Andrew Klavan Slams The Left For Attacking Megyn Kelly

According to The New York Times, the show will end before 2019, propelled by recent headlines over Kelly's insensitive remarks over blackface Halloween costumes.

The news comes just after THR reported that the cast of Netflix's House of Cards decided last minute to pull out of their scheduled appearance on Wednesday's Megyn Kelly Today after her controversial blackface comments.

"Wrong. You can not take away the history about what blackface meant", Sharpton said of her original statements.

Two years of pent-up bitterness and backbiting about Megyn Kelly have finally come to a head at NBC News...

"The fact is, while she apologized to the staff, she owes a bigger apology to folks of color round the country", Al Roker said. "This is a history going back to the 1830s - minstrel shows to demean and denigrate a race wasn't right". "And that's what the big problem is", he added.

"In addition to [Kelly] being a colleague, she's a friend", Melvin added. "She said something indefensible".




"Jesus was a white man, too", she said at the time.

Tamera Mowry** said Kelly's comments were "concerning" because of her age. "There were no people of color there to say 'hey, Megyn, not cool'". As a kid? Not so much then either, although it's your parents who'll get the amusing looks, not you.

Sadly, Kelly's racist comment will have no affect on her show. I think people really need to educate themselves about this particular issue, and we need to realize in this culture that some people do have a privilege where they don't have to think about it. Kelly then invited Roland Martin and Amy Holmes, co-host of PBS' "In Principle", to discuss the history of blackface and why it's offensive. "And there's history and there's pain, and when we acknowledge that, we can learn and grow from it".

Holmes said that the teaching moment should "challenge stereotypes that we may have about different racial and ethnic groups and think, 'Wait a minute, is that fair?" "I don't want to see anybody dressing up as a Klansmen or a Nazi or anything like that, that's not the point".

On Tuesday's episode of the show, during a conversation surrounding universities banning certain Halloween costumes, Kelly brought up the issue of people getting slammed for using blackface on Halloween. 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 whiteface for Halloween.

On her morning show, the 47-year-old news host said that dressing up in blackface was okay when she was a kid as long as you were impersonating a character.
