked About ‘Killing Whitey’” — and an accompanying tweet by Hannity promoting it were removed after a backlash.

And Hannity has now responded to the kerfuffle, claiming his “web staff posted content that was not reviewed by me before publication.”

The semen post “does not reflect my voice and message,” he added, “and, therefore, I had it taken down.”
