Megyn Kelly’s Future At NBC Remains Uncertain As Backlash Continues

The host of ‘Megyn Kelly Today’ on NBC is facing severe backlash over remarks she made on her Tuesday show. She said she saw nothing wrong with people wearing ‘black face costumes for Halloween. The remark was made during her panel discussion that starts the show off. The panel included Kelly, Melissa Rivers, and Jenna Bush Hager, the daughter of President Bush. Kelly started her show on Wednesday morning by apologizing for ‘her insensitive remarks’ she said she’s just learning. The backlash continues to be severe, with many calling for her to be fired.

Even her colleague at NBC, longtime weather man Al Roker said ‘her apology isn’t enough’. An NBC News spokesman announced early Thursday ‘that due to the current controversy Megyn will not be taping the show on Thursday or Friday. A source who wanted to remain anonymous told ‘US Magazine’ that the network has been trying to end Kelly’s show for a while. The reasons are that Kelly is difficult, and this latest snafu gave NBC ‘a gift’. According to a source Kelly is negotiating with NBC at the moment. The former lawyer has a contract, a monetary agreement would have to be agreed upon before Kelly can be terminated.

The panel discussion also included Jacob Soboroff of MSNBC, during the dissuasion he said ‘that type of costume could be viewed as racist.’ Kelly argued during the discussion, “Why is it inappropriate for white people to wear black-face on Halloween. What is racist?”She continued, “When I was a kid, that was OK as long as you were dressing as a character.” Staffers at NBC are not surprised that Kelly said something like that, what surprised them, is that she didn’t reveal her true self sooner. After the Tuesday show aired, Kelly sent an email to all NBC staffers apologizing for her remarks. Kelly left ‘Fox News’ in 2017 to join NBC. She reportedly is earning 18 million dollars per season.
