While mocking the trash-fire that was Megyn Kelly’s debut on the Today show on Monday, I was clearly so preoccupied with that bizarre outfit she was wearing that I didn’t even realize that — during a Q&A with the stars of Will & Grace — she asked a fan if it was true that he became gay because of the show.
I mean, clearly it was a joke. But when you’re Megyn Kelly — late of Fox News, who believes there is a war on the Christian right in this country — maybe that’s not a joke you should make. Maybe have Jenny from Late Night with Seth Meyers come out and make that joke instead.
I don’t know if that is the reason why Debra Messing “regrets” going on Megyn Kelly’s show on Monday, or if she regrets going on the show because of Megyn Kelly, period. Either way, Messing — who plays Grace on Will & Grace — expressed said regret on Instagram yesterday:
“Honestly I didn’t know it was [Megyn Kelly] until that morning. The itinerary just said Today Show appearance. Regret going on. Dismayed by her comments.”
Dismayed by which comments? The very bad gay joke? Or the years-long assault against African Americans?
We may never know! The point is: Megyn Kelly is terrible, and one of the stars of one of NBC’s own shows is already expressing regret about appearing on the show of the woman the network chose to take them into the future. Great first week, Megyn!

That’s basically all of America’s reaction to Megyn Kelly.
