NBC this is who y’all sacrificed Tamron Hall for? Really?
Megyn Kelly’s Dumb A** Doesn’t Understand Why Blackface Halloween Costumes Are Racist was originally published on hellobeautiful.com
1. It’s 2018…Do Better Megyn!
On Tuesday’s “TODAY with Megyn Kelly,” Ms. Megyn did exactly what we expected her to do: Show the world just how racist she actually is. Apparently, she defended the right to wear blackface costumes on Halloween, saying she didn’t understand why it was considered offensive. Yeah, she tried it.
But thankfully, folks on Twitter dragged her to hell and back for not knowing any better in 2018.

In the video clip of the ALL-WHITE panel, Megyn asked “But what is racist? You truly do get in trouble if you are a white person who puts on blackface at Halloween or a black person who puts on whiteface for Halloween…Back when I was a kid, that was OK, as long as you were dressing up as like a character.” Take a look of this nonsense for yourself:

Blackface may be a part of our fucked up history as a country, but it was never ok, Megyn Kelly.— Christina Coleman Mullen (@ChrissyCole) October 23, 2018
Stop giving this woman chances.

NBC cancelled the 9am hour of the Today Show hosted by Tamron Hall and Al Roker so Megyn Kelly, who gets paid more than twice their combined salaries, can do this. https://t.co/yINbQ8wptr— ☕netw3rk (@netw3rk) October 23, 2018

Other MK producer who clearly DGAF: How about the daughters of Joan Rivers and George W. Bush?!

Hey remember when you all tried to convince us that being feminist meant supporting Megyn Kelly? https://t.co/Wuz4F3Ge0Y— Openly Black Mikki Kendall (@Karnythia) October 23, 2018

Megyn Kelly was born in 1970. Blackface was not okay when she was a kid. She knows that. She’s just doing her regularly scheduled public display of bigotry for her fans. Anyway, vote. https://t.co/baaf7bXUn6— Pamela Merritt (she/her) (@SharkFu) October 23, 2018

I had no idea Megyn was born in the 1920s. https://t.co/iCwn5CVeU4
I cannot believe the ignorance on this in 2018. You are on national television. You have a responsibility to educate yourself on social issues @megynkelly. This is so damaging. https://t.co/R7UJzkDDG9 https://t.co/7qFkqGHfGJ— Padma Lakshmi (@PadmaLakshmi) October 23, 2018
In the year of our Beyonce 2018 Megyn Kelly and her panel is on NBC making the argument that blackface isn't that bad.— Blackthorn City's Most Valuable Trainer (@Ljay90) October 23, 2018
Money well spent, NBC. https://t.co/GY3ysgbigF
@megynkelly I’m sure you know the history of blackface. Why ain’t stupid for your audience. You can be who you want to be for Halloween without using blackface and people will know exactly who you are if you wear it right! pic.twitter.com/wHeA9dYQlk— Kevin Simmons (@TheSkorpion) October 23, 2018
Megyn Kelly doesn’t see the big deal about blackface but did see the big deal when Donald Trump insulted her.— JRehling (@JRehling) October 23, 2018
It’s as simple as this: OTHER people’s feelings matter, too.
If you’re an adult and don’t get that yet, you’re probably never going to get it.
Friendly reminder that Megyn Kelly has a three-year, $69 million contract with NBC. https://t.co/RU1QuWwQtN— Saeed Jones (@theferocity) October 23, 2018
Imagine being an alleged journalist and not getting why Blackface is offensive + also not knowing (or being able to easily look up) basic American history around Blackface+minstrel shows? 🤨🤔@megynkelly, get a clue+stop trolling Black ppl for reactions/buzz for ur flop show.🙄 https://t.co/QKarAVf6EW— Mark Sundstrom (@106th) October 23, 2018

An all-white panel gingerly discussing whether or not blackface should be offensive is basically what I'd expect from a talk show hosted by rehabilitated Fox News propagandist and dog whistler Megyn Kelly https://t.co/ItPtzfqgtj

Megyn Kelly is the type of bitch who would wear blackface at a keggerthrown by frat boys like Brett https://t.co/xkrqdeFCwB— Cuhsandra (@Cuhsandra) October 4, 2018
So this is how free speech works, Megyn Kelly. You have the right to be a racist a**hole if you want, but other people also have the right to call you a racist a**hole when you are. https://t.co/BlANYEmoTe— Keith Boykin (@keithboykin) October 23, 2018

Megyn Kelly makes $23 million per year and is currently the highest paid news anchor on television. Her ratings are 18% lower than the show she replaced hosted by Tamron Hall and Al Roker.— Denizcan James (@MrFilmkritik) October 23, 2018
It's time to fire her.
I'm older than Megyn Kelly. And no, when we were kids, it was definitely NOT OKAY for white kids to put on blackface, because even then we knew about the deep historical racism of blackface.— Lisa Bloom (@LisaBloom) October 23, 2018
