NBC Reportedly Cancels Megyn Kelly's Show After She Defended Blackface

NBC Reportedly Cancels Megyn Kelly's Show After She Defended Blackface

On Wednesday, she apologized at length to her NBC studio audience, which rewarded her with a standing ovation. As more of her newsmagazine shows aired, those comments made Kelly look downright delusional.

It was the latest sign that Kelly may never return to the NBC airwaves.

While there was not a reason given for the decision, the talent agency let Kelly go just one-day after she apologized for the comments. The Hollywood Reporter says Freedman is preparing for a "showdown" with NBC on Friday and it is increasingly unlikely Kelly will be able to continue at the network. Al Roker said "she owes a big apology to people of color across the country". In addition, cast members and showrunners from the Netflix drama "House of Cards" had canceled their scheduled appearance on her show.

The Journal reports her future with the network, not just her program, is in doubt.

We've reached out to reps at NBC for comment. In addition, she would provide a boost to election specials and Olympics coverage. Kelly is now fighting over whether the network will pay out her entire $69 million contract, which NBC is set to do unless it can prove that she violated a clause in some way.

NBC Nightly News did a report on her remarks and the social media backlash hours after her broadcast.

So here was a high-rated Fox News personality who was not afraid to challenge Trump and seemed in step with the feminist movement that would later fall under the hashtag #metoo. "It's been educational", Kelly told viewers at the end of the first week. However, the fact that Saint Nicholas of Myra was from what would be considered modern day Turkey is important in a historical context, and so is highlighting racist church institutions' whitewashing problem, but we don't mean terrible brown people are trying to take away your white Santa. "She is not ever coming back", an NBC exec told DailyMail.

Maurizio Sarri: Chelsea fans must respect Jose Mourinho
On Monday, October 22, Mourinho came out to defend Ianni's conduct, saying the youthful coach had apologised for his actions. A mature 1-0 win at West Ham made it the best start to a season for Tottenham in the Premier League era.


#3: Megyn's ratings proved to be so bad that her show dragged down the entire NBC afternoon lineup.

JPMorgan Chase pulled its ads from the show following Kelly's interview with Infowars founder Alex Jones. She has at least one more year left on her contract, and has hired an attorney after changing agents overnight. There was plenty of hype around "Megyn Kelly Today" when it debuted in September 2017. If people at Fox had issues with Kelly before, imagine how they'd feel if management shoved MacCallum or Bream aside to make room for her. From 9-10am there was essentially a third hour of The Today Show featuring the B-Squad hosts talking about fluffier topics.

NBC News President Andy Lack reportedly condemned Kelly's remarks at a prescheduled NBC staff meeting.

Brad Reed is a news writer at Raw Story.

After criticism surfaced about her costume, she said she was tanned and used a bronzer, but was not trying to appear in blackface. It actually made her a breakout star at the conservative network.

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.
