Michael Bublé Appears On ‘Carpool Karaoke’ With James Corden For An Important Cause

Bublé opened up to Corden about his son’s cancer battle, and the mood turned somber after when speaking about Bublé’s now 5-year-old son Noah, who was diagnosed with liver cancer in 2016 at the age of three.

Multiple Sources Say Megyn Kelly Is Out At NBC’s ‘Today’ Show After Blackface Scandal

According to multiple reports, Megyn Kelly Today will been canceled and Kelly herself let go from NBC. After Kelly was widely criticized on Tuesday after she defending using blackface in Halloween costumes on her show, she made a tearful on-air apology on Wednesday.

Megyn Kelly Gives On-Air Apology For Blackface Comments

NBC News host Megyn Kelly delivered her first on-air apology Wednesday, admitting she was wrong for her comments which defended the use of blackface during Halloween. During a round table segment on her show “Megyn Kelly TODAY” on Tuesday, Kelly ignited controversy after she asked panelists “what is racist” about white people wearing blackface as part of their Halloween costume. Backlash was swift on social media, which overwhelmingly deemed her comments inappropriate and offensive. In her show’s opening on Wednesday, Kelly said:  “I want to begin with two words: ‘I’m sorry. I defended the idea [of blackface] saying as long as it was ‘respectful’ and part of a Halloween costume it seemed ok. Well I was wrong and I am sorry.” Kelly previously apologized for her comments on Tuesday by sending an internal email to fellow staff, but most NBC colleagues felt the apology didn’t go far enough. “TODAY” show host Al Roker on Wednesday morning said on-air, “the fact is, while she apologized to the staff, she owes a bigger apology to folks of color around the country. This is a history going back to the 1830s minstrel shows to demean and denigrate a race. It wasn’t right.”. ...Read Full Story
