Ask Megyn Kelly to Apologize for Insensitive Remark to Gay "Will & Grace" Fan

    Kelly, 46, debuted her morning show Megyn Kelly Today recently by promoting the return of Will & Grace, an acclaimed NBC comedy show.

    But then things got cringey. Kelly invited a fan, Russell Turner, on stage to meet Debra Messing and the rest of the show's stars.

    “Is it true that you became a lawyer — and you became gay — because of Will?” Kelly asked.

    Later, she said: “I don’t know about the lawyer thing, but I think the Will & Grace thing and the gay thing is going to work out great!"

    Turner took the comment in stride, but many people have expressed their disappointment on social media - including Debra Messing herself, who said to a fan on Instagram: “Honestly I didn’t know it was MK until that morning. The itinerary just said Today Show appearance. Regret going on. Dismayed by her comments.”

    Please sign this petition to ask Megyn Kelly to apologize for her insensitive remarks.
