Meet Douglas Brunt; this hunky fella is the supportive husband of journalist and news host, Megyn Kelly, the host for NBC News until her firing on October 26, 2018; after she commented that it was OK to use a blackface as part of a Halloween costume, adding that when she was a kid it that was okay as long as you were dressing up as like a character.
“I realize now that such behavior is indeed wrong, and I am sorry”, and that “I’ve never been a ‘pc’ kind of person — but I understand that we do need to be more sensitive in this day and age. Particularly on race and ethnicity issues which, far from being healed, have been exacerbated in our politics over the past year. This is a time for more understanding, love, sensitivity and honor, and I want to be part of that. I look forward to continuing that discussion.”
the damage was already done and a few days after her apology, she was out as host of NBC News
