If you thought twitter was savage on Steven Seagal last week, you haven’t seen anything yet. The twitter community took some nasty hits at Megyn Kelly recently. For those of you who don’t know, Megyn Kelly is a journalist and political commentator who previously worked for Fox News; if you still can’t recognize her, she had some pretty nasty back-and-forths with now President Donald Trump during the republican debates, and the President told CNN that “”[t]here was blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her wherever.”
Kelly now works at NBC and has her own show Megyn Kelly Today. Recently, she had on Tom Brokaw, journalist and special correspondent of NBC News. While Brokaw was answering an audience question on the recent incident in Las Vegas and his commentary on the NRA and gun control, Kelly abruptly cuts him off. Check out the clip:
Immediately people on Twitter were not having it:
Megyn Kelly interviewed Vladimir Putin and Alex Jones and shushed Tom Brokaw, she needs to retire!

Megyn Kelly's rude treatment of Tom Brokaw, just shows why this woman should NOT be on TV. NBC and Today made a HUGE mistake with her

Megyn Kelly is and always will be a Fox News shill. Shutting down Tom Brokaw when he criticizes NRA? NBC should fire her and send her back.

So the internet exploded, but what really happened? Was it an accident or intentional? According to Tom Brokaw himself in a brief interview with the Washington Post, it was all an accident. He stated that there were technical difficulties in the studio and that he didn’t have his earpiece, and that Megyn cutting him off wasn’t malicious. He says that all this uproar over a technical difficulty is unnecessary and he still sees Megyn Kelly in a favorable light.
The internet sure does know how to blow things out of proportion. Oh well, let’s hope for Megyn’s sake it all dies down.
