Megyn Kelly Apologizes for Defending Blackface: 'I'm Sorry' [Video]

Megyn Kelly is reportedly catching some major heat over at NBC after she defended the use of blackface during Halloween on her show yesterday.

via TMZ:

Megyn began her show Wednesday morning with a 2-minute mea culpa … insisting she had learned a lesson due to the massive backlash after she said it was fine to wear blackface for Halloween “as long as it’s a character.”

In her apology, she said, “It is not okay for that to be part of any costume. Halloween or otherwise. I’ve never been a PC kind of person, but I do understand the value of being sensitive to our history. Particularly on race and ethnicity.”

Worth noting … her apology drew a standing ovation from audience members — many of whom were African-American.

It’s unclear if her apology went far enough for Al, though. A few hours earlier, he blasted her on the air, saying … “She owes a bigger apology to folks of color around the country.”

Other “Today” anchors called Megyn’s comment …”stupid and indefensible”
