Megyn Kelly was on thin ice at NBC.
She made comments on the air about Halloween costumes that liberals pounced on as racist.
And then on Thursday she walked into work and got the bad news she was dreading.
Kelly found herself in trouble when she appeared to be defending white people dressing up in blackface for Halloween.
The New York Post reports:
Megyn Kelly is out at NBC following controversial comments she made about blackface this week, a source told Page Six.
It took just 48 hours for Kelly to be cut from the network.
During a panel discussion on “Megyn Kelly Today” on Tuesday with Jenna Bush Hager, Jacob Soboroff and Melissa Rivers, Kelly said, “You do get in trouble if you are a white person who puts on blackface for Halloween, or a black person who puts on whiteface for Halloween. Back when I was a kid, that was okay just as long as you were dressing as a character.”
The former Fox News host, 47, apologized to her staff in an email later that day and on Wednesday, she made a public apology on-air.
NBC staff was outraged.
Colleagues fired off angry tweets.
Kelly apologized by email and on camera the next day.
But it was not enough to save her job.
NBC News President Andy Lack fired her.
