It's official! NBC has canceled Megyn Kelly's morning show and FOX News doesn't want her back. Details inside...

More white woman tears are falling today.

NBC just announced that the "Megyn Kelly Today" show has been axed from the lineup and will be filled by other TODAY co-anchors during her 9AM slot, following the blackface backlash.

"Megyn Kelly Today is not returning," an NBC News spokesperson said. "Next week, the 9 a.m. hour will be hosted by other TODAY co-anchors.” The writing was on the wall already.

It was previously announced she would be out for the rest of the week, with rumors swirling that she would be out indefinitely. She recently parted ways with CAA and was looking to sign up on UTA, but they were like, "We're good luv, enjoy." Also, the "House of Cards" guests backed out on an appearance at the last minute.

The former FOX News primetime star caught heat after she defended the use of blackface for Halloween costumes during an episode of her show. She then offered up an apology and brought TV One commentator Roland Martin on the show to school her and her audience on the origins of blackface. However, that wasn't enough to keep her job.

It's being reported she may still stay with the network, but it's unlikely. While she may shedding white tears over losing her show, she's STILL going to get those coins. NBC will buy out her $69 million contract, so there's that.

As for what's next for Megyn? It's unclear. What we do know is she will NOT be making a return to FOX News even though she was once one of their top primetime stars on the network. FOX News told USA Today "there isn’t room for Kelly right now in the conservative news channel’s primetime lineup."

Welp. Sorry, not sorry.

We wonder what Tamron Hall is doing....
