There have been many controversial hosts on Fox News. Megyn Kelly is certainly one of them, given her divisive arguments — like 2013’s “Santa Claus is white” fiasco and so much more. Her comments have often gotten her into hot water with not just the public, but celebrities.
Some of these celebrities became angry after interacting with her on television. Others ended up taking offense to her after she said something about them. So which celebrities ended up feuding with the host? Here are seven celebrities who dissed Kelly.
1. Donald Trump
The most notable feud was between presidential candidate, Donald Trump, and Kelly, who was still working at Fox News. It all started when she was helping moderate the Republican presidential debate in May 2016. Things took a turn when Kelly tried to get Trump to address his previous comments.
“You’ve called women you don’t like fat pigs, dogs, slobs and disgusting animals,” said Kelly. But the candidate didn’t like that so he took to Twitter to insult Kelly’s job as a moderator.
“Wow, @megynkelly really bombed tonight. People are going wild on twitter! Funny to watch,” he tweeted. He also went on CNN to talk about Kelly, saying ,”There was blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her wherever.” Kelly seemed to try to avoid engaging with him anymore afterward.
“It was bizarre because I became the story. He was so very focused on me that I became the story, and you know, you never want to be the story when you’re a newsperson,” she later told ABC News. “You want to be covering the story, so it was like an Alice Through the Looking Glass experience.”
