Apparently, he now has a podcast.

One thing he has been doing is posting photos on Instagram of his very cute corgi Holly.

In fact, his whole Instagram is almost entirely Holly pics. All of the captions are pretty simple.

But for some reason, on Monday, O'Reilly decided to spice up his normal Holly pic by wading into the kneeling debate in the NFL. "Holly would never take a knee during the National Anthem even if she had knees," he wrote on this photo.

He got a lot of reaction on both Instagram and Twitter!

People are mad Holly was being dragged into this debate.

@billoreilly Shut it O'Reilly. Any dog would make a better person than you because they have no concept of bigotry and misogyny.

And many wanted justice for Holly.

TL;DR: It's 2017, so people are yelling at Bill O'Reilly online that his dog is both woke and has knees.
