Megyn Kelly slammed for blackface comments on 'Today' show

A clip from Tuesday morning's episode of "Megyn Kelly Today" is sparking controversy online over the "Today" co-host's confusion over why blackface on Halloween is considered to be racist.

During a conversation with three other personalities, including Jenna Bush Hager and Melissa Rivers, called "Halloween costume crackdown: University targets 'inappropriate & offensive' costumes," Kelly wondered why darkening one's skin to look like a character or real person is considered wrong.

"What is racist?" she mused. "You do get in trouble if you are a white person who puts on blackface for Halloween, or a black person who puts on whiteface for Halloween. Back when I was a kid, that was okay just as long as you were dressing as a character."

As Bush Hager proclaimed that "there are limits to how far you want to go" with your Halloween costume in terms of who you might offend and Rivers saying "normal people know where that line is," Kelly leaned into her take on the issue and used a real-life example to explain her point.

She brought up Luann de Lesseps, a longtime cast member on Bravo's "The Real Housewives of New York," who faced criticism during the most recent season when she seemingly darkened her skin for her Diana Ross costume.

"There was a controversy on 'The Real Housewives of New York' with Luann, as she dressed as Diana Ross and she made her skin look darker than it really is," Kelly said on Tuesday. "People said that that was racist! And I don't know, like, I thought, like, 'Who doesn't love Diana Ross?' She wants to look like Diana Ross for one day. I don't know how that got racist on Halloween. It's not like she's walking around [wearing blackface] in general."

"I can't keep up with the number of people that we're offending just by being, like, normal people," she added.

As the clip made its way online, Twitter users were quick to call out Kelly for her "ignorance."

"Megyn Kelly wonders what the big deal is about blackface," the caption on the original clip read.

"I thought you were a journalist?" one person responded. "Do you not know the history of blackface?"

"This is what happens when @FoxNews infiltrates the mainstream," someone else replied. "[The 'Today' Show] should be shamed to perpetuate that type of ignorance."

Others brought up Kelly's comment from 2013 that "Santa is white."

"I kind of laughed and said this is so ridiculous," she said at the time. "Yet another person claiming it’s racist to have a white Santa. For all you kids watching at home, Santa just is white….Just because it makes you uncomfortable doesn’t mean it has to change. Jesus was a white man too."

"This is the same @MegynKelly who lost her mind when there were Black Santas at malls," one person wrote on Tuesday. "Says the women who was offended by Black Santa..." another user replied.

Megyn Kelly has yet to react to the backlash around her latest controversial comments.
