Black Santa Came Early: Megyn Kelly Reportedly Working on Exiting NBC

Megyn Kelly

But of course, Megyn Kelly wouldn't care about that, because she has a long history of saying really bad race-related things, saying sexist things when it was convenient to do so (i.e. when it wasn't about her or her experiences), and the occasional dash of homophobia. No reason for the decision has been given by the talent agency, but insiders suggest that a potential conflict of interest would emerge in the event of a clash between Kelly and the network as CAA also represents the NBC News president, Noah Oppenheim.

The scandal began on Tuesday's show when Kelly said she didn't understand why children couldn't wear blackface if they were dressing for Halloween.

Kelly apologized for the comment in a letter to NBC staff, and later made an on-air apology on Wednesday at the start of her program.

Social media condemnation was swift, and Kelly apologized to fellow NBC staffers in an email later in the day.

Megyn Kelly's lawyer is set to meet with NBC executives on Friday, Mediaite has confirmed, and he's armed with a demand: that Ronan Farrow bear witness to the proceedings.

Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton Basically Just Wore the Same Dress
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are now on a 16-day royal tour that includes stops in Australia, Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand. They stopped in Fiji to refuel en route to Australia and managed to squeeze in a brief engagement.

On Wednesday it was reported that Kelly had fired her agent at Creative Artists Agency after rumours circulated that she might be moving on from her NBC daytime show. She lost her job after making some seriously boneheaded comments on her show two days ago.

Kelly's co-hosts on the main Today show, who present between 7am and 9am before Kelly appears, were heavily critical of her comments. Sources told CNN at the time that "she is unlikely to return" to the 9 a.m. Today hour. There is no other way to put this but I condemn those remarks, there is no place on our air or in this workplace for them.

The reference to political correctness in a discussion about blackface struck some critics as odd, along with the show's cameras panning over the audience giving her a standing ovation for almost 20 seconds. I defended the idea saying as long as it was respectful and part of a Halloween costume, it seemed OK. Suddenly she was off the air, perhaps voluntarily; her staff was allegedly in an uproar about the "toxic environment" on set; she parted ways with her agent; and then the cast of "House of Cards", which was led previous year by yet another longtime #MeToo malefactor, wouldn't appear on her show. "Sometimes I talk, and sometimes I listened, and yesterday I learned. And then people can have more faith in it".

That last part about Jesus really gets me, because if you are going to bring history into it, please let me know how a pre-colonial Middle Eastern man was white?
