Report: Megyn Kelly OUT at NBC

NBC anchor Megyn Kelly appears to be out at NBC. Her "blackface" comments earlier this week appear to have been enough for network producers to break her $69 million contract, according to a new report from the Daily Mail.

During a discussion on cultural appropriation and Halloween costumes on Tuesday, Kelly said it was "okay" to wear blackface when she was a kid. Even her own coanchors condemned her "ignorant" and "racist" dialogue. Kelly apologized the following day with a tearful statement about how she never meant to add to the cultural divisions in America.  

She was absent Thursday morning, as NBC decided to air a rerun of her program, a telling sign for her future at the network.
