While not strictly social in nature, a newly viral on Facebook satire piece stating a clearly out of touch with reality Megyn Kelly has been committed has been making the rounds a bit — because it’s really funny.
Just in case, the tale of Megyn Kelly’s hospitalization in a NYC psych ward is not true — but the Fox News anchor’s recent, shrill freakout demanding we all accept that Santa is white, okay?!?! sort of felt like a point of genuine divergence from the real world.
Our Facebook friends have been tickled by the newslo.com satire, which jokes:
“On Wednesday, Kelly used a portion of her show to attack a recent Slate.com article that argued Santa Claus needn’t always be portrayed as a white man, since children of color often feel left out. ‘For all you kids watching at home, Santa just is white,’ Kelly said. ‘But this person is just arguing that maybe we should also have a black Santa. But Santa is what he is.’ … Doctors say that ‘only someone very deranged would argue about a make-believe character’s race,’ and Bass believes that Kelly will need months of close psychiatric attention in order to get better.”
“‘We’re not just dealing with the Santa Claus delusion,’ Dr. Bass explained. ‘Megyn also called it a ‘verifiable fact’ that ‘Jesus was a white man, too.’ Now, most people who aren’t crazy know that Jesus was a Middle Eastern Jew, which isn’t exactly WASP, so you can see how troubled Ms. Kelly’s mind has become.'”
So while Megyn Kelly wasn’t put under observation due to her Santa Claus rant, feel free to share this humor piece about her statements — everyone else is. And ICYMI, above, a clip of Kelly’s remarks.
