Former Fox News and NBC Anchor Megyn Kelly took to Twitter Thursday with some harsh words for left-wing “cancel culture” after Teen Vogue Editor Alexi McCammond was essentially forced from her job after just two weeks.
McCammond, formerly a reporter for Axios, was more or less forced out – officially resigning – at Teen Vogue after alleged “racist and homophobic” tweets she had written as a teenager resurfaced.
Kelly pulled no punches, dropping expletives and appealing to a sense of limited time on this planet.
She implored society at large to stop cancelling each other for offenses far in our past.
NO!! This is such bullshit. Why are we doing this to ourselves?? These cruel and unnecessary public humiliations are self-inflicted torture. Please STOP. Remember people’s humanity. Remember grace. Remember how short a time we have and act accordingly. https://t.co/qkMwXJd3x6

Megyn Kelly Has Taken On The Woke Mob Before
Megyn Kelly is no stranger to the new breed of “woke” culture from the left.
Just recently, Kelly defended former “Good Morning Britain” Host Piers Morgan, who recently walked off the set of his show after refusing to apologize for his opinion of Duchess Meghan Markle’s comments during her recent interview with Oprah Winfrey.

I don’t know what happened w/ @piersmorgan at GMB. What I do know is he & Susannah have been a brilliant team that took risks & became must-watch TV. In an era of free speech being stifled everywhere, Piers fearlessly speaks his mind. We need more, not fewer like that in media.

Last fall, on an episode of her podcast “The Megyn Kelly Show,” she shared a letter that had been circulated among a group of parents at the school her children attended.
Kelly acknowledged that she was aware the faculty where her children attended school might lean left, and that while she did not necessarily agree with the ideology, it was not offensive to her.
But when the letter appeared, she said they had, “…gone around the bend. I mean they have gone off the deep end.”
The letter was from a woman named Nahliah Webber. Kelly claimed Webber was the executive director of something called the Orleans Public Education Network. Some of the highlights of the letter read like this:
“There is a killer cop sitting in every school where white children learn.”
“As black bodies drop like flies around us by violence at white hands, how can we in any of our minds conclude that whites are alright?”
“Where’s the urgency for school reform for white kids being indoctrinated in black death and protected from the consequences?”

Megyn Kelly Takes On The Girl Scouts
Kelly forcefully took on The Girl Scouts during an incident last year.
After Justice Amy Coney Barrett was confirmed to the Supreme Court, the Girl Scouts of America put out a tweet congratulating her.
The post from GSA read, “Congratulations Amy Coney Barrett on becoming the 5th woman appointed to the Supreme Court since its inception in 1789.” The tweet depicted all five of the female Supreme Court Justices.
But for leftists, only celebrating the accomplishments of liberal women is acceptable. They piled on the Girl Scouts for daring to celebrate a conservative woman’s incredible achievement.
Among the many replies, ‘Squad’ member Rep. Ayana Pressley chimed in:
What kind of patch does one earn for uplifting a woman who is the antithesis of justice? https://t.co/Z7TfkymPfL

The pressure was enough for the Girl Scouts. They promptly pulled the tweet and “apologized.”
Girl Scouts of the USA is a nonpolitical, nonpartisan organization. We are neither red nor blue, but Girl Scout GREEN. We are here to lift up girls and women.

Kelly wasn’t having any of it:
This is pathetic @girlscouts. It’s not “partisan” to generically congratulate the 5th woman ever to join the High Court. It’s patriotic. Taking your tweet down *is* partisan, however, and a real disappointment. https://t.co/ecct6oU8O4
