TV host apologises for blackface comments

A high-profile TV host has apologised for saying that dressing up in blackface for Halloween is okay.
Megyn Kelly, a former Fox News presenter who hosts a morning show on NBC in the US, had questioned why it was considered racist when a reality star had darkened her skin for a Diana Ross costume.
On her programme, the 47-year-old said that dressing up in blackface was acceptable when she was young as long as you were impersonating a character.Several of Kelly's critics swiftly drew comparisons to her insistence that Santa Claus was white - an assertion she made while working at Fox News.Following a social media backlash, Kelly wrote an email to her colleagues to apologise, in which she acknowledged dressing up in blackface is wrong because of its abhorrent history in culture.
