Megyn Kelly Makes Embarrassing Mistake

Megyn Kelly, the former Fox host, and current NBC host, recently made a major mistake. Apparently, Kelly did not know that “blackface” makeup is considered racist.

According to Page Six:

Megyn Kelly is in hot water after asking “What is racist?” when it comes to black and white face makeup on Halloween.

During a panel discussion on “Megyn Kelly Today” on Monday with Jenna Bush Hager, Jacob Soboroff and Melissa Rivers, Kelly said, “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. Back when I was a kid, that was okay just as long as you were dressing as a character.”

“If you think it’s offensive, it probably is,” Rivers responded, adding that “normal people kind of know where that line is.”

Kelly, 47, went on to cite “Real Housewives of New York” star Luann de Lesseps dressing up as Diana Ross as an example.

Kelly was the target of major backlash after her insensitive comments. Celebrities took to social media to denounce the television host for her ignorance.
