NBC Cancels Megyn Kelly's 'Today' Show | HuffPost Canada

NBC said that "Megyn Kelly Today" was canceled on Friday - but the embattled host was still at the network. "Who doesn't love Diana Ross?" said Ms. Kelly in on-air comments offensive only to the eager-to-be-offended.

Megyn Kelly will no longer be anchoring the 9 a.m. hour of the "Today" show. Kelly's lawyer Bryan Freedman released his own statement after NBC's, saying on Friday that "Megyn remains an employee of NBC News and discussions about next steps are continuing".

Kelly, who is reportedly in talks with NBC about leaving the network, was seemingly out of place in the much friendlier morning environment.

The status of her conversations with the network about her departure are still in progress, according to two people familiar with conversations who were not authorized to speak publicly. She stated, "Because truly you do get in trouble if you are a white person who puts on blackface at Halloween or a black person who puts on white face for Halloween".

"NBC News staffers were calling her show a "disaster" well before this latest controversy", CNN reports.

In Theron's new movie, which does not have an official release date yet, the Oscar victor co-stars with John Lithgow, who's playing Kelly's former Fox News boss Roger Ailes, and Nicole Kidman playing Fox News commentator Gretchen Carlson.

Kelly's asinine commentary left viewers demanding Tamron Hall replace the former Fox News host. "But I also think that it is partially the fault of the people who hired her because Megyn's record, how she feels about things, she says she's not PC". During the first GOP debate in 2015, she asked Mr Trump about calling women "fat pigs, dogs, slobs, and disgusting animals". "Blood coming out of her wherever". In 2013, while an anchor at Fox, Ms Kelly addressed the ethnicity of Santa Claus by saying: "For all you kids watching at home, Santa just is white".
