As Black Lives Matter protests erupted and athletes, including tennis and NBA players, chose to withdraw from games and competitions to take a stand, Kelly instead opted to post controversial comments on social media. She tweeted: “Jacob Blake was armed with a knife when cops shot him says Wisconsin AG.”

The host, who was famously fired from NBC over her controversial Blackface comments back in 2018, sparked online backlash over her post.
