Glenn Beck on Megyn Kelly 'blackface' controversy: 'We’re in the throes of cultural lawlessness'

NBC host Megyn Kelly has been under fire since Tuesday morning when she asked a panel on her show whether it's OK for white people to dress as black people for Halloween "as long as you're dressing like a character."

After intense backlash, Kelly issued the following apology in an email Tuesday afternoon:

By Wednesday morning, fellow NBC anchors Al Roker and Craig Melvin railed against Kelly, calling her comments “stupid” and “indefensible.

Kelly then offered up an extended apology during her Wednesday show:

Reports on Thursday say that Kelly has been dropped by talent agency, Creative Artists Agency and that the future of her NBC show could be in doubt. Read the latest developments on this story here.

On Thursday's episode of  “The Glenn Beck Radio Program,” Glenn reacted to the outrage over Kelly's comments as well as the politicization of Halloween costumes and other holiday traditions.

"Well, we got a nice preview of the outrage this year with all the tantrums that NBC News’ Megyn Kelly has caused with an admittedly tone-deaf but overall harmless opinion on 'Megyn Kelly Today,' during what should have been a civil conversation between four adults," Glenn said.

"Apologies aren't good enough anymore," he added. "We’re in the throes of cultural lawlessness, executions on-demand, and context or common sense don’t matter. Execute them! Hang them! Get rid of them! Guess what's happening next? She was dropped by her talent agency. She's a pariah now."

Producer Stu Burguiere noted that Kelly has been an outspoken critic of the way NBC handled several allegations of sexual harassment and assault over the past year.

"It seems to me that maybe she has a target on her for some of those things that she said, which is kind of fascinating because NBC, as we know, talks to us constantly about the inequality of the sexes and how [bad] those conservatives are," Stu said.
