NBC Today show host Megyn Kelly under fire

(18 NEWS) - NBC Today show host Megyn Kelly is under fire after comments made regarding the practice of blackface.

During a discussion on her show, Kelly wondered why it is inappropriate for white people to dress in blackface.

The comment drew criticism from all angles including her colleagues at NBC news.

Kelly started her show the following day with an apology and went on to say she has since learned why her comments were wrong.

Kelly said she understands that the past year has been painful for people of color, and said she didn't want to add to the pain.

The future of Kelly's television show is currently uncertain. CNN reports Kelly's exit from the show "appears to be imminent."
