Megyn Kelly’s NBC Colleagues Are Glad She Has Been Fired For Blackface Remarks: Report
NBC News has reportedly fired “TODAY” show host Megyn Kelly for supporting blackface Halloween costumes on Oct. 23. Kelly has a long history of racist comments.
An unidentified NBC executive told the Daily Mail of Kelly’s firing:
Megyn Kelly is done. She is not ever coming back. We are just working out timing of the announcement but mark my word – she is gone and will never be seen on NBC live again.
Here’s the worst part – her deal is a non-break deal – so she walks away with all that money. It’s disgusting and heads should roll here because of it.
The news of Kelly’s reported firing has brought joy to her colleagues at NBC News, notes The Washington Post:
Everyone’s feeling is, even if you have to pay her [the remainder of her contract], pay her. You can save face with this entire thing. Just get rid of her.
She doesn’t understand that she represents more than just herself when she is here.
We try to produce a segment and then she goes off the rails.
