Megyn Kelly has slammed Tiffany Cross, calling the “woke” MSNBC host “the most racist person on television.”
Kelly fired back over Cross’s misinformed comments about the NFL’s handling of Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa’s concussion.
Tagovailoa suffered an injury against the Buffalo Bills last month.
He took a hit from Bills linebacker Matt Milano, which caused him to slam to the ground, appearing disoriented afterward and stumbling as he tried to get to his feet.
Tagovailoa was immediately taken to the locker room and taken through the NFL’s concussion protocol, after which he was cleared of any head injury.
He started the third quarter, drawing criticism from viewers about why he was allowed to return to the game.
The NFL and NFL Players Association concluded in a joint investigation that the correct protocol had been followed.
However, Cross tried to paint the incident as a racial issue and loosely compared black sports stars to slaves.
To further advance her divisive narrative, Cross even made false claims about the race of Tagovailoa and the Dolphins’ coach.
“To see all these black men crashing into each other with a bunch of white owners, white coaches, and the complete disregard for black bodies and black life,” Cross said.
“I mean, it just represents a larger issue.”
Kelly called Cross’s comment “stunningly racist,” noting that Tagovailoa is from Hawaii and is a Samoan.
She said: “He’s not black. Hello? You dumbass, Tiffany Cross.
“She’s the most racist person on television.
“It’s amazing,” the former Fox News star continued.
“Maybe she just doesn’t see color.
“Anyway, he’s not black, but according to her he is.
“Oh, and by the way, his coach isn’t white either.
“I wasn’t planning on starting with this moron Tiffany Cross, but it’s so good.
“He’s Samoan and his coach is mixed race.
“Had a white parent and a black parent.
“So, anyway, he’s not white.
“I guess in Tiffany’s world that’s white.
“But in any event, this person sees everything through an ‘it’s racist’ prism,” she said.
