Megyn Kelly's future at NBC in doubt after 'black face' comment

Megyn Kelly Today TV show cancelled by NBC

PW Insider reports that WWE Superstars were scheduled to appear on today's Megyn Kelly Show on NBC, but that has been nixed.

Kelly was not particularly popular when she left the network among the staff, buit had more allies there than she does now at NBC.

Following a row over defending wearing blackface, Kelly has been removed from her namesake talkshow for at least the remainder of the week, with NBC saying in a statement that "given the circumstances" they will air repeats in her time slot.

Kelly's blackface comments earlier in the week that even her co-workers publicly declared were "ignorant" and "indefensible" seem to have been the last straw.

"What is racist?" Kelly said. In 2015, a Pittsburgh woman named Megan Kelly made headlines after she started getting an influx of emails meant for the then-Fox News host.

In moving to a big network, she said that a politics-free morning show was something she was "born to do". "I thought like, who doesn't love Diana Ross?"

Just one day later, Kelly reversed course. "I don't know how, like, that got racist on Halloween".

From the beginning, Megyn Kelly's stint on NBC has been a mixed bag, because despite having trash opinions for a very long time, she was a TV news and politics journalist sentenced to the world of daytime television where everything is politics-lite with some softball stories.




Kelly reportedly parted ways with Creative Artists Agency on Wednesday.

Kelly has been under fire for remarks she made on "Megyn Kelly Today" on Tuesday. "This is a history going back to the 1830s - minstrel shows to demean and denigrate a race". At Fox News she insisted both Santa and Jesus were white.

"I'm Megyn Kelly and I want to begin with two words - I'm sorry", she said. "And yesterday I learned", Kelly said. On the subject of the "costume police" injecting political correctness on Halloween, Kelly discussed blackface with an all-white panel, and her comments got her in hot water.

"This past year has been so painful for many people of color".

Despite her tearful on-air apology on Wednesday, People reports that show staff is now being notified that they will no longer be working on the show.

"There is not other way to put this, but I condemn those remarks", Lack said.

She has a contract worth $69 million. "Everyone's being told that they still have a home here, but it won't be on Megyn's show".
