Fox News’ Megyn Kelly responded to the firestorm of criticism over her assertion Wednesday that “Santa just is white” and “Jesus was a white man, too.”
Kelly explained she was responding to an essay by Aisha Harris in Slate.com called, “Santa Claus Should Not Be a White Man Anymore,” which called Santa “melanin-deficient” and “a fat old white man.”
“Is Santa Claus real, and what does he look like?” Kelly asked in her opening remarks Friday, adding that her comments had been “tongue-in-cheek.”
“Humor is a part of what we try to bring to this show, but sometimes that is lost on the humorless,” she said.
