Megyn Kelly proudly bared her ignorance of social norms by unabashedly wondering what exactly was so wrong with Blackface.
Kelly's transition from Fox News to her own 9 a.m. hour as part of the "Today" show has been anything but smooth, and Tuesday's incident doesn't help.
"But what is racist?".
On "Megyn Kelly Today", the controversial TV personality held a roundtable discussion on offensive Halloween costumes, questioning whether a white person who puts on blackface - or a black person putting on whiteface - is truly racist. To Megyn, doing blackface is totally fine if you're dressed as a character.
The whole debate kicked off with Kelly referencing a story out of England, where one institute of higher learning has banned some costumes this year. "If she really wanted to look like Diana Ross, she should have dressed like Michael Jackson". "And people said that was racist, and I don't know".
"I think there are limits as to how far you want to go, because you're making people feel bad", Bush said, and Rivers added, "Normal people kinda know where that line is". "She wants to look like Diana Ross for one day.' I don't know how that got racist on Halloween".

What's more, the Duchess's tour style has been well within the bounds of royal protocol - until yesterday, day seven on the tour. The full-length cape blue dress is by label SAFiYAA , designed by by German-born London-based designer Daniela Karmuts.
"I haven't seen it, but it sounds pretty racist to me", said NBC correspondent Jacob Soboroff.
Jenna Bush hager then chimed in, adding: 'Me too'.
"I've never been a "pc" kind of person - but I understand that we do need to be more sensitive in this day and age".
Heidi Moore weighed in by tweeting: 'I literally can not imagine a bigger nightmare than 4 white people in aggressively orange makeup trying to derive among themselves why blackface is offensive.
Kelly has not commented on the controversy.
"You can not dress as a Native American. I mean, isn't the objective of Halloween to dress up and pretend you're something other than yourself?" You can't dress as a nun.
She got a round of applause for that comment, and called colleges discouraging students from wearing stereotypical costumes "absurd". What she really means is that she grew up in the 1970s, before social media, in an overwhelmingly white NY suburb, so she never had to listen to the opinions of anyone who might give her insight into why blackface was never okay. Oh, and Jesus, too.
All three panelists seemed genuinely confused as to why one would want to dress as Weinstein, with melissa Rivers noting: 'That's creepy'.
