Liberals have turned on Megyn Kelly after the talk show host said it’s ok for kids to wear blackface on Halloween.
Kelly said dressing as characters from other races is nothing new, and it’s not racist.
According to USA Today:
An emotional Megyn Kelly said she has learned from the backlash over her comments defending blackface.
“I want to begin with two words: I’m sorry,” she said at the top of Wednesday morning’s show. “You may have heard that yesterday we had a conversation about political correctness and Halloween costumes… I defended the idea (of blackface), saying that as long it was respectful and part of a Halloween costume, that it seemed OK. Well, I was wrong, and I am sorry.”
Kelly originally provoked a wave of backlash when, during a round-table discussion on Tuesday’s show, she claimed that blackface was “OK when I was a kid as long as you were dressing like a character.”
In the round-table conversation, she defended “Real Housewives of New York” star Luann de Lesseps, who was accused of darkening her skin while dressing up as Diana Ross for Halloween last year.
“And people said that that was racist. And I don’t know!” she said about de Lesseps. “I thought like, who doesn’t love Diana Ross? She wants to look like Diana Ross for one day, and I don’t know how that got racist on Halloween.”
