"Love her or hate her, what's happening to Megyn Kelly is straight bull," Lahren tweeted.

Comparisons had been made between Kelly and Lahren on Twitter since the backlash from Kelly's defense of blackface on Tuesday, which sparked interest into how Lahren would react to the news. Of course, Kelly worked at Fox News for a decade before joining NBC last spring for a reported $23 million a year.

Her followers seemed to mostly agree with her assessment of the situation.

"Agreed," someone replied. "She made one comment that she didn't even know was considered racist....I didn't even know."

"It is bull," another user said. "Her $69 million parting gift should ease the pain a little."

"Outrageous!!! Who knew that having no understanding of cultural awareness was a crime?" one of her followers asked. "NBC should pay at least $69 million for their unfair treatment of someone so uninformed! On the bright side, she can now rejoin her Fox News clowns."
