Today (Oct. 26), NBC announced the 47-year-old who just learned blackface is offensive will not be returning to Megyn Kelly Today, and there will be a different host come Monday’s show. How much the of reportedly $69M she is due she will receive is getting worked out.
Like we’ve pointed out before, Megyn Kelly is the same person who took issue with a Black Santa Claus and stressed that he is definitely white.
Flash forward to 2018, and surprise, Kelly acted like “what’s the big deal?” about blackface.
NBC could have save themselves a gang of money by not feeding the trolls. See Twitter reactions to Kelly’s ouster on the flip
Megyn Kelly’s insult to Blacks is the epitome of an insult. Don’t flip the script to other issues and insult us again.— Reverend Al Sharpton (@TheRevAl) October 26, 2018

Megyn Kelly didn’t get fired by NBC for being racist. She was hired for being racist in the hopes she’d bring over some of her FOX followers for ratings. She was fired for failing to translate her racist fan base into NBC advertising.— Salome Strangelove (@salstrange) October 26, 2018
I refuse to spin this for NBC.
To those giving Andy Lack kudos for finally firing Megyn Kelly, stop. She shouldn't have been on NBC in the first place. Even then, she should have been fired when she gave Alex Jones a mainstream platform to spew his shit. Stop praising people doing the right thing by accident.— Lynn V (@lynnv378) October 26, 2018
Paying Megyn Kelly $69 million to be on tv is not required to have that "conversation." That conversation can take place without her. It was already taking place without her. It takes place literally every Halloween, since way before Megyn Kelly was ever hired.— Jay Smooth (@jsmooth995) October 26, 2018
