Following the segment, Kelly reportedly sent an internal memo apologizing for her remarks after hearing colleagues and friends call her out.
The Top Chef host then made a decision to educate Kelly herself, writing: 'Because @megynkelly: minstrelsy is the basis for the coining of the term "Jim Crow" laws which served to humiliate & target Black Americans. I don't know how, like, that got racist on Halloween. Kelly-who once famously insisted on air that there was absolutely no way in hell Santa could be black-specifically focused on blackface, saying that when she "was a kid, [blackface] was okay, as long as you were dressing up as like a character".
"Real Housewives of New York" star Luann de Lesseps learned that lesson the hard way last Halloween when she painted her skin to dress up as singer Diana Ross.
I've never been a "pc" kind of person - but I understand that we do need to be more sensitive in this day and age.

Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson Have Ended Their Engagement
Both parties are yet to release any statements via their own social platforms however Pete Davidson has now deleted his accounts. Another source told Page Six that the tragic death of Grande's ex, rapper Mac Miller , threw the pop star for a major loop.
Earlier on Tuesday, while discussing how some colleges are banning certain potentially offensive costumes, Kelly declared "political correctness has gone amok". This is a time for more understanding, love, sensitivity and honour, and I want to be part of that.
"If you think it's offensive, it probably is", panelist Melissa Rivers weighed in, seeming to counter Kelly's stance, before veering into the topic of manners and polite society. "She wants to look like Diana Ross for one day.' I don't know how that got racist on Halloween". It's a good thing staking your argument about blackface on the "when I was a kid" line of logic isn't dated or risky, otherwise that would be a really silly way to defend your racist Halloween costume ideas. "On Halloween you've got guys running around with fake axes coming out of their head".
This is perhaps the most controversial statement Kelly has made since joining NBC and debuting on Today, where she took over the 9am slot after the network chose to cancel previous hosts Al Roker and Tamron Hall.
"I haven't seen it, but it sounds a little racist to me", Soboroff said.
Kelly has received backlash on social media for her comments. "Me too", Hager chimes in. "Blackface was NOT okay when we were kids", he tweeted. What she really means is that she grew up in the 1970s, before social media, in an overwhelmingly white NY suburb, so she never had to listen to the opinions of anyone who might give her insight into why blackface was never okay.
