D.L. Hughley appeared on Fox News's The Kelly File Wednesday night, and he tore into Fox while discussing recent police shootings of black men. In the interview with Megyn Kelly, Hughley argued that police get an instant presumption of innocence following a shooting with video evidence. He went on to say civilians that committed the same shootings would quickly be found guilty.
The argument became heated when Kelly brought up the 2014 Ferguson police shooting of Michael Brown. She stated that while a Department of Justice investigation found systemic racism in the Ferguson Police Department, that did not necessarily mean the officer that shot Brown is racist. That's when Hughley cut her off with this:
The only place racism doesn't exist is Fox News and the police department.
Kelly didn't appreciate the comment, saying "That's insulting. You just insulted millions of people watching this channel." Hughley could've cared less:
You know what? I'm insulted by the things I hear on this network so we're even. I could care less about insulting people who insult me on a daily basis.
Kelly couldn't get the interview back on track after that, so she ended the segment. It's unlikely Hughley will be back on The Kelly File any time soon, unless they both feel like having a spat on live TV.
