NBC's Megyn Kelly wondered aloud Tuesday why white people dressing in blackface is considered racist.
'But what is racist?
"Back when I was a kid, that was okay just as long as you were dressing as a character", she said, referring to white people painting their faces black for Halloween. "Back when I was a kid, that was OK as long as you were dressing up as a character".
She then pointed to the decision by Real Housewives of NY star Luann de Lesseps to recently darken her features while dressing as Diana Ross. "I don't know how that got racist on Halloween".
"I think there are limits as to how far you want to go, because you're making people feel bad", Bush said, and Rivers added, "Normal people kinda know where that line is".
Kelly reflected on the controversy when Luann de Lesseps of the reality show "Real Housewives of New York" wore a Diana Ross costume. "You are on national television". You have a responsibility to educate yourself on social issues, Megyn Kelly. This is so damaging'.

Essentially, it aims to hide the noticeable space by interpolating between pixels or antialiasing slightly in front of the screen. However, Samsung is touting an improved display technology that purportedly reduces pattern noise for a "perceived PPI of 1,233".
"But on Halloween?" Kelly asked. Because caricaturing another race perpetuates the dehumanization of POC who are being killed & jailed at a disproportionate rate in the USA'.
Heidi Moore weighed in by tweeting: 'I literally can not imagine a bigger nightmare than 4 white people in aggressively orange makeup trying to derive among themselves why blackface is offensive. And here it is!' On Tuesday morning, Megyn Kelly added her two cents, but her argument likely didn't come out as she'd hoped.
This is certainly not Kelly's first controversial take on race, having previously declared on Fox News that both Santa Claus and Jesus were white.
"For all you kids watching at home, Santa just is white", she said to wrap up the segment that caused outrage, just as we assume her thoughts on blackface will.
She also said, "Jesus was a white man, too".
"You can not dress as a Native American".
Beginning with a story from the UK, Kelly showed costumes like a cowboy or a Native American, that the student union at the University of Kent has deemed offensive and banned. "If you're going to dress like an idiot, act like an idiot, and actually dress and be racist then somebody should say something to somebody", he said, "but you should still be able to dress like a moron".
