Megyn Kelly Slammed for Upcoming Alex Jones Interview: ‘Shame On You’ (Video)

”Info Wars“ host manages to offend in 97-second preview

Megyn Kelly previewed an upcoming interview with “Info Wars” host Alex Jones on Sunday night, prompting immediate backlash on Twitter from viewers upset that NBC is giving the conspiracy theorist a platform.

During the 97-second preview, Jones calls the attacks of Sept. 11 an “inside job,” questions the legitimacy of the shootings at Sandy Hook and says, “30 years ago, they began creating animal-human hybrids. Isn’t that the big story Megyn Kelly should be doing?”

“It was a riveting exchange. Promise you that,” Kelly teases.

In the preview, Kelly calls out Jones for dodging a Sandy Hook question, but that didn’t stop Twitter from unloading on NBC for the decision to feature the “Info Wars” host on “Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly.”

One journalist wrote, “Kelly’s goal here is to legitimize Alex Jones. The question is: why?”

Critics include media members, families of Sandy Hook victims and average NBC viewers. Check out some of the most powerful reactions:







Kelly responded to the criticism by tweeting, “Many don’t know him; our job is 2 shine a light.”

The interview airs Sunday, June 18 at 7 p.m. ET during “Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly” on NBC.
