TV host Megyn Kelly is no stranger to controversy but her latest comments about "blackface" may have gotten her NBC morning show canceled. Sources with knowledge of the situation say that NBC News chairman Andy Lack disapproved of Kelly aggressively covering stories about sexual harassment on her show, particularly related to NBC and disgraced anchor Matt Lauer, who was sacked last November.

Kelly's lawyer, Bryan Freedman - who is considered a top Hollywood attorney she recently hired, according to CNN - will reportedly meet with NBC News executives on Friday to discuss Kelly's role at NBC, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The blackface thing is a pretext, a "socially acceptable" reason for ending the Kelly experiment at NBC abruptly.
