It's official: Megyn Kelly is off NBC's morning Today show.
"Megyn Kelly Today is not returning," an NBC spokesperson said. "Next week, the 9 a.m. hour will be hosted by other TODAY co-anchors." This comes after her embarrassing confusion earlier in the week as to why blackface is offensive.
Kelly's ignorance has also left her without a talent agent. Just prior to her comments, she had left CAA to join UTA. And then it all fell apart. From Daily Beast:
But as the backlash continued Wednesday night, UTA said that it was not representing the NBC host. Kelly's departure from the agency came on the same day that reports said NBC was ending her daily daytime talk show following her assertion that white people should be able to dress in blackface on Halloween.
