Justice with Judge Jeanine, the weekly opinion show hosted by Jeanine Pirro will not air for the second week in a row as the fallout over remarks she made about Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar continue.

Variety reports:
 

The network’s online schedule shows that it will run another repeat of the documentary series “Scandalous” in its place Saturday night at 9 p.m.

Fox News declined to comment and has in recent days said it will not elaborate on what it has called “scheduling changes.” There has been recent speculation that Pirro, a fierce supporter of President Donald Trump, could return to the schedule Saturday, March 30. The president has taken to Twitter to express his support for Pirro’s show.

During her March 9th broadcast, the former New York prosecutor, suggested Minnesota Democrat Ihan Omar, a U.S. representative, did not respect the law set down by the Constitution of the United States. “Is her adherence to this Islamic doctrine indicative of her adherence to Sharia law, which is antithetical to the U.S. Constitution?” Pirro asked. Oman is a Muslim. She has not appeared on Fox News since and has not posted on Twitter since March 10.


Pirro’s absence comes as the network finds itself under increasing attack from left-wing advocacy groups calling for advertisers to pull support from prominent hosts, including Tucker Carlson and Laura Ingraham.
