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.”

    If Megyn would stop saying stupid shit then she’d have nothing to apologize for.

    Am I missing something? I thought the goal is to get folks to want to watch your new show that has so far been tanking in the ratings?

    So why in the world would anyone ever say something stupid like this or why would you come across so unlikable?
