Hudson Valley's Megyn Kelly Out At NBC After Defending Blackface

Kelly's co-hosts on the main Today show, who present between 7am and 9am before Kelly appears, were heavily critical of her comments.
Political analysts have noted Kelly's career has been on a steady decline since she attacked then-candidate Donald Trump during the 2016 election. "When she made that comment about it not being in her current marriage it irritated me a bit because it seemed like she was suggesting it was me". She is in the middle of the second year of a three year contract. "It's complicated. Now is as good of time as any to get rid of her".
After she made the comments, Kelly retained the services of Bryan Freedman, one of Hollywood's litigators. Now, according to a person with direct knowledge of the matter, she's lost her perch as host of NBC'sToday Show at 9 a.m.
Michigan, Michigan State continue debate over skirmish
So another week of rest could do wonders for the wide receiver as next week we could get a more serious update on Black's return. The Wolverines can't move up too much, but they will have chances to do that against the Nittany Lions and Buckeyes next month.
During a discussion on cultural appropriation and Halloween costumes on Tuesday, Kelly said it was "okay" to wear blackface when she was a kid.
"But what is racist?" "Truly, you do get in trouble if you are a white person who puts on blackface for Halloween, or a black person who put on whiteface for Halloween". I'd love to consider this a victory, but she's going to walk out with a check and more job offers somewhere else.
The comments drew immediate backlash across social media and, perhaps more importantly, her bosses and colleagues at NBC.
Farrow recently accused NBC News of blocking his reporting on Weinstein, a charge that was denied by network chief Andy Lack. "I learned given the history of blackface being used in terrible ways by racists in this country, it is not OK for that to be part of any costume, Halloween or otherwise". "I learned that given the history of blackface being used in bad ways by racists in this country, it is not OK for that to be part of any costume, Halloween or otherwise". "I'm Megyn Kelly and I want to begin with two words: I'm sorry", she began. Kelly apologized the following day with a tearful statement about how she never meant to add to the cultural divisions in America.
"There is no other way to put this, but I condemn those remarks", Lack said, according to a transcript that was obtained by The Daily Beast. "There is no place on our air or in this workplace for them". Citing the particular example of "Real Housewives of New York" star Luann de Lesseps getting slammed as racist for darkening her skin in order to look like Diana Ross for Halloween, Kelly pushed back on the idea that that was inherently racist.
Still, for NBC, it's a big blow, especially given her reported $69 million contract.
