Fox News’ Shepard Smith closed Friday evening’s “FOX Report” with a verbal assault on British Petroleum CEO Tony Hayward and Hayward’s recent comments made to English press, TVNewser reports.

Smith, who grew up in the Gulf Coast state of Mississippi, said, “If you think the people of the gulf region and the rest of America will take lying down without a fight a poorly handled aftermath of what your company has done to our gulf and our people, you are horribly mistaken.” TVNewser has the video.

Meanwhile, Mike Williams, a Transocean employee who survived the deadly blast on the Deepwater Horizon gave an interview to “60 Minutes,” which aired last night, in which he details a time-line leading up to and after the blast.
