Megyn Kelly Removed From NBC News Election Night Coverage

It's yet another disappointment in the Peacock Network's relationship with Kelly.

In the wake of her exit, Kelly's former staffers have not heard anything from her and feel like she straight up abandoned them.

The source told Radar Online that a lot of Kelly's staffers expected an apology because she basically took them down with her. Kelly has not issued anything of the kind and has not even acknowledged what happened.

As a result of her dismissal, Kelly was also axed from the network's special live broadcast of "The Vote: America's Future".

In January, Dailymail.com exclusively revealed that NBC staff members were "horrified" that Kelly was part of the team covering the State of the Union.

NBC News declined to comment on the issue, according to the outlet.


While her staffers deal with unemployment, Kelly is getting millions as part of her exit. NBC is reportedly giving the disgraced host around $40 million to close out her contract.

The two sides are also fighting over whether or not Kelly will sign a non-disclosure as part of her exit.

Megyn Kelly effectively torched her NBC career in one fell swoop last month while discussing Halloween costumes on her hour of the Today show, when she posed the question - with what seemed like genuine bewilderment - of why it's racist for white people to put on blackface when dressing up. This is clearly planted by NBC News to continue its mission to harm Megyn and gain some sort of leverage. Kelly asked. Because you do get in trouble if you are a white person who puts on blackface on Halloween, or a black person who puts on whiteface for Halloween.

During an all-white panel discussion on October 23, Kelly questioned why wearing blackface would be offensive during the Halloween season, and noted that dressing up in blackface was "OK" when she was a child "as long as you were dressing like a character".

Many observers were aghast at Kelly's comments, and some noted that the panel did not include a single person of color. She was in the middle of a three-year contract with the network and was pulling down $23 million a year.
