Gayle King was sort of shocked at Megyn Kelly’s recent blackface comments. The CBS This Morning co-anchor opened up about the controversy during an appearance on Thursday’s The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, noting that she’s been friendly with Kelly in the past.
“I know Megyn Kelly. I happen to like Megyn Kelly,” she said of the Megyn Kelly Today show host. “She and I went to the Kentucky Derby two years ago, and we bonded. I think she’s a very smart cookie, very smart at what she does.”
But that doesn’t mean that King supports Kelly’s recent comments.
“I think she clearly stepped in it. She made a terrible mistake,” the 63-year-old journalist said. “And I was surprised that she would make a mistake of that kind.”
