Megyn Kelly’s Show In Jeopardy After She Defends The Use Of Blackface

Kelly has been under fire for remarks she made on "Megyn Kelly Today" on Tuesday.

Viewers tuning into the NBC morning show Megyn Kelly Today on Thursday morning were greeted by Megyn Kelly from two months ago.

Aside from the morning show, Kelly was brought on to NBC to host a Sunday night news magazine show.

Political analysts have noted Kelly's career has been on a steady decline since she attacked then-candidate Donald Trump during the 2016 election.

Reports that Megyn Kelly is parting ways with NBC after a "blackface" Halloween costume remark have sent Twitter into convulsions. "I learned that given the history of blackface being used in very bad ways by racists in this country it is not okay for that to be part of any costume, Halloween or otherwise".

But Ramos insists the club should stand by their coach, declaring: "Am I going to say that it's madness to fire Lopetegui? ". Los Blancos are now on a five-game winless run in all competitions, losing four times in the process.

A former NBC staffer who worked with Kelly told The Daily Beast that NBC is angry that Kelly called for an independent investigation into the network's handling of Ronan Farrow's reporting on Harvey Weinstein, which never aired. In other words, NBC's $69 million three-year deal with Kelly may not be paying off.

"You truly do get in trouble if you are a white person who puts on blackface at Halloween or a black person who puts on whiteface for Halloween", she added.

But her demonstrations of contrition did little, it seemed, to improve her standing with her colleagues or superiors at the network. Kelly's decision to sit down with Jones received backlash and JPMorgan's chief marketing officer said she was "repulsed" that Kelly gave Jones airtime. The network replaced her live telecast with a pre-taped episode. Not only was she EXTREMELY expensive in terms of salary, her show was extremely expensive for NBC. Furthermore, NBC has long had a policy against having sponsored integration in a news-focused program like The Today Show.

Here's more on that and everything else you need to know about Megyn Kelly's husband, plus if her latest controversy means the end of her time at NBC.

Kelly's arrival at NBC was widely trumpeted as a huge win for the network. Al Roker said that Kelly "owes a bigger apology to folks of color around the country". If people at Fox had issues with Kelly before, imagine how they'd feel if management shoved MacCallum or Bream aside to make room for her. Kelly later got into a dustup with Jane Fonda - by asking her pointedly about her plastic surgery - in what would eventually develop into a monthslong feud.
