Megyn Kelly apologizes on air for her blackface comments



“I want to begin with two words: I'm sorry. You may have heard that yesterday we had a discussion here about political correctness and Halloween costumes. And that conversation turned to whether it is ever okay for a person of one race to dress up as another: a black person making their face lighter or a white person making their face darker to make a costume complete. I defended the idea, saying as long as it was respectful and part of a Halloween costume, it seemed okay. Well, I was wrong. And I'm sorry.”

”One of the great parts of getting to sit in this chair is getting to discuss points of view. Sometimes I talk and sometimes I listen. And yesterday, I learned. I learned that given the history of blackface being used in awful ways by racists in this country. It is not okay for that to be part of any costume, Halloween or otherwise.”
