Megyn Kelly Explains Fat Shaming Comment, Says She Was Bullied: 'My Entire Family Is Overweight'

  Megyn Kelly Explains Fat Shaming Comment, Says She Was Bullied: 'My Entire Family Is Overweight' Megyn Kelly is backtracking in regards to her statements on fat-shaming. During an interview Thursday on Todaywith fit mom Maria Kang – best known for her “No Excuses” campaign and on the show to discuss her revised stance, which includes encouraging moms to identify their reasons for working out— Kelly made a controversial comment. “You should parlay the shaming thing into a professional business. Because some of us want to be shamed,” said the host. “When I was in law school, I was gaining weight, I said to my stepfather, ‘If you see me going into that kitchen one more time, you say, ‘Where you going, fat a–?’ And it works!” On Friday, Kelly clarified her position, saying she “would never encourage [body shaming] toward any person,” and even spoke candidly about her own experience with weight issues and those of her family. “I said something yesterday on the show that clearly struck a nerve, and I think it’s a conversation we need to have openly,” Kelly said. “We were discussing body shaming others, something I absolutely do not support. In fact, quite the opposite.” Kelly went on to confess that her “entire family is or has been overweight or obese.” She shared that her sister was, at one point, over 300 lbs. and had gastric bypass surgery, and that when she was 6 years old, she came home “in tears” after a neighbor called her mom “fat.

SNL: Aidy Bryant slams Mark Wahlberg for delayed response to 'public shaming'

  SNL: Aidy Bryant slams Mark Wahlberg for delayed response to 'public shaming' Mark Wahlberg may have donated his seven-figure All the Money in the World reshoot fee to the Time’s Up Legal Defense Fund, but Aidy Bryant reminded Saturday Night Live viewers that the issues behind the controversy remain alive and well. Appearing as herself on “Weekend Update,” Bryant took the dramatic reshoot wage gap between Wahlberg and Michelle Williams as her primary topic of discussion. On Tuesday, USA Today reported that Wahlberg received $1.5 million while Williams made less than $1,000 for returning to re-film key scenes with Christopher Plummer in the kidnapping drama. Plummer replaced Kevin Spacey, who was removed from Ridley Scott’s film after multiple sexual assault allegations were made against him. “Everyone’s talking about how women should negotiate harder and ask for more money, and that’s true,” Bryant said to “Weekend Update” co-anchor Colin Jost. “And, I really think women are ready to do that, but I feel like maybe, just maybe, men could be just like [a little] more [decent].” Additional reporting by USA Today indicated that Wahlberg, who is represented by the same agency as Williams in WME, refused to approve Plummer as Spacey’s replacement without securing a seven-figure payment. (Reps for Wahlberg and WME did not respond to EW’s request for comment at the time.) Backlash against the Oscar-nominated actor grew, with the likes of Jessica Chastain, Judd Apatow, and Critics’ Choice Awards host Olivia Munn sharply criticizing the reported disparity.

"Today" host says she asked her stepdad to call her " fat ass" after she 'd gained some weight. “Today” host Megyn Kelly revealed her secret to staying thin — fat shaming . “ Some of us want to be shamed ,” she said .

Megyn Kelly revealed on NBC’ s Today that she supports fat shaming to some degree. On Thursday, Kelly was interviewing “Fit Mom” Maria Kang when she advised, “You should parlay the shaming thing into a professional business. Because some of us want to be shamed .”

"My husband does that to me all the time," said Kang. "I tell him my goals and if it's early in the morning and he sees me still in bed, he's like 'what are you doing in here.'"

Kang continued, saying how her husband encouraged her to stick to her fitness goals by hiding the potato chips in their home.

This is not the first time Kelly has made uncomfortable on-air comments. Shortly after her show debuted, Kelly earned an on-air rebuke from Jane Fonda for asking her questions about plastic surgery. Kelly also told a "Will & Grace" fan that "the gay thing" was working out great for him.

Kelly's show has been plagued by historically low ratings since its debut in September

Before moving to "Today," Kelly had a long career at Fox News, but one that was not entirely gaffe-free either. In one of her most cringeworthy moments, the host declared on-air that Santa Claus was white.

Jane Fonda pokes fun at Megyn Kelly after Lily Tomlin facelift joke

  Jane Fonda pokes fun at Megyn Kelly after Lily Tomlin facelift joke Remember a few months ago when Megyn Kelly asked Jane Fonda a super awkward question about plastic surgery? Fonda sure does. Fonda and Lily Tomlin appeared on Today on Tuesday to talk about the upcoming return of Grace and Frankie — and crack a few jokes at each other’s expense.When Hoda Kotb asked the pair how long they’d known each other, Tomlin turned to Fonda and joked, “I think before your first facelift.” As Kotb and co-host Savannah Guthrie dissolved into laughter, Fonda replied, “Who are you, Megyn Kelly?” In September, Fonda and Robert Redford appeared on one of the first episodes of Megyn Kelly Today, where the host asked Fonda about her history with plastic surgery. Fonda shut her down with a curt response, telling Kelly, “We really want to talk about that right now?” In later interviews, Fonda opened up about how she thought it was inappropriate for Kelly to ask the question when she and Redford were there to promote their Netflix movie, Our Souls At Night. “Given the fact that we don’t have a lot of time and Bob is right here, it was a weird thing to bring up — whether I’ve had plastic surgery or not,” she toldET Canada. “I have and I’ve talked about it. But it just seemed like the wrong time and place to raise that question.

Fox’ s Megyn Kelly on Monday said that if the New York Times doesn’t want to cover Bill Clinton’ s problems with women, the so-called paper of record should be “ shamed ” into doing so.

Megyn Kelly is one of the most talked about names in journalism, but her husband is a household name in his own right. It all started when Kelly and Stern unabashedly got on the subject of her breasts and she indulged in the topic without shame , saying that she and Brunt "used to call them
