'Turns out NBC loves blackface!' Megyn Kelly mocks her former employer...


Megyn Kelly has mocked her former employer NBC for canceling her show due to a discussion about blackface, after a fourth show on the network was singled out for featuring the offensive makeup. 

Kelly, 49, had her NBC show Megyn Kelly Today canceled in 2019 following her remarks surrounding the appropriateness of blackface during Halloween.

On Friday Netflix announced that it was pulling an episode of NBC's sitcom Community after they realized it featured blackface.

NBC has also withdrawn episodes of 30 Rock for depicting the same racially insensitive practice.

Saturday Night Live and Scrubs have also featured blackface, and on June 1 Jimmy Fallon made an emotional apology for donning blackface on SNL.

Kelly tweeted on Friday, in response to questions over the four shows: 'Turns out NBC loves blackface!'

She then listed the names of those who had performed in the makeup - Jimmy Fallon, Fred Armisen, Tina Fey, Ted Danson, Jane Krakowski, John Hamm, Zach Braff, Sarah Chalke, Ken Jeong, and Julianne Hough.

Kelly's brief career at NBC ended in the wake of her comments defending reality TV star Luann de Lesseps' use of blackface to dress like Diana Ross for Halloween.
