NBC's Megyn Kelly said during her show that it was okay for people to wear blackface and that she didn't understand why it would be considered racist.


CNN's Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon hammered Kelly for her ignorant comment.

"Megyn is 47 years old, she's our age, and there has never been a time in that 47 years that blackface has been acceptable," Lemon said. "There were all white people on that panel. There were no African-Americans, no people of color there to say that's not cool. I wonder how much diversity she has on her staff? I don't know, I'm not there, but I would imagine there's not a lot because people would have informed her."

Lemon continued, "I think people really need to educate themselves about this particular issue, and we need to realize in this culture that some people do have a privilege where they don't have to think about it."

Cuomo said that Kelly's language made him want to throw up and that her blatant ignorance was a result of the "Fox effect."
