Don Lemon Rips Megyn Kelly: 'There Has Never Been a Time in Her 47 Years That Blackface Has Been Acceptable' - WATCH

The talk show host accused the Today host of being insincere in her apology.

Kelly made the offending remarks during an awkward roundtable discussion about inappropriate and offensive costumes on her eponymous one-hour block of the "Today" show, known as "Megyn Kelly Today". "Everything is problematical; everything has to be reconsidered; everything has to be looked at in the light of their woke, brilliant righteousness".

Later in the show, she defended a reality TV star who darkened their skin for a Diana Ross costume.

The controversy began with a segment on Tuesday's show, when Kelly asked, "What is racist?" She apologized for the offense, but she earned a full day of anger and mockery from late-night comedy hosts. As a kid? Not so much then either, although it's your parents who'll get the amusing looks, not you.

"Look, of course there are costumes that wouldn't be right if they express hatred, if they express disrespect", he said. "Back when I was a kid, that was okay as long as you were dressing up as like a character". To me, I thought, why would it be controversial for someone dressing up asDiana Ross to make herself look like this unbelievable woman as a way of honoring and respecting her?

"I want to begin with two words: I'm sorry", Kelly, visibly emotional, said at the top of her live-audience show Wednesday morning.

"I realize now that such behavior is indeed wrong, and I am sorry", she wrote. It read in part, "L$3 istening carefully to other points of view, including from friends and colleagues, is leading me to rethink my own views".

While the "Today" hosts agreed that the condemnation of Kelly's segment provided an opportunity to learn about blackface, "I think a lot of people knew about blackface before yesterday", Melvin said. She also talked about the backlash against "Real Housewives of New York" star Luann de Lesseps for wearing a Diana Ross costume a year ago, and said, "She wants to look like Diana Ross for one day, and I don't know how that got racist on Halloween". So I'm a person of color, my color is white, and here's what I want to say about this. "It's racist every day", Ruffin said. And if she had doubled down, even on the narrow point that it's not fair to assume that everyone who wants to dress up as someone black had bad intentions, she would have endured endless days of lectures about how she "still doesn't get it" or whatever. "And yesterday, I learned", Kelly continued.

"I haven't seen it". Older people, we're on the exit ramp of life, it's not the job of old people to transfer the pain of history to young people.

"You know. You know".
