The American public has been rocked by numerous scandals recently. Over the past few weeks, many high-profile figures have been accused of sexual harassment and misconduct.
On Wednesday, one of the most famous news anchors in America was terminated. Matt Lauer has been fired from the Today Show after numerous women revealed the harassment they endured from Lauer over the years.
After the news broke of Lauer's scandal, Megyn Kelly made some major remarks about the situation. Most people expected her to remain silent, or to take Matt's side. However, she surprised a lot of people. Many praised her for her comments and her response has been seen by thousands of people online.
“This one does hit close to home,” Kelly said. “I, too, have known Matt for a long time, and he has been a friend and kind and supportive to me in my transition to NBC News, and I see the anguish on my colleagues’ faces.”
“What we don’t see is the pain on the faces of those who found the courage to come forward, and it is a terrifying thing to do,” Kelly said. “We don’t see the career opportunities women lose because of sexual harassment or the intense stress it causes a woman dealing with it when she comes to work each day. I am thinking of those women this morning and hoping they are okay. The days to come will not be easy," she concluded.
