During a contentious interview with protesters outside the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, Fox News commentator Geraldo Rivera got doused with water.
The Daily Beast’s Andrew Desiderio posted a video clip of the incident on Tuesday afternoon.
The former talk show host was hustled away by his bodyguards as the crowd chanted “Shame! Shame! Shame!”
Rivera has tangled with demonstrators before while reporting live from racially charged protests.
The longtime Fox News contributor spoke out against former Fox anchor Gretchen Carlson‘s sexual harassment suit earlier this month.
Prior to Ailes’ resignation, Rivera wrote on Twitter, “Don’t believe the crap about #RogerAiles. Only ones talking dirt are those who hate #FoxNews & want to hurt network that’s kicking their ass.”
Bizarrely, Rivera attempted to defend Ailes from accusations of sexual harassment by comparing him to the bear that mauled Leonardo diCaprio’s character in the film The Revenant.
“I’ve known him 40 years. He’s about as flirty as the grizzly in #TheRevenant. I stand with Roger Ailes,” he tweeted.

Al Franken warns voters Mitch McConnell ‘is not as charming as he looks’ on HBO’s ‘Real Time’
Former Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) showed off the sense of rumor that put him on "Saturday Night Live" during a Friday night appearance on HBO's "Real Time" with Bill Maher.
The two politically-minded comedians had a fascinating debate on what would happen if President Donald Trump refuses to leave office on January 20, 2021.
Franken said that would be a good thing, as it would mean Trump lost and would be escorted from the premises. Maher, however, had far less faith in America's institutions.
The two agreed to disagree on the topic.
Franken urged viewers to vote for Democrats in Senate races, warning that if Sen. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) remains in power he would block everything a potential Joe Biden administration might try to accomplish.
HBO’s Bill Maher takes on ‘Trump thugs’ and super-spreader rallies in final ‘Real Time’ before the election
HBO "Real Time" host Bill Maher reviewed the latest news on the Friday night before 2020 election.
"Four days until the election," he noted. "As Stormy Daniels once said, 'Let's just get this over with!'"
He noted the huge turnout and said, "the Supreme Court said some of the votes may even be counted."
"Trump has not been this scared of the mail since the draft," he joked.
Maher also took on the "Trump thugs" and counseled voters on an obscene comment they could say to MAGA poll watchers.
The host also discussed Trump's super-spreader events and the COVID-19 outbreak in the White House.
Maddow premieres new ad — narrated by Morgan Freeman — on what this election is about
Academy Award-winning actor Morgan Freeman has narrated a moving new ad for the NAACP urging voters to turn out during the 2020 presidential election.
The ad was broadcast for the first time on "The Rachel Maddow Show" on Friday evening.
"This is Morgan Freeman," the ad began. "I know that many of you were wondering how soon you'll be able to hug your friends again or visit your parents and grandparents without fear. I know that many of you are angered by ongoing racism in our nation and worried about having a job to repay your student loans and afford the basic needs of life."
