Television Megyn Kelly has been fired after defending blackface, still gets $69M

Recommended Posts

She's not on her show this morning, and it certainly looks like she's been fired. She'll still get paid the $69M she's owed from her recent contract.

I never really see Al Roker be upset on Today because that's his personality, so the fact that he went on TV and said, “The fact is while she apologized to the staff, she owes a bigger apology to folks of color around the country," was a big deal. I have read a LOT of behind-the-scenes stuff, and her ratings have not been great anyway compared to before her arrival there, and this seriously rattled people behind-the-scenes.

Is it official she was fired?

I watched the video and didn't hear anything that would warrant being fired. :shrug:  

 

Somebody enlighten me...

She didnt either... which is why she was (possibly) fired.

Megyn Kelly has always been absolutely awful. Liberals were idiots for rallying around her as if she was some innocent progressive stuck at Fox because she argued with and was attacked by Trump at one of the primary debates.

I have to give her credit for riding that ridiculous wave to an absurd contract at NBC, though.

Because blackface is bad, and suggesting otherwise is also bad. Pretty simple.

But what if you just went overboard with your self-tan cream and thought “might as well go full Dolezal”? :confused:

:p

She also had some pretty strong views about Santa too.

Please don't remind me of Rachel Dolezal, my stomach muscles aren't equipped right now. 

 

Her 'case' initially hitting the news is still one of the funniest fucking things I've ever seen. I was working with this dude at the time who was like Fat Albert crossed with Dave Chappelle and we were literally in hysterics in our office laughing at the staggering absurdity of it all. I'll never forget the sounds of that man's laughter.

I hate that woman. So many people in my real life use her to justify calling trans people fakes and mentally ill.

All I'm going to say is watch the doc if you can. Not justifying what she did, but there's definitely more to the story and she definitely has... "issues".

I'll be honest. I don't have enough empathy in me for it and can't care about the finer details of why some white lady in black face and a fake afro was elected as NAACP branch president. In my head, this is a real-life Chappelle Show skit and I'll fully accept the responsibility of being a dickhead for laughing at her. 

 

Actually, I laughed at the entire situation as a whole. It's all certified asinine.

Oh you're not a dickhead for laughing... I STILL laugh at the shit :lol: The Netflix doc just showed there was more going on than what we saw in the press.

Okay, I can't stop now...

 

Please, did they explain in detail how the FUCK whoever was in charge at her local NAACP chapter did not smell bullshit? That may be the best part about it. There must've been a bunch of members going "come on now...we all know...but this is just too fucking awkward to accuse someone of, right? Right?"

They should've hired you as PR guy because nobody has ever more effectively convinced me to watch something I thought I'd rather gouge my eyes out than see.

TMZ has exclusive details.

 

Quote

Another NBC source tells us it didn't help that Megyn's co-workers "hated" being on air with her. One specific example was during coverage of Dr. Christine Ford's testimony -- Megyn was part of the panel with Savannah Guthrie, Lester Holt, Andrea Mitchell and Chuck Todd.
 

We're told the other anchors and correspondents felt Megyn was way too bluntly conservative on air. Andrea eventually left the panel, mid-coverage. 

 

The divorce -- which, we're told is more mutual than a firing -- isn't shaping up to be quick and easy. Daily Mail, which first reported Megyn's ouster, says she's hired high-powered attorney Bryan Freedman who's scheduled a sit-down with NBC ... no doubt to discuss the terms of her departure. She has a $69 million contract.

I live an hour away from Spokane, Wa, and before this I lived in the city for 5 years. I can tell you, the intelligence level you're dealing with in that city is...well let's just say it's not high lol 

 

I haven't seen the doc, so it's good to hear that some suspected...but yeah, Spokane gonna Spokane. Neat little city otherwise tho!

My mom was watching Dr. Phil and he had on a girl that was super racist against Black people, saying that they're ugly (big lips, big noses) and stupid, and that White people were perfect, and that because she was White she was perfect too and would never want to even interact with Black people, or "hood rats" as she called them.

 

The girl was Black. :|
