The development comes after FNC condemned remarks  Pirro made last Saturday that seemed to question the national loyalty of Minnesota’s Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar and other Muslim women who wear hijabs.

Referring to Omar, who is a practicing Muslim, Pirro said: “Think about it — Omar wears a hijab. Is her adherence to this Islamic doctrine indicative of her adherence to Sharia law, which in itself is antithetical to the United States Constitution?”

As Deadline previously reported , Fox immediately distanced itself from Pirro’s comments.

“We strongly condemn Jeanine Pirro’s comments about Rep. Ilhan Omar,” the network said in a statement last weekend. “They do not reflect those of the network and we have addressed the matter with her directly.”

Omar thanked Fox for its statement, tweeting Monday , “Thank you, @FoxNews. No one’s commitment to our constitution should be questioned because of their faith or country of birth.”
