Megyn Kelly tried to attack Jemele Hill over the Bubba Wallace-NASCAR story

Megyn Kelly poses for pictures arriving at Nobu in New York, NY

When I finally saw Bombshell, I hated the fact that Charlize Theron’s performance and the script made Megyn Kelly seem somewhat sympathetic, interesting and cool. I hated that because Megyn has shown herself to be a pretty typical right-wing troll. Sure, she’s done one or two good things in her life, but the bulk of her words and actions are just so problematic. She’s been using her Twitter to insult racial-justice protesters, cherrypicking videos to lend credence to her belief that the cops are always the “good guys” and protesters are always horrible. But then she picked up on the Bubba Wallace story – Wallace’s team found what they thought was a noose in his NASCAR garage at Talladega. The FBI investigated and found that it was a noose, but it was basically a garage door pull and it had been there since last year, meaning it wasn’t targeting Bubba Wallace, the only black NASCAR driver.

Instead of breathing a sigh of relief that no one was committing hate crimes against the only black man in a Confederate-flag-waving 99.9% white sport, Megyn decided to… come for Jemele Hill. Jemele left ESPN a few years ago because of disagreements with the network on how to handle stories like this – where sports, politics, race and racism all come together. Jemele left ESPN so she could continue to speak and cover the issues she wanted to cover. And Megyn has a problem with that:

Megyn Kelly will remain problematic forever, won’t she? There’s so much wrong with this, with using the Wallace incident to attack Jemele. Megyn is putting a target on Jemele for hate from right-wing a–holes too. Anyway, Jemele decided that she had time last night:

Anyway, this is just a reminder that Jemele Hill is amazing and Megyn Kelly is a white supremacist who believes that Santa and Jesus are white. Have a good day!

    Jemele’s responses were perfect. Megyn Kelly is such an asshat and its embarrassing to remember how “we” thought she was going to be something different after the 2016 election.

  2. LaraK says:

    I said this in the other story too, but other drivers and their teams didn’t notice a noose hanging in their garage since LAST YEAR. So yeah, Jemelle is right.
    I mean, get a black person in there and they noticed right quick. But they only have one so it took this long.
    So right wing trolls really need to hold their victory lap.

      Bubba’s doubling down – that pic is clearly a noose, not a standard garage door pull. Whether it was directed at Bubba or done as a “joke” between white guys we know damn well what it was in reference to

    Megyn was lonely and needed some attention

    Not just white Jesus, Megyn made a point about Santa Claus being white, too.

    MK is no longer a thing and these are just lame attempts to stay relevant and get traffic to her page. Fox doesn’t need nor do they want her back so she’s got to stay busy in her basement somehow. JH is not the one to come for.

    Sometimes I wonder if I could be satisfied with a life that revolved around watching motorsports and going fishing. 🤔

    The far right or the woke left. The choice is clear.

    I see Megyn got the nose she deserves…

    • whatWHAT? says:

      ok, I had to go back and look.

      WEIRD. it looks like she chopped off the bottom half and put someone else’s nose on there.

      like, you know when they do those face mash-ups with the top half of one person and the bottom of another? and though the facial features “match” in the sense that they line up properly, you can obviously see that it’s two halves of two different people? yeah, that’s what it looks like.

      • EveV says:

        @Sarah/What what
        Totally agree with you both. I had to scroll back up too to take another look and WTH?! Like, what happened?? Too many nose procedures or… It actually looks like her nose has been broken and never healed properly so I think the last nose job went bad.

        As for the stands she takes or her tweets, she’s a right f*coming idiot and I cannot stand her.

    Those are some nifty remarks from Jemele, she’s got a way with words.

    • osito says:

      You should follow her Instagram if you have it. Not only is she great, but she reposts the best stuff.

    Jemele’s responses are excellent. Megyn needs to sit down.

    I watched Bombshell recently, it was well done and interesting, but I do hate that Megyn probably loved having Charlize play her. I do think they were a bit too sympathetic to the women’s politics and the nonsense they’ve spewed on Fox for so long, but I get that wasnt the focus of the movie.

    • Queen Meghan's Hand says:

      I enjoy Charlize Theron and Nicole Kidman as actresses but have stayed away from Bombshell because of reviews that state they soften the women’s politics in order to make them more sympathetic. Which…why? I think it would make it a more interesting–and accessible–movie if they dealt with the fact that part of these women’s jobs was to excuse and justify white violence.

      • lucy2 says:

        I think so too.
        After watching it, maybe soften and sympathize are the right words so much as they just kind of ignored it. Kate McKinnon’s character was really one of the few to bring it up.

    I just clicked into this story to comment once again how much I appreciate your thumbnail photo selections when covering awful people. Top notch. 10/10

    “Let me go pray to white Jesus” is the best clapback for an impotent racist troll.

  15. CindyP says:

    Pathetic how desperate she is to become relevant again
    Another huge swing & a miss
    More importantly, what has she done to her face?
    Her nose looks Michael Jackson..ish

    That NOSE, though!!!

    Megyn looks like a terrifying praying mantis…her inside ugliness has decided to show itself on the outside.
