It’s not uncommon for someone to voice their disgust and general disbelief for the things said by those on the Fox News network, but the point is driven home further when that someone happens to be a celebrity. Actor, comedian and activist D.L. Hughley was a guest on news anchor Megyn Kelly’s show and things got pretty heated, pretty quickly.
Naturally the course of the conversation was about the recent murders of black men caught on video and police brutality, however things quickly turned sour when Hughley didn’t hold back in his criticisms of not only the police, but the Fox network as a whole.
As reported by Yahoo, Kelly and Hughley had a very heated exchange that made for some uncomfortable moments as he stated his opinion on murders being captured on social media and more.
Some of the highlights from the interview are below:
[On black men and gun laws]:“We could see somebody getting shot down death… ‘[They’ll say] we don’t know what happened before. We don’t know what happened after,‘” Hughley said before pondering why the first question when a black man is caught with a gun in an open-carry state isn’t, “Do you have a permit for that?” Kelly chimed in, saying, “You’re making assumptions because we don’t know what happened,” which resulted in an argument over the facts of the case.
[On Fox News being racist]: Hughley said that, “The only place racism doesn’t exist is Fox News and the police department.” Kelly said Hughley’s comments offended Fox News viewers. “I’m insulted by the things I hear on this network, so we’re even,” Hughley responded. “I couldn’t care less about insulting people who insult me on a daily basis.”
The intense back and forth between Hughley and Kelly went on until the Fox News host abruptly decided to end the segment after Hughley refused to back down from his statements.
