Megyn Kelly Apologizes to Coworkers for Blackface Comments

Megyn Kelly Apologizes to Coworkers for Blackface Comments

Megyn Kelly is apologizing for her recent comments defending the idea of wearing blackface during Halloween for a costume.

Megyn sent an internal email, obtained by Variety on Tuesday (October 23), directly after making her comments.

“One of the wonderful things about my job is that I get the chance to express and hear a lot of opinions. Today is one of those days where listening carefully to other points of view, including from friends and colleagues, is leading me to rethink my own views,” she wrote.

“I realize now that such behavior is indeed wrong, and I am sorry. The history of blackface in our culture is abhorrent; the wounds too deep…I’ve never been a ‘pc’ kind of person — but I understand that we do need to be more sensitive in this day and age. Particularly on race and ethnicity issues which, far from being healed, have been exacerbated in our politics over the past year. This is a time for more understanding, love, sensitivity and honor, and I want to be part of that. I look forward to continuing that discussion.”

Rachel Bloom Wrote a Song About Female Pleasure & Unattainable Beauty Standards - Watch!

Rachel Bloom is on the cover of Allure‘s first-ever musical cover package, out now.

The cover story includes an original song from Rachel about unattainable beauty standards and pleasure.

Here’s what the 31-year-old Crazy Ex-Girlfriend star had to say…

On perceived beauty as a measure of value: “We don’t measure men by that. We measure women by that, and that’s the male gaze.”

On how storytelling has allowed her to approach difficult themes new ways: “I think the interesting part for me is being in therapy and also doing this show, learning different shades of everything…. In diagnosing a character, you really start to learn that these diagnoses aren’t labels. They’re tools to help you try [to] feel better, to find what is gonna make you happy. And it’s an ever-changing field, an ever-changing science.

On potential dangers the Internet: “It’s important that with awareness, we not swing so wildly to the other side. And [on] the Internet, everything’s so black and white — there are exaggerations even on the good-guy side.”
