Hyundai said in a statement Tuesday it will remove its upcoming advertising on O'Reilly's show, citing the "recent and disturbing allegations". The automaker said it wants to partner with companies and programming that share its values of inclusion and diversity.
Men's apparel company Untuckit said it was told by its media buyer to "reallocate our ad dollars to other shows" while the situation is monitored.
"The call for action comes after a New York Times report stated Fox News" parent company 21st Century Fox or O'Reilly paid $13 million to five women to settle cases where the women alleged inappropriate behavior by O'Reilly.
The New York Times reported on Sunday that Fox News political commentator Bill O'Reilly has hired Fabiani as a crisis communications consultant, tasked with issuing statements to the newspaper on O'Reilly's behalf. That seems to suggest that Mercedes-Benz could be the only one to actually cut ties with The O'Reilly Factor, but these other companies will most likely be watching Mercedes closely to see if it really ends up benefitting from this move.
Bloom, meanwhile, said she wasn't buying the claim from O'Reilly's camp that Walsh was dropped from his show because his ratings went down whenever she appeared.
O'Reilly said over the weekend he is vulnerable to lawsuits from people who threaten to cause him bad publicity unless they get paid.

The network retained Paul Weiss' law firm for an internal investigation after Roger Ailes resigned following sexual-harassment allegations leveled by several former Fox News employees a year ago.
Julie Roginsky also said in her lawsuit filed in NY state court that a misogynistic culture at Fox News, a unit of Twenty-First Century Fox Inc, had not changed since Ailes resigned previous year in the wake of a separate sexual harassment lawsuit by former anchor Gretchen Carlson.
The lawsuit names Ailes, Shine and Fox News as defendants. Roginsky alleges she was denied promotions when she refused sexual advances from Ailes.
Susan Estrich, a lawyer for Mr Ailes, said Ms Roginsky's allegations were "total hogwash". Co-host Jedediah Bila said that she believes there won't be any accountability because Fox News is a money-making enterprise and O'Reilly their cash-cow.
