MEGYN KELLY DROPPED AS HOST OF SANDY HOOK GALA
Renowned journalist Megyn Kelly has been asked to step down from her role as the host of a Sandy Hook Promise Foundation organized gala.
This decision was taken because of comments she made in her upcoming interview with Infowars’s Alex Jones. Alex Jones is of the opinion that the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in 2012 was a government hoax. Critics have called out Kelly for inviting Jones on “Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly” and accused her of supporting his claims.
“Sandy Hook Promise, a leading gun violence prevention organization, and NBC host Megyn Kelly have agreed that Kelly will no longer host the organization’s annual Promise Champions Gala on Wednesday, June 14th, in Washington DC,” the statement reads. “This decision was spurred by NBC’s planned broadcast of Kelly’s interview with conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, who believes the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, CT, was a hoax.”
A statement from the co-founder and managing director of the organization, Nicole Hockley also reads:
“Sandy Hook Promise cannot support the decision by Megyn or NBC to give any form of voice or platform to Alex Jones and have asked Megyn Kelly to step down as our Promise Champion Gala host. It is our hope that Megyn and NBC reconsider and not broadcast this interview.
Sandy Hook Promise is a gun violence prevention nonprofit that was established immediately after the 2012 mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.
