The family of slain first-grade teacher Vicki Soto posted a letter to NBC and interviewer Megyn Kelly on Facebook, saying they are disgusted and disappointed in the decision to air an interview with "Infowars" host Alex Jones next Sunday.
NBC's Megyn Kelly kicked off her newest show, "Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly", only a few weeks ago.
NBC and news host Megyn Kelly are starting to see consequences to her controversial upcoming interview with conspiracy monger and InfoWars founder Alex Jones.
Nicole Hockley, who lost her 6-year-old son Dylan in Sandy Hook, also blasted the interview.
Now, The Washington Post has reported that Kelly has been dropped as the host for the annual Promise Champions Gala, a fundraising event to be held this Wednesday for the Sandy Hook Promise Foundation, a nonprofit gun violence prevention group founded by family members of Sandy Hook victims.
Kelly was slated to host the Promise Champions Gala on June 14.
It seems like there was nearly no way for this interview to go well, given the subject's proclivity for nonsensical rants, and considering that Kelly left out one crucial side to the story she was reporting - perspectives from the Sandy Hook parents who have to live with Jones' accusations they are actors paid to perform grief by the United States government for ... reasons.
"I felt zero attraction to Megyn Kelly", he added. "Our job is to shine a light", she said. He argues NBC should cancel the segment because it is a "rigged" report that misrepresents his views. The interview, which has caused an uproar due to Jones' promotion of several controversial conspiracy theories, is scheduled to air on June 18.
