Megyn Kelly Nearly Breaks Down in Tears on Air, Shares Heartfelt Apology to Fans

Megyn Kelly became emotional on her show Thursday, sharing her regrets about past reporting on the issue of gender dysphoria and allowing children under 18 to pursue gender transition surgery or chemical therapies that some who transitioned are now publicly admitting they regret.

Speaking on the verge of tears, Kelly spoke passionately about her past positions which she says were misinformed and meant only to support young people struggling with their identity as male or female.

“I’ve realized now that I was part of this problem. My heart was in the right place. I wasn’t trying to push anything bad on kids. I thought I was being supportive of them,” she said.

“I thought I was promoting anti-bullying. Now I have such regret about it.”

Even before joining liberal NBC, Kelly covered the struggles of individuals like Laverne Cox, a well-known LGBT activist who rose to prominence on the Netflix series “Orange is the New Black,” on Fox News. Mentioning their interview, Kelly wrote on Facebook at the time that Cox “opened up in an emotional interview about her rocky childhood, attempted suicide and relationship with her mother.”

Last December, another Florida woman sued doctors in Rhode Island who performed her gender transition surgery, saying she was deceptively encouraged by them and outsiders like the American Academy of Pediatrics for pushing surgery on her at the age of 14.

Isabelle Ayala, now 20, told the New York Post that she is accepting the unwanted attention in an attempt to save other young people with similar struggles from rushing too hastily into a decision with lifelong consequences.

“I just really don’t want this to happen to other vulnerable young girls,” Ayala, who lives in Wellington, Florida, told The Post. “I don’t want puberty to be the enemy. I don’t want our natural biology to be the enemy.”

Kelly’s public contrition won plaudits from social media followers who credited her with acknowledging she may have been wrong to promote surgery as a solution.

“Good for her! More people need to understand. She has a huge following. It’s important she spread the right message, and that is sticking up for the truth,” wrote on follower.

“I have nothing but respect for Megyn Kelly. I also have a great deal of respect for Katlyn Jenner. Both exhibit honesty and balance. it is the use of false victimhood for political leverage that is reprehensible,” wrote another.

The former Fox News anchor commands her own significant following on her SiriusXM show and hasn’t been afraid to share her unvarnished opinions on social issues that resonate with conservatives.

In December, Kelly called for the boycott of Taylor Swift, saying her attendance at a comedy show raising funds for the American Near East Refugee Aid (ANERA) does a disservice to women trapped in the war zone between Israel and Hamas outposts around Gaza.

“I hope they boycott her events until she issues it because attending this thing was wrong,” she said, adding, “Do some googling — see what they do in Gaza to gays. See about women’s rights in Gaza, Taylor.”
