*Fox News host Megyn Kelly got into it with guest D.L. Hughley Wednesday night while discussing the fatal police shooting of Philando Castile on “The Kelly File.”
Hughley was annoyed to learn the previous segment included Mark Fuhrman, the detective who claimed to have found O.J. Simpson’s bloody glove in his 1995 murder trial, but was also exposed as having lied about using the N-word on numerous occasions.
When Kelly brought up the case of Mike Brown, Hughley said police officers are given the benefit of the doubt that others aren’t.
“The only place racism doesn’t exist is Fox News and the police department,” he said sarcastically. “That’s absolutely true.”
“That’s insulting,” a shocked Kelly said. “You just insulted millions of people watching this channel.”
“And I’m insulted by the things I hear on this network, so we’re even,” the comedian replied. “I could care less about insulting people that insult me on a daily basis.”
Kelly conceded that white people and black people can perceive interactions with police differently, then cautioned against assuming race is a factor in police shootings before all the facts come out.
Hughley said a 2006 FBI report found white supremacists were “rife” in U.S. police departments and refused to give cops the benefit of the doubt.
“It’s very dangerous when you get to the point where you paint an entire group with the same brush based on the bad actions of a few people,” Kelly said.
“That is amazing to hear on this network, that really is,” Hughley responded.
