NBC cancels Megyn Kelly’s morning show

'Straight Bull': Fox News' Tomi Lahren Is Furious Megyn Kelly Actually Faces Consequences for Racism

When you stop and think about it, it all happened so fast.

The end of her show was announced in a tweet by NBC News.

"The costume police are cracking down like never before", she said, ridiculing a college that suggested wearing a cowboy outfit was inadvisable.

"Megyn Kelly Today is not returning".

"What is racist? Because, truly, you do get in trouble if you are a white person who puts on blackface for Halloween or a black person who puts on whiteface for Halloween", she said Tuesday.

Both Kelly and Fox News had been open to her returning to the network before this week's blackface scandal.

"But what is racist?" she wondered aloud.

During her Wednesday show, Kelly issued a lengthy and emotional apology to her audience and those tuned in from around the country. And because no one was there to directly address those questions at the time, it became a viral controversy.

However, Kelly was the one who looked bad after Jones released uncut recordings of his comments with Kelly - which exposed not only her lack of honesty toward Jones, but also deceptive editing tactics by her and her team. "The history of blackface in our culture is abhorrent; the wounds too deep".

Trump says Mohammad bin Salman could be behind murder of Khashoggi
But Trump suggested that responsibility lay higher up: "Well, the prince is running things over there more so at this stage". "There will be no rift with Turkey in the presence of King Salman, his Crown Prince and President Erdogan", he said.

Sadly, that wasn't enough to save her job, and now she is being smeared by NBC.

They say the costumes with fringe and makeshift headdresses are the equivalent of blackface.

Her new lawyer, Hollywood litigator Bryan Freedman, met with NBC officials on Friday and reportedly requested journalist Ronan Farrow - who has his own beef with the network - be present for the discussion. She was criticized for interviewing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, who has said the 2012 CT school shooting a hoax. And as The Hill's Joe Concha pointed out, NBC set her up to fail. "Next week, the 9am hour will be hosted by other Today co-anchors". Now her agent is out and she has no show.

Kelly's future with NBC remains uncertain.

But Megyn Kelly Today stumbled from the start, with Kelly making a number of embarrassing on-air gaffes during her first week.

Kelly also defended a reality TV star who darkened her skin to dress up as Diana Ross.

Few co-star dynamics are quite as complicated as those on NBC's "Today" show.

Fox News hasn't expressed any interest in taking Kelly back now that NBC is negotiating her exit. What's ironic is that her offense pales in comparison to the wrongdoings of other NBC talent.
