‘Megyn Kelly Today’ canceled by NBC, co-anchors to take over

Megyn Kelly’s morning show is reportedly over because of her blackface comment. More

Kelly made her controversial remarks on her show on Tuesday. Following a backlash, Kelly apologized in an email to colleagues, then live on the air on her show.

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. Social media condemnation was swift, and Kelly apologized to fellow NBC staffers later in the day and made a tearful apology on her show Wednesday.

What is more, it's unclear that Kelly is even going to suffer much of a effect for her actions.

The network on Friday again aired a repeat of "Megyn Kelly Today" just as it did Thursday following this week's controversy.

"I'm Megyn Kelly and I want to begin with two words: I'm sorry", Kelly said.

Kelly also stated to a panel of white people, "What is racist?"

Ms. Kelly's representatives did not give a comment to NBC News.

"Back when I was a kid that was OK, as long as you were dressing up as, like, a character", she said on the show.

Just three days ago, during a segment about Halloween costumes, Kelly questioned if blackface - makeup traditionally used by non-black performers to mock African Americans - was always problematic.

Kelly, 47, would have been of Halloween costume age about, say 40-ish years ago, in the 70's. "The history of blackface in our culture is abhorrent; the wounds too deep".

"The fact is, she owes a bigger apology to folks of color around the county", Roker said while discussing the incident with Melvin and Savannah Guthrie on Today. "This is a history going back to the 1830s minstrel shows, to demean and denigrate a race wasn't right", Roker said. She's a good person, a wonderful mom, wife, sister, friend and human being.

Time magazine, which honoured "The Silence Breakers" as its Person of the Year, cited Kelly as its leader in the entertainment field.

Donahue called out what he perceived to be a double standard at NBC in a lengthy statement on Friday. "When I was in law school and I was gaining weight, I said to my stepfather, "If you see me go into that kitchen one more time, you say, 'Where are you goin", fat *ss?'"

Kelly signed an approximate 3-year, $69 million contract with the network in late 2017, and ended up making about $25 million a year.
