Bad News for Megyn Kelly

It looks like Megyn Kelly has just ended her career at NBC News. The Daily Caller reports:

Megyn Kelly is reportedly leaving NBC News just two days after she made comments about “blackface” and non-politically correct Halloween costumes.

NBC announced earlier on Thursday that they would air pre-recorded episodes of “Megyn Kelly Today” for the remainder of the week rather than having Kelly host a live show. The canceling of Kelly’s show appeared imminent and the former Fox News host left her talent agency and retained a top Hollywood lawyer.

“What is racist?” Kelly said on her show Tuesday. “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. Like back when I was a kid it was okay if you were dressing up as a character.”

Kelly apologized internally at NBC and then publicly on her show for the comments, but NBC appeared to be setting the stage for her departure regardless.

There is a lingering doubt as to whether Megyn Kelly has a #MeToo claim against NBC, as the network has been plagued by sexual assault scandals for the last twelve months.
