Megyn Kelly

Megyn Kelly was noticeably missing from her NBC morning talk show on Thursday -- just days after the public uproar over her question about wearing blackface for Halloween.

The controversy ensued during a segment on Halloween costumes on "Megyn Kelly Today" on Tuesday. Kelly asked if blackface was acceptable if a child wore a costume portraying a Black character.

Kelly expressed sympathy for a character in "Real Housewives of New York" who wore blackface makeup as part of a Diana Ross costume.

The former Fox News anchor was red-faced after her seemingly innocent question became fodder for other talk shows on Tuesday.

Public outrage boiled over despite the talk show host offering a sincere apology on Tuesday and again during her show on Wednesday morning.

When NBC aired a repeat of her show on Thursday the rumors swirled that Kelly's poorly-rated show was canceled or she was suspended.

An NBC spokeswoman confirmed Thursday that the network planned to air repeats of Kelly's show on Thursday and Friday. The spokeswoman did not say whether Kelly or her show would return on Monday.

    Kick her out....bring Tamron Hall back.....case closed.

  • EyeknowUcare

    How'bout a round of applause *in my Rhi voice*

  • sunni_daze

    This show was already on the chopping block due to low ratings all she did was rush the burial.

  • Ryan

    Dumb redneck doing dumb redneck things. Anyway I wonder how many more bombs they're gonna fine? This is all surreal and yet somehow not surprising at the same time.

  • Alextra Ballard

    Total Karma...Tamron laffin her asz off

  • EMILY POST

    Seems like the Hollywood controlled Media SMoke and mirrors trick... USING black Americans once again to oust white people they wanted to get rid of anyway. Good ole Switch .... Democrats are great with that one. It takes the pressure off of them and directs everything to blacks.

  • Yoni7

    She got real comfortable, huh? Never watched her show. Don't know/care who she is. But JUDGING by looks......I'on't like the bish.

  • Alextra Ballard

    Meghan Kelly came from home,where the white Racist roam. FOX NEWS. They knew exactly what they were doing when they hire her. Sprew more hatred. As for her being fired. ..seeing is believing.

  • queen of cups

    Yessss My brother is a cameraman at a TV station in Birmingham and he said there is this "unspoken thing" in news that black female journalist/anchors are "trusted more"

  • KLove

    So never in the history of Earth, has a black person dressed up as a white character for Halloween, complete with makeup and all???

    When can we as a people get this racial chip off our shoulders.....everything aint racist. If a white person wants to dress as a black character (Black Panther, etc), then I am fine with it, as long as its done tastefully....but dont come in blackface dressin like Sambo etc.....then that would be a problem for me.

  • cherrypie

    Saw on another site that the show will end in December. She'll be fine. White priviledge at best. Trust. She wont starve her last contract was worth at least 20 million. She'll prolly go right back to Fox News sprewing hatred like the rest of them.

  • Judge Mental Will

    I heard people say worst and not get fired. They over paid her to come to the network and now that her ratings low they're having regrets. She finally gave a reason for them to get rid of her. Thats what they get for letting go of the black lady everyone loved.

  • Alextra Ballard

    I a so sick of Meghan...she should've been gon..she's not stewpit...therefore she knows Blackface is racist,all day, every day

  • cherrypie

    Auntie, can you post the story about Pooch Hall getting charged with Felony Child Abuse and facing 6 years in prison?? So disappointed in Derwin.

  • Candance

    I dont care for her, but to her point, it is Halloween, calm down!

  • KcoolMuziq

    I'll NEVER get over NBC replacing Prince's best friend Tamron Hall & Al Roker's talk show for boring Megan Kelly.

    KARMA!

  • Guest

    Goodt.

  • samuel severino

    Exactly. Her ratings were extremely low but they couldn’t fire her because of the way her contract was written. Now she just gave them the perfect excuse they needed to kick her to the curb.

  • ohdearme

    A "sincere" apology? Ummm nope it wasn't sincere in the least when she started going on about how "we" are divided as a nation and there's been so much hurt? Say what now? FOH this bytch tried it, it's the same thing as saying "I'm sorry IF I hurt your feelings"? You obviously know you hurt my feelings bytch so just say SORRY I hurt your feelings. She's been an awkward mess ever since the show aired, you know when old a@@ Jane Fonda gets in your a@@ about your poor interviewing skills, you ain't sh!t!

  • Knocked Kneed and Pigeon Toed

    OH WOW!!!

    That happened in early October and she did make that post. I think you can search his name and find it.

  • samuel severino

    No. She burned her bridges at Fox. They offered her more money to renew at Fox but she was feeling herself and said no. Then she had to scramble and save face by signing a deal w NBC that was worse. Not to mention that she was a total b*tch behind the scenes.

  • samuel severino

    Ding ding ding.

  • Mark mcharm

    I have seen white people with sense dress like a prince so that blackface bs is dumb and ignorant .

  • Solstice

    Lmao!! Evelyn is my spirit animal. And we’re both Sagittarius. Her facial expressions are so on point! ??

  • cherrypie

    Didnt she file sex harrassment charges against the head of Fox or something?? Yeah she wont be welcomed back.

  • cherrypie

    I know she did. Maybe I should have said an updated post. He was arrested a few weeks ago for driving drunk, crashing his car, and letting his 2-year-old son take the wheel. He was acutally charged just yesterday with Felony Child Abuse and a DUI and is now facing 6 years in prison.

  • Rere

    They love disrespecting black people, then give " an apology"..that's why I said "Stop teaching black kids to forgive white people for the racist things they say & do"

  • No Love Lost

    Good. F# her.

  • Bonita

    Or accessories.

  • dontgetblocked

    Go back and study the history of blackface.

  • dontgetblocked

    Meghan should have stayed with FOX News but she jumped on the #Metoo bandwagon and took a deal with NBC. She added sass and smart female perspective. She was a perfect fit for FOX. NBC... not so much.

  • dontgetblocked

    She was in line to take Bill O'Reilly's place but she burned those bridges.

  • SumthinSweeter

    Yes. Keep it coming. Let all these racist keep outing themselves. Apologies not needed or accepted.

  • Soda

    Smart female perspective? Megyn seriously stated that Santa Claus is white. But what am I telling you for, you most likely believe the same.

  • WhoKnew

    Good for the network for canceling her show. You can't mess with the network's revenue, beach house and private jet money and still expect to keep your Y.O.B.

  • dontgetblocked

    Santa Claus is not real. BTW, I only buy black Santa Claus figures. She's white. What do you expect her to say. He's Asian? Native American? Hispanic?

  • ATL21

    Speak for yourself

  • tia

    That's good for her. From the get-go, NBC had no business bringing her on board. And they attempted to screw Tamron in the process. God don't like ugly. NBC thought they were doing something and it turnt out to be a bust!

  • MrsSpice1

    Im so sick of these overrly fqn sensitive loosers in this world crying over stupid irrelevant non factor things!!!! Im “Black” and felt nothing she said disrespectful her or Roseanne!!!! Ruining these ppls income over stupid sht that doesnt mean nothing!!! Im sure what she meant as blackface was seeing ppl dress up as a characger or a famous person that is black!!!!! Which many BLACKS and other races do specifically on halloweeen and other occasional and in LIFE PERIOD!! Ppl crying over everything now!! Thats why i kind of hate social media it gave tooo many bored miserable sensitive over thinkin mofos a voice!! And trust most of YOU dont need to be heard let your brain deal with ur pathetic misery! Im no fan of hers but i do NOT think she meant any harm in what she said!! i dont think she was referring to black face as in the jiggaboo makeup whites wore to pretend to be black idiots!!! Some of u dummies listen to degrading self hating music that deliberately demeans us a race and bs and still call each other the n word but get all tight kver these white folks and what they say!! Sometimes i cant stand black ppl!

  • Mz_Opinionated

    I don't know why you're sharing this...Folks on this site thinks Stacey Abrams is too fat to run. And believe me that is NOT me saying that. Folks on here were saying she needed to lose weight, can't dress, xyz. So maybe the folks that were commenting on her weight don't care about her votes going to someone else.

  • MrsSpice1

    Oh shut up! ?

  • tia

    Go shoot yourself!

  • Judge Mental Will

    The worst part is all other shows was higher in the Ratings and she was making double and triple of others salaries. Smh. They have to pay her according to her contract.

  • jade

    She probably knew exactly what she was doing and did it deliberately to bring attention to her show.

  • FukkFolks2018

    The issue is Megyn stated that she did not see how blackface is racist. The issue with your comment is you don’t see how blackface is racist.

    The issue with Roseanne is she called a black woman a monkey and lied and said she thought she was white. The issue with your comment is you don’t see how calling a black woman a monkey and Roseanne lying about it…is racist.

    You take issue with what you want. Tis your right. But I don’t give a good gatd#@$ about the white man or their money. In this instances…these cave demon whores and their money.

  • FukkFolks2018

    FDB. The end.

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    Bye barbie. I’m sure Fake news and foe can find her a position somewhere. Her and tammy laurie can have a show together about their struggles as cold evil white power nazis barbies. Shoo long face

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    Factssssss

  • Nikki

    Tamron Hall should have had that spot, but they gave it to a person who insists that Jesus and Santa are white. Kick rocks Meg...you should have never left Fox.

  • RICHIE_RICH

    So she’s the lady that replace Tamron?

  • Peppermint Patty

    Dont even engage or be bothered she must be that little girl from dr phil who just came to terms with her race....

  • Peppermint Patty

    Ruin incomes? These people have seen millions....they'll be aight....

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Chris Christie served as governor of NJ for 2 terms and was obese the whole time...then he even tried running for president. I didn't see anybody telling him he was too fat to run.

  • RICHIE_RICH

    Hey Teasure ??

  • Peppermint Patty

    Ok, so I absolutely love the way that Sandra writes heheheee "a character from "Real Housewives of New York" " snickers incessantly....

  • Soda

    I expected her to say Santa Claus is a fictional character who could be any color anyone imagines him to be. But she seems to believe he's real, as she said that he is white (as is Jesus) without a doubt, as if nothing can differ from what she had been taught as a child.

  • Ghost

    She was a BAD fit for NBC from the beginning! She is phony, a liar and word on the street is that none of the TODAY show folks like her! In my opinion she brought NOTHING to the table! She's always butting heads with her co workers with her beliefs and opinions which are always borderline racist. She is stated that in her lifetime black face WAS NOT considered racist! She is 47 years old and wants to pretend that she didn't know blackface was considered demeaning and racist! FOH

  • FranziaRed

    You don't know me Dubb but I LOVE YOU!!! (going on 10 years)
    But I'm out of the garden on a daily lately, its just too much :"(

  • Applebootay

    GOODT!

  • Logan Roberts

    Welp she always seems emotionless anyways ?. Megyn can go home and cry over the rest of her millions with her cold self.

  • dru and neil

    I may feel sorry for her if she wasn’t getting exactly what she deserves, but really this is out of control. Do people not know what black face actually is? Because the chick from RHONY wasn’t in blackface. Then Meghan Kelly asked what’s wrong with dressing up as Diana Ross, the answer is nothing. There wasn’t anything wrong with the costume, the woman’s skin was not painted black. Now, a couple years ago, Julienne Hough purposely darkened her face with brown make up when she wanted to dress as “Crazy Eyes” on OITNB, which is considered blackface. A white woman with a bad tan is not in blackface. If that’s the case the whole damn cast of Jersey Shore was in blackface. I think this is just a reason to cancel the crappy show.

  • FukkFolks2018

    They are talking about giving Meg $69 MILLION US AMERICAN DOLLARS to get the hayle on. She will BE OKAY

  • Mz_Opinionated

    I'm in agreement with you. I never said anything. I thought it was foolish of all the comments about her weight from jump...but maybe that's just ME :-)

  • FukkFolks2018

    I love you too. I DO recall your log in name. It IS a lot. God bless you.

  • tia

    yes, she's the one

  • ThatGirlinJersey

    Young lady, I feel your pain. I really do. However, how many definitions of "blackface" are there? I'm sure, as a Fox reporter, she's seen photos of the hundreds of Caucasian coeds, who have adorned blackface, as part of a costume. I ask you, "Were those young people also innocents?" Would it be innocent if one of your co-workers wore blackface, as part of his or her costume, in your presence?

    I agree that we, as African Americans, can be extremely "sensitive", as you say. However, isn't the question, why? We AAs have faced institutional racism for centuries. If that's not enough to make you "sensitive", I don't know what is. So perhaps, a little empathy is in order.

  • tia

    lol!! Thanks so much! That's why I went ahead and blocked.

  • HoneyyGoodMoneyy_
  • Wreckognize Game

    Yes Ma'am. NBC spent too much getting her and she fizzled out when she got there. She is just giving them a good reason to put on that pink slip.

  • TRUTHbeabsolute

    They were tired of her anyway. I tried to watch her show and she just comes off as a cold and fake woman. Her show was terrible and whoever thought to put her on the network should be out too. On top of that the pay she was receiving was OUTRAGEOUS! It's just sad that they are using her blackface comments to do it. They most certainly knew her ideology prior to hiring her.

  • Wreckognize Game

    She's gone. NEW post up top

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld
  • Enoughsaid2020

    She will back on some conservative bias station, and they will pay her millions in speaking engagements. Glad she is gone!

    I don't like her. She isn't relatable. Good riddance.

  • Alicia.Ashe

  • Karmen

    I stopped watching the today when they canned Tamron.

  • Karmen

    She tore her drawers there too. Her co-workers hated her at Fox as well. She might be sitting for awhile.

    I know about blackface dear (took a class in rhetoric at CSU--- got a A) , but understanding context of situations is important too. ;) Dressing up as Diana Ross for Halloween doesn't fit that narrative of blackface to me... (speaking for myself as I was asked to do) lol
