Megyn Kelly has been in the press quite a lot this week, due to her blackface comments. On the morning show on NBC, Kelly stated: What is racist? You do get in trouble if you are a white person who puts on blackface on Halloween, or a black person that puts on whiteface for Halloween. Back when I was a kid, that was okay, as long as you were dressing up as, like, a character.”
This statement got received backlash as her name trended on twitter. In response, Kelly went on television and delivered an apology, saying: “I want to begin with two words: I’m sorry,” she said. “I defended the idea, saying as long as it was respectful and part of the Halloween costume, it seemed OK. Well, I was wrong and I am sorry.”
Even though she apologized, that seems to have not been enough. According to Hollywood Reporter, due to the criticism that Kelly is receiving, NBC has decided to not allow her to return to the morning show. This has yet to be confirmed by NBC but it is doubtful that she will return to the show. Megyn Kelly has yet to comment on if she will be still working with NBC.
