Megyn Kelly found herself in the middle of this career ending crisis

Megyn Kelly is once again at the center of a massive controversy.

She’s had numerous gaffes since moving to NBC.

But this could be the worst crisis of her career.

Kelly got in hot water on a recent broadcast when she claimed it was normal for kids when she was growing up to dress up in blackface for Halloween.

The NBC host was in the middle of a segment discussing the oppressive political correctness that now governs Halloween.

Kelly had been attacking social justice warriors who claim anyone who dresses up in a Mexican or Native American Indian costume is guilty of “cultural appropriation.

But when she moved on to blackface everything hit the fan.

Journalists and social media users attacked Kelly for claiming white people dressing up in blackface was not a racist costume.

Kelly new she was in trouble and sent an email to NBC staff apologizing.

Then she went on the air the next day and delivered a tearful on-camera apology.

You can watch her full remarks below.

Many observers think Kelly wants to go back to Fox News.

NBC anchors normally do not attack politically correct liberals.

But Kelly stepped in it when she moved on to blackface.

We will keep you up-to-date on any new developments in this ongoing story.

  1. Well Well! I never thought I was being mean and nasty toward the Black race when I did a darling tap dance with black face. My mother thought it would be cute and my dance teacher went along with it. I received lots of good comments. Of course that was a different time. I am 81 years old and today I have several close black friends. My children had black friends who were always welcome in my home. My gosh Kelly’s comments did not cause me any heartburn! She should not have to apologize!

    • I agree wholeheartedly! At the time I thought it was ridiculous she got fired and she certainly doesn’t owe anyone an apology!

  2. I’m very busy! I’m almost thirty years old pro-life and pro-family relatively young woman and mother of six minors, six small children. I will never stay home on Election Day. I will go vote on this Election Day in November sixth too. I don’t vote pro-abortion and pro-homosexual Democrats and Republicans. I vote every election against these murders of the unborn children, sodomy, feminism, gender ideology and the Democratic Party. I’m going to vote and will vote only just for pro-life and pro-family Republicans. The so-called Democratic Party is the extreme ultra-leftist Neomarxist party. The so-called Democratic Party wants ultra-leftist Neomarxist dictatorship in the USA! Politicians and supporters of the Democratic Party are Neomarxist extremists and the so-called Democratic Party is the extreme ultra-leftist Neomarxist party. Their pro-abortion and pro-sodomy agenda isn’t the agenda of the American people. This is agenda of the Democratic Communist Party U.S.A. and they will say or do anything to obstruct the Trump Administration. The Democratic Party and so-called Democrats want stand for anything that will harm the country in their quest to transform the United States into a totalitarian communist state. President Donald Trump is doing wonderful job of trying to do his best to clean up the mess of last administration! Remember this, a vote for a Democratic Party is a vote for ultra-leftist pro-abortion and pro-sodomy Communism. Vote pro-life and pro-family Republicans!! The Democratic Party and so-called Democrats want to control your life, tell you what you need to hear, what to do and tell you how to live. Unfortunately some people are just too stupid to know the truth and their ignorant gullable minds are of the sheep nature, being more than willing to be led to a slaughter by the filthy dirty ultra-leftist wing ultra-liberal Neomarxist dogs. Please everybody, vote Republican and save this good Country! God bless America, the American People and President Donald Trump!

  3. Kelly can kiss my a** – However, on THIS subject, I agree with her 100%…As a kid, maybe the cheapest costume was taking a cork, burning the end and applying (once cooled) it to my face. No harm was intended to offend anyone. NOW, THE NUTS are running the asylum and EVERYTHING must be RE-LEARNED for Political Correctness sake. This is what happens when liberals have an overwhelming say in things. I happen to be of Norwegian, German decent. I don’t refer to ME as Norwegian/German I refuse to call negroes African Americans – UNLESS they were born in Africa. I’m an AMERICAN, born and raised here and proud of it. I honestly believe that 99% of America’s negro population feels the same. BTW, there is nothing racist by using the word ‘negro’ any more than referring to me as a Caucasian. Negros are 100% my equal across the board.

  4. I just recently shared a post on Facebook. It was just a “sign” that said, “I don’t carry a concealed weapon to force my views on anyone. I carry a concealed weapon to prevent anyone from forcing their views on me.”

  5. Another situation where someone thinks their bigger than their ego. Meghan Kelly was a star because she was a reporter on Fox News. Being good but also having a sympathetic audience made her into the big time. She took her fame to a TV station that hated her guts. Eventually, they got her. She’s rich now but back to where she started. Fame can be a fleeting thing just ask Bill O’Reilly.

  6. Blacks have become no more than white lib males and feminazis in “blackface”. Whiney, weak constant victims that are offended for the sake of being offended.

  7. These liberal networks like MSNBC, CNN, CBS and ABC are stupid and ignorant! Go ahead and pay Kelly her $69 million dollars and hire someone else and pay them another $69 million. All just because she stated she and her childhood friends dressed in blackface when they were young! Ludicrous and asinine!!

    • I do not see nothing wrong with what she said only you wigged out,sissified libaral stupid idiots could find fault with what was said.

    • I’m not a Mervyn fan either & I’m a black American…this was how many years ago? Much ado about ABSOLUTELY nothing.

      Liberals are so ignorant as are those who waste time watching those fake news networks. A bunch of brainless talking heads. Anyone who may have been insulted by that comment are career “race card” idiots. Wait did mad max waters or not so sharp sharpton have a comment about that statement.

      Stop the mindless tearful😧apologizing, say what you mean & mean. You said it, it’s a done deal. Grow up people, grow up.

      • It’s too bad some people can’t mature and realize that copying someone is the sincerest form of flattery!! Anyone who hates blacks would never dress up like one. This political correct stuff is just kindergarten behavior by people who have no self esteem!!

  8. I, too, am not crazy about Megyn Kelly & I stopped liking her when she was with Fox News & asked Donald Trump a ridiculously liberal question. I was happy to see her leave Fox & settle in with NBC. I thought that is where she should be. But, I watched a couple of her shows and they were trivial drip & not worthy of my time. Then when I heard about the Blackface I tended to agree with her. I am 73 years old & we dressed up in Blackface at Halloween. It was not done to be mean or derogatory towards the race but as show of being proud and honored to have black friends. Our school even had a Black Musical where the band director, superintendent, principal, & teachers were Blackface & sang & danced. It was very entertaining & good clean fun. It was a money making project to send a group somewhere on a field trip. The liberal thinking and politically correctness needs to go – – seems there is no fun in anything anymore. Always someone complaining about someone else. In this instance I do NOT think she should have lost her job or even been reprimanded.

    • Thank you for your honesty. Its so refreshing to hear a little (un)common sense injected into this pitifully politically-correct society. Just wish there was a way for everyone outside this blog to hear \ read you thought s on this.

  9. I have freckles. I’ve had them all of my life. Who do I contact if someone comes to my door on Halloween with fake freckles on their face? I will need a really good lawyer. Is Avenatti available?

  10. All of the “thin skinned” people, out there, are chronically “irrational”, bordering on INSANE – -I’d be willing to bet a week’s pay, if black people went out in “whiteface”, for Halloween, not a SINGLE WORD would ever be spoken. Talk about delusion idiots! I am a WHITE WOMAN and. frankly, I wouldn’t GIVE A DAMN if they did,

  11. I think that by now we should all realize the people who are true racists are the ones who scream RACIST every time someone mentions anything at all that can be connected to the word BLACK.

  12. When I was 6yrs old in 1943 and was in the 1st grade , I was in a play called Little Black Sambo, I was one of the three lions. Im 81 now and remember that so well, it was alot of fun then. What a shame what our country has come to and the fault of the Democrap liberals. Can you imagine what could accomplish if these morons would not resist and help this country to grow. What a pity what we have stooped to.

  13. When the liberals want you out they want you out and no matter what you do or say you are gonna be out. They wanted her out and guess what people, she is out. My question to the liberals is why is it OK for the white mask used for “Jason” OK? That is about as racist as one can get. Telling the world that a white person is a horrible, deplorable, terrorist. Oh, I better be careful or hille will say I am plagiarizing her. Give all this a rest and allow people (ALL) people to just be themselves. We do not have to agree on anything but surely we as Americans can get along or has the true terrorist finally achieved what they wanted and that is to drive a wedge between the American people. What a SAD day in our history if we have any of that left….

  14. I am not a fan of Megyn, but this is STUPID. If I wanted to dress up like Aunt Jemima for Halloween, I have every right to do so (and I am sure most everyone would find me doing so to be funny). This PC crap is getting ridiculous!

    • I’m with you Ben! Oh, and it’s more than ok for non-white students to play white roles in school plays in the name of cultural diversity. Only when it benefits everyone except the white kids. I am so sick of this crap!

  15. Poor Megan. She is let go by NBC but she keeps the 69,000,000 dollars of her 3 year contract. Don’t you wish we could all retire like that?

  16. May have ended her $20 million a year career at NBC but…ironclad air-tight no outs contract…NBC will send her packing with the remaining $69 million. Not bad for no days work…!

  17. What crime did she commit in relating what she and her neighbors were guilty of (according to the politically correct thought police) in the days of her youth? Political correctness is a relatively new disease.

  18. Never apologize for exercising your right to free speech. Everyone has an opinion and everyone has the right to put it out there. You don’t have to like it and others don’t have to like what you have to say, SO WHAT! Just go pffft and move on for crying out loud. Every time one is offended and they put pressure you to join the ranks of the PC, it takes one more piece of you away. I consider myself a free thinker and I will not let anyone infringe on that. I do not think Megan Kelly intended to hurt anyone. Take away the power of PC and start thinking for ourselves or we will be nothing more than a pack of robots with no souls.

    • You are soooo right. being “offended” is very juvenile!! As for the black face – imitation is the sincerest form of admiration, or so I was always taught. I think instead of being “offended”, those who spoke against her statement should be flattered that she thought highly enough of blacks to imitate them. These people need to get a life!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • If you have a show on TV, the listeners and your boss have to like what you are doing or you will be looking for another job. You got the job because your boss thought his listeners would like what you do and keep listening. If they don’t, it will cost the company lots of money because advertisers will not waste their money advertising on a show that is losing listeners. It’s not like working for yourself. Megyn did the same thing on Fox. That’s why she is not still on Fox. When you work for someone else, they make the rules and you follow them or you will be out and someone else will have your job. That’s the way it is and that’s the way it should be. If they pay you to do something and you don’t, it’s goodbye.

    • I agree. For once she started to sound like one of us. That’s all it takes anymore to be silenced, fired, kicked out of restaurants, chased down, bullied or harassed.

  20. Not sure what it is if we see Halloween Afro wigs in Wal Mart stores. Cultural appropriation is a form of communist rule. We can’t permit this oppression to flourish in our country. We already have some issues with the Washington Redskins logo.

    Cultural appropriation kills freedom. End it now.

  21. Each legal citizen of USA should make every decision based on what is right for the USA and its citizens as a whole-not on race or office. Our forefathers fought for equal rights under the laws of this nation. Up holding our laws has to be each individuals duty as an American. We have to hold onto our freedoms and our rights under our constitution.

  22. Welcome to the United States of the Offended, where people can murder, rape, steal, and embezzle and receive light sentences, but a reporter can lose her job over recalling things that happened over 20 years ago! Ludicrous is not strong enough a word to describe the way liberals react to ordinary situations. A professor stomps on an American Flag in front of his classroom of student and these same liberals say nothing! A horde of migrants burns an American flag and calls the President the “antichrist” and these same liberals welcome these migrants warmly! The hypocrisy is as thick as homemade butter.

    • The Democrats/all liberals are totally nutz. The mainstream media is nuts too. I am with Megan Kelley on this one. She meant nothing, just relating about dressing up for Halloween. They must have been looking for any excuse to get rid of her. I can take her or leave her – but NBC sucks.

    • YES the Democrats want to change America and Obama did a good job of it . No doubt he created a new wave of Racism in this Country not to mention the illegal corruption of his Administration. It is disgraceful. There is no doubt that they are trying everything they can to get into office to impeach President Trump. Whether one likes him or not, no one should disagree that since his Presidency he has worked hard for all Americans. NO one expected him to achieve so many promises. Kelly’s comments are not racist in my book. This is ridiculous and all coming from the Left.
