    A Fox news anchor was back on the air Tuesday night following a 2-day suspension for calling MSNBC host Rachel Maddow an "angry young man" on Facebook.

    Tricia Macke, an anchor for Ohio's Fox 19, took to her personal Facebook page last month to rant against the cable news personality, writing "Rachel Maddow is such an angry young man" on Oct. 12.

    She was quickly criticized by her Facebook followers, who compared the comment to making racist jokes.

    "I am sorry," Macke wrote to one such fan. "I should have said antagonistic."

    Commenters then took issue with the fact that the anchor did not acknowledge that her choice of words in calling Maddow a "man" was offensive.

    "I knew what I was saying," Macke responded.

    The exchange, which was since removed from her Facebook page, was captured in screengrabs posted by GLAAD, which launched a petition in partnership with Equality Ohio calling on Fox 19 to condemn Macke's remark.

    "Why must you be such an angry young man
    When your future looks quite bright to me
    How can there be such a sinister plan
    That could hide such a lamb, such a caring young man

    You're fooling yourself if you don't believe it
    You're kidding yourself if you don't believe it
    Get up, get back on your feet
    You're the one they can't beat and you know it
    Come on, let's see what you've got
    Just take your best shot and don't blow it"
    Styx
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    It's certainly offensive. I was once an angry young man, and I am outraged that anyone would compare me to Maddow.

    I'm getting a little annoyed that they keep calling these people Fox News anchors. They are no more Fox News anchors as Jim Gardner is an anchor for ABC News.

    Technically, no, but she's the closest thing to one on that network.

    I thought Madcow was a lesbian.....wouldn't calling it a man be a compliment?

    I'm kind of tired of watching employers punish employees for free speech that occurs outside of the job.

    It came as a surprise to me too.
