Megyn Kellys controversial comments on support By Blackface on Tuesday’s episode of “Megyn Kelly Today” are not the only steps the journalist has done in his career.
Here are some other gaffes of note.
Her interview did not work well with Jane Fonda
In September 2017, Kelly interviewed veteran actress at hand to promote her Netflix movie “Our Souls at Night.” The conversation became cringe-worthy when the host asked Fonda, 80, about plastic surgery.
“We really want to talk about it now?” Fonda responded to the “Today” showchat and gave Kelly an incredible look.
Kelly later expressed regret over the interview to Us Weekly, published earlier this month.
“I really wish I had not taken on Jane Fonda,” she said to reflect on her program. “It did not go well!”
Kelly insisted on the celeb-focused outlet that she would not have brought back the question, though.
“She answered that question in about 40 different forums,” she said. “There was nothing wrong with me. And she has answered it in 40 more forums since!”

Body Shame Controversy
Earlier this year, Kelly hosted the fitness enthusiast Maria Kang and encouraged her “parlay (fitness shaming) professional company. “
“Some of us want to be embarrassed,” Kelly told. “When I was at school and I lost weight, I told my stepfather,” If you see me go into the kitchen again, you say, “Where are you going, fat …?”
“And it works! “Kelly told the audience, smiling and giving up his thumb.
“I said something yesterday on this show that clearly struck a nerve and I think it’s a call we need to be open,” she said. discussed body-disabling others, something I absolutely do not support. The fact is actually, on the contrary. “
” I’m still hugging when I hear a person attacked for his or her weight, “she added.” Please know that I would never encourage it to anyone. I have thought a lot about why I once encouraged myself. “
Her insistence that Jesus and Santa Claus are white  Before crossing to NBC, Kelly beamed at a 2013 slate piece titled “Santa Claus should not be a white man again.”
“When I saw this title I was kind and laughed,” this is so ridiculous. Another person claiming that it’s racist to have a white Santa, “” Kelly, then a Fox News personality, said. “And for all the children who look at home, Santa is just white. But this person just argues that maybe we should have a black Santa, but Santa is what he is, and just so you know we’re just debating this because someone wrote about it, kids. “
” Just because it makes you feel uncomfortable does not mean it has to change, “added Kelly later.” Jesus was also a white man … He was a historical figure, it is a verifiable fact, which is Santa. I just want the kids looking to know it. “
For Kelly, it was a matter of” how do you change it just in the legacy of history, and change Santa from white to black? “
When asked about her comments at a Business Insider conference in November of November, Kelly acknowledged that she fled during her flight.
” I’m sorry for what I’ve said, “Kelly said. mean you should be on the air several hours a week live tv, you will say stupid (expletive). It’s just the reality you know, so yes, that’s a lot I’d like to go back and say differently. “
