CNN’s Don Lemon blasts Megyn Kelly, but she’s not the only one

CNN’s Don Lemon blasts Megyn Kelly, but she’s not the only one

According to recent reports and a Friday morning retweet from The Today Show, Kelly will likely not be returning to NBC to host Megyn Kelly Today. Both NBC's Nightly News and Today did stories on her blackface comment, and weatherman Al Roker said Ms Kelly "owes a big apology to people of color across the country".

News says the hour that had belonged to Kelly will be hosted next week by other "Today" show co-anchors.

NBC has officially canceled "Megyn Kelly Today" amid rampant speculation about the future of her show, after her show aired reruns on Thursday and Friday. It took just 48 hours for Kelly to be cut from the network.

Kelly, who is reportedly in talks with NBC about leaving the network, was seemingly out of place in the much friendlier morning environment. Another source who was not authorized to speak publicly was cited in the report as saying Kelly's representatives are scheduled to meet Friday with company executives and it looks "extremely unlikely" that she'll stay.

She last appeared on her show on the network on October 24, apologizing at the top of the segment for her comments the previous day about blackface and whiteface.

Players are also known for their gambling spirit, shown once again during the Mega Millions Lottery with a $1.6 billion jackpot. Those earnings are likely to increase too, Cooper said, as a climbing Powerball lottery is set to be drawn Wednesday night.

Kelly's attorney, Bryan Freedman, said that Kelly "remains an employee of NBC News" and that "discussions about next steps are continuing".

In 2015 she accused Michelle Obama of playing into a "culture of victimization" - a common statement made by white supremacists and black conservatives - she spoke about racial inequality during a commencement speech at Tuskegee University.

She largely floundered with that soft-news focus and a pair of awkward and hostile interviews with Hollywood figures Jane Fonda and Debra Messing backfired with bad publicity.

"When I was a kid, that was OK as long as you were dressing up as, like, a character".

Kelly earned fame as a longtime anchor for Fox News, notably sparring with Donald Trump during the 2016 presidential election campaign. Her private testimony about former Fox News chief executive Roger Ailes' unwanted sexual advances a decade ago helped lead to Ailes' firing.
