Journalist Megyn Kelly was first cancelled by NBC and then shown the door back in January of 2019, all (ostensibly) stemming from her comments about Halloween blackface on air in October of 2018.

Since then NBC has been through a whole lot of problems, including #MeToo scandal and, more recently, people pointing out the multiple times the network has aired white people wearing blackface.

This now makes FOUR shows from NBC under fire for various uses of blackface since the year 2000 (the other three being ‘Saturday Night Live,’ ‘30 Rock,’ and ‘Scrubs.’). https://t.co/XW558cSd07

Megyn Kelly made a point of it on Twitter on Saturday, though not on Parler which she joined this week. It was a retweet calling the network out, for what is now a fourth show under fire.

And she brought a list of names, including Jimmy Fallon, who had to apologize last month for a skit in blackface, Fred Armisen, who portrayed both Prince and former president Barack Obama in dark make-up, Tina Fey, who’s 30 Rockrecently pulled episodes featuring blackface bits, Ted Danson, Jane Krakowski, John Hamm, Zach Braff, Sarah Chalke,Ken Jeong, and Julianne Hough, all of whom have been the subject of blackface incidents.

Kelly’s tweet got a lot of traction in likes, retweets, and quote retweets.

Turns out NBC loves blackface!

It’s not her first on the subject, however, having similarly tweeted, and name-checking Andy Lack, just two days ago.

So it turns out that when Andy Lack said “there is no place on our air” for my discussion of blackface, it was b/c NBC was already chalk-full of shows and major stars actually wearing blackface … on the air … at NBC. https://t.co/6vx2Fr9rhG

It does seem like a whole lot of names for the network that claimed to be taking a stand when Kelly discussed but did not donblackface.

I see the agenda, I imagine you won't come out and say it though but are you thinking there's no problem with blackface?

In American Media, all I see is hypocrisy. Black face is just one of several things I just do not understand at all under any circumstances. Hell, I thought it was in the worst taste when I saw Jolson doing it in the 20s & 30s Movies. Megyn Kelly loses her career while Jimmy Fallon...offers a half-assed apology and gets to keep his. VA Gov. Ed Northam gets to keep his career. Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring gets to keep his career. Anyone see a problem here? Racism is Racism. 

Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam's sin looks more like obliviousness ...

Virginia Republicans offer $1,000 for blackface photo of Mark Herring

But oh yes, they are members of the Democrat Elite...sorry, no problems here, none at all.

Megyn Kelly screwed up when she took the job at NBC. She should have known it wasn't a fit for her.
