Megyn Kelly - Megyn Kelly Causes Outrage With Pepper Spray Remarks24 November 2011
Kelly told Bill O'Reilly, "Listen, I know the tape looks bad, I agree it looks bad, all I am saying is from a legal standpoint, I don't know that the cops did anything wrong. We're going to have to learn more about the facts," whilst also stating, quite factually, that pepper spray is "a derivative of actual pepper, it's a food product, essentially." However Twitter didn't take kindly to this and a 'megynkellyessentially' trending topic sprung up, whilst TheChange.org has a petition numbering some 16,000 plus demanding the 41 year old eat spray pepper live on air.
However, it's also been pointed out that the news presenter also argued in favour of the Occupy protestors within the same segment, remarking of the police offer doing the spraying in footage obtained from the incident "Really? Does this guy look like he feels threatened? I don't know," when questioned about whether the police acted out of intimidation.
