D.L. Hughley Blasts Megyn Kelly And 'Fox News Live' On Their Own Network
"The only place racism doesn't exist is Fox News and the police department."
D.L. Hughley wasn't in a joking mood when he appeared on Fox News yesterday. The comedian and actor went head-to-head with anchor Megyn Kelly about racism and Black Lives Matter.
"The only place racism doesn't exist is Fox News and the police department," Hughley said during their heated conversation that covered the shootings of Philando Castile and Alton Sterling. Kelly replied: "That's insulting. You just insulted millions of people watching this channel." Hughley quickly fired back, "You know what? I'm insulted by the things I hear on this network, so we're even. I could care less about insulting people who insult me on a daily basis."
The King of Comedy star pointed out that cops are assumed innocent in situations of police brutality. "It is my belief that no matter what happens, no matter what we see, the cops are given a presumption of innocence," he said, per People. "If that same tape showed a suspect doing something, that would be all the prosecution we need. They would say, 'the evidence is all right here.' But a cop gets a presumption of innocence."
