WATCH: Jimmy Kimmel, Jimmy Fallon get hall pass for blackface costumes and worse

"'Megyn Kelly Today' is not returning", an NBC News representative said on October 26.

Earlier this week, Kelly hosted a discussion about the use of blackface for Halloween costumes, and her comments were met with outstanding criticism.

Megyn Kelly's "Today" show run on NBC is officially over. "You will be loved by millions of Russian men, while a million women will be jealous of you", Kleymenov said.

"I want to begin with two words - "I'm sorry, '" she told those in attendance and on TV".

Peskov went on to praise Kelly for her "dynamic and energetic interview with President Putin".

Kelly and NBC might not totally be over. Kelly was wooed away from Fox News in 2017 by NBC, which is reportedly paying her almost $20 million a year.

She proceeded to muse over the topic of racism and how it has been construed over the decades since her childhood. Kelly said Tuesday. "Truly, you do get in trouble if you are a white person who puts on blackface at Halloween or a black person who puts on whiteface for Halloween. Back when I was a kid, that was okay as long as you were dressing up as like a character". And, he is thrilled that NBC has given her the ax.

Facebook removes Iran-linked accounts
Accounts and pages dated back several years, but most of the online activity took place in the past year, according to Facebook. It's unclear how many people saw the content being circulated by the now-deleted accounts from Iran.

Megyn Kelly remains absent from her NBC morning show while the company acknowledged on the "Today" show that her future with the network is in doubt.

The network said the anchor won't return to the program following racially insensitive remarks she made on the air this week.

In the video below, Kelly comments on blackface and how it was used for Halloween costumes when she was a child. At the same time, her former association with Fox caused some NBC colleagues and viewers to regard her with suspicion.

A former local news reporter and lawyer, Kelly elevated her profile during the 2016 presidential election when she squared off against Donald Trump and his surrogates, such as Newt Gingrich.

This was a completely different result compared to Matt Lauer's exit. "Jimmy Fallon - who hosts NBC's flagship late-night show - earns around $15 million".

"The show's ratings got off to a slow start, with Kelly attracting a smaller audience than the when her predecessors, Tamron Hall and Al Roker, hosted the 9 a.m. hour", NBC News' Claire Atkinson recounted. "She was never able to overcome her Fox image".
