Megyn Kelly Apologizes on Her Show for “Black Face” Comments After “Today” Show Attacks Her


NBC’s Megyn Kelly was severely criticized on The Today Show this morning by her colleagues for her “black face” comments on yesterday’s show. Kelly is already loathed by the same colleagues. Her racist statements didn’t help the situation.

This morning Kelly brought on two African American contributors, Roland Martin and Amy Holmes. Kelly stared into the camera, appeared contrite, and issued an apology directly to…someone out there. Who knows? She is clueless, and should be fired.

Holmes tells her: “The point is, I can dress up as Diana Ross for Halloween and you can’t.”

NBC News continues to be tone deaf about Kelly.
