Megyn Kelly’s NBC show canceled after ‘blackface’ comments

It looks as if the tables have turned for Megyn Kelly as her own colleagues and fans have turned against her labeling her a racist after her recent 'blackface' remarks.


It appears television show host Megyn Kelly’s karma came back to bite her on Friday when NBC News pulled her show Megyn Kelly Today from their network lineup altogether after Kelly defended the use blackface as a Halloween costume on-air Tuesday.

And when I say that Kelly’s karma “came back” I mean it. Don’t forget in 2017 she viciously attacked Infowars founder and frontman Alex Jones over comments he made while wargaming a scenario on-air years ago.

Critics have been tough on Kelly over her blackface comments and although Kelly apologized by saying she was “sorry” the apology didn’t go very far and many have now labeled Kelly a racist.

It all started when Kelly asked during the 9 a.m. hour on Tuesday: “Do you get in trouble if you are a white person and puts on a blackface for Halloween or a black person that puts on a white face for Halloween?”

“When I was a kid that was okay as long as you were dressed up as like a character,” she explained.

The once popular T.V. host’s remarks have now put her three-year $69 million dollar deal in jeopardy and there is no telling which way it could all go for Kelly.

To boot, this isn’t the first time Kelly has found herself in hot water over racial comments. In 2013 while hosting a Fox News segment about Santa Claus Kelly made clear to “kids watching at home” that “Santa is white.”

“And by the way, for all of you kids watching at home Santa is white,” she explained.

As for this week, Megyn Kelly’s apology was not enough to save her already failing show or to keep her employed at NBC.

Tough break.
