Former Fox News host and current NBC host Megyn Kelly faced backlash recently for an insensitive comment she made. The host has now issued a tearful apology for making that statement.

According to Page Six:

The “Megyn Kelly Today” host apologized on-air Wednesday morning for defending using blackface in Halloween costumes, prompting an immediate backlash on social media.

“I want to begin with two words: ‘I’m sorry,’” she said at the start of her show. “Yesterday we had a discussion here about political correctness and Halloween costumes, and that conversation turned to whether it is ever okay for a person of one race to dress up as another — a black person making their race lighter or a white person making theirs darker, to make a costume complete.

“I defended the idea, saying as long as it was respectful, and part of a Halloween costume, it seemed okay,” she continued. “Well, I was wrong and I am sorry.”

Kelly, 47, claimed she only learned on Tuesday’s show the “history of blackface.”

Kelly stated that her ignorance could be attributed to her never having been a politically correct type of person.
