On Monday night, Fox News host Megyn Kelly was joined by former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee on The Kelly File. While introducing Huckabee, who is also the host of his own Fox News program, Kelly accidentally mispronounced his name in the most embarrassing way. She led in by saying, “… Arkansas Governor, Mike Huckabee, who’s the host of ‘F*ckabee’ … of ‘Huckabee’ right here on the Fox News channel.”
After social media blew up over the gaffe, Kelly addressed it via Twitter, saying, “Something else that happened on the program is also getting a lot of attention on Twitter and including this tweet from some nice man named Sean who said ‘Megyn you’re a delight to watch and gave a stoic performance after your slip up with Governor Huckabee’s name.’ I thought I was stoic too – I have a heart of a 12 year old boy.”
What do you think of Megyn Kelly’s little slip-up? Mike F*ckabee … er, Huckabee … appeared to handle it quite well.
