Bill Maher blamed "cancel culture" and the "woke" left for Kelly being dropped from NBC. The former Fox News and NBC host appeared on HBO's "Real Time with Bill Maher" on Friday night.
The former NBC host appeared to suggest hypocrisy in NBCUniversal's treatment of her compared to the use of blackface in "Tropic Thunder." But "Tropic Thunder" was released by a rival studio.
"I don't see enough Republicans in that body turning on a man who's about to face re-election anyway," she says.
"Bombshell" sees A-list actors like Charlize Theron, Nicole Kidman and John Lithgow become real-life people associated with Fox News like Megyn Kelly, Gretchen Carlson and Roger Ailes.
In a rare interview with PBS' "Frontline," the former Fox News host recalled the backlash to her 2015 debate question.
Former CBS producer Ashley Bianco told Megyn Kelly that she was fired only four days into her new job. "I wasn't even given the professional courtesy to defend myself. I didn't know what I'd been accused of. It was humiliating. It was devastating," she said.
"NBC says it has nothing to hide," Kelly said. "Great! Let's not hide anything."
Wait, is that Megyn Kelly? Nope. It's Charlize Theron.
As Twitter lit up with responses to President Donald Trump's televised address, conservatives including Donald Trump Jr. and Megyn Kelly criticized a joke by the "Late Night With Seth Meyers" account.
Fox News host Tucker Carlson compared a "whiteface" costume worn by NBC News host Lester Holt to that of recently fired "Today" show host Megyn Kelly, deeming all people offended as "self-righteous."
NBC News host Megyn Kelly had a history of dubious comments about race.
Amid backlash for her "blackface" comments, it is rumored that Kelly's job as host of her "Today" show segment is at risk.
"You cannot prove a sexual assault of Dr. Ford," Megyn Kelly said on the Today show Monday. "You can't, even she can't."
The journalist said Ford should testify on Monday.
"The Obama administration overcorrected the problem and swung the pendulum too far back against the accused," Kelly claimed.
"They're upset about a sexist, crude remark?" Kelly said. "The Trump White House. Are they kidding me?"
"For the paying customers who go in with their kids, do you really want to deal with a mass of homeless people or whoever is in there? Could be drug addicted—you don't know when you're there with your kids paying for the services of the place."
Fonda "has no business lecturing anyone on what qualifies as offensive."
Tomlin said she has been friends with Fonda since "before your first facelift."
Earlier this month, the actress said Ratner forced her to perform oral sex on him. She has now revealed an encounter with Weinstein, as well.
Juli Briskman lost her job over the matter but has no regrets.
Briganti "is known for her vindictiveness. To this day, she pushes negative articles on certain Ailes accusers," Kelly said.
The former Fox star goes Tina Fey's "sheetcaking" route by avoiding issues on her morning show debut.
