NBC News Cancels ‘Megyn Kelly Today’

'Straight Bull': Fox News' Tomi Lahren Is Furious Megyn Kelly Actually Faces Consequences for Racism

A report earlier Friday on the "Today" show cited a source familiar with the situation as saying NBC News and Kelly were in talks about the anchor leaving the network and another source said it was "extremely unlikely" that she'll stay. She added, "I learned that given the history of blackface being used in terrible ways by racists in this country, it is not okay for that to be part of any costume, Halloween or otherwise".

Reports that Kelly's show may be coming to an end first surfaced Thursday afternoon.

The network on Friday again aired a repeat of "Megyn Kelly Today" just as it did Thursday following this week's controversy.

Kelly's attorney, Bryan Freedman, said that Kelly "remains an employee of NBC News" and that "discussions about next steps are continuing". "Well, I was wrong and I am sorry", she said.

The Sunday show quickly failed and her hour of the Today show has grossly under-performed compare to when it was hosted by Tamron Hall and Al Roker - the former of which was forced out of NBC and MSNBC upon news of Kelly's arrival.

If Megyn Kelly had omitted the word "blackface" when maintaining there's nothing offensive about a white person dressing up as a famous black person on Halloween or vice versa, she'd be fine now. She apologized in a tearful message to viewers on Wednesday's episode of her show, as well as privately to her staff.

As for Kelly herself, a source told NBC News, "Conversations have already started about Megyn's exit from the network".

The comments sparked a quick backlash on social media, calls for Kelly's resignation and displeasure from her own colleagues. "Thank you for listening, and for helping me listen, too". "There's the question of the faith and confidence of the public in the reporting of NBC on matters involving itself", she stated at the time. "But I'm not going to be one of the ones piling on Megyn Kelly at this time".
