Megyn Kelly has caused a firestorm of controversy yet again over her decision to host an interview with InfoWars creator Alex Jones, who is infamous for his conspiracy theories regarding the Sandy Hook school shooting.
Her decision to have the discredited conspiracy theorist has cost her deeply. A dedicated sponsor to her new show on NBC has pulled their advertising for the airing of the episode, which is set for Father’s Day on Sunday. To add insult to injury, a group associated with the Sandy Hook tragedy dropped Kelly as a host for their upcoming gala.
The controversy has also put NBC in crisis mode, especially after Kelly took to Twitter Tuesday to post a statement on the matter. In her statement, she essentially blames President Trump for the outcry from the American public, which only farther condemned her status as a respectable journalist.
With Kelly standing by her decision to keep to the interview, and a likely ratings drop being imminent, our latest poll asks you: should NBC fire Megyn Kelly?
