Is Tua Tagovailoa Black? Megyn Kelly slams ‘dumbass’ MSNBC host Tiffany Cross for 'racist' remarks
MSNBC host Tiffany Cross slammed by Megyn Kelly who called her “moron” and “dumbass”, and also said that she is “the most racist person on television” for suggesting Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa is Black. Just days after sustaining an apparent concussion, the Hawaiian-born NFL star was allowed to play in the September 29 game between the Dolphins and Cincinnati Bengals.
Tagovailoa was stretchered off the field after he was slammed to the ground during the game and remained down for more than seven minutes. Tagovailoa appeared to display tonic posturing while on the ground, with his splayed fingers frozen in front of his face. On her MSNBC show Saturday, Cross made an irrational racist remark by saying Tagovailoa incident showed the NFL’s casual attitude toward the health of its players, majority of whom are Black.
“To see all these Black men crashing into each other with a bunch of White owners, White coaches, and the complete disregard for Black bodies and Black life,” said Cross, according to New York Post. “I mean, it just represents a larger issue.” Kelly, being outspoken, quickly pounced upon her remarks and subsequently slammed Cross for her “stunningly racist” comments. “He’s not Black. Hello? You dumbass, Tiffany Cross,” the former Fox and NBC anchor said on the Tuesday broadcast, October 11, of her SiriusXM podcast 'The Megyn Kelly Show'. “She’s the most racist person on television. It’s amazing. Maybe she just doesn’t see color,” Kelly added.
Kelly continued, “Anyway, he’s not Black, but according to her, he is.” Kelly also said Mike McDaniel, the Dolphins head coach is biracial. McDaniel was widely criticized for allowing Tagovailoa to play just days after he stumbled off the field. “Oh, and by the way, his coach isn’t White either,” Kelly said.
MEAWW previously reported that Kelly said she would much rather have her husband, Douglas Brunt, have a one-night stand with another woman than see him form an emotional relationship and "sit and cry" with her. The subject was raised when the two started talking about the rumors that Tom Brady and his supermodel wife, Gisele Bundchen, were having a divorce shortly. Kelly learned about the divorce from various news outlets, where it was reported that the couple hired lawyers after having an "epic fight" over Bundchen's apparent displeasure with Brady's decision to sign with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for another season.
Professor and marketing expert Saad, Kelly's guest, commented that while he was "entering speculation land," Brady's return to football "seems to be an unlikely reason they would have broken up." Saad claimed that women "get more triggered and more angry and more jealous by emotional infidelity rather than sexual infidelity," from the perspective of "evolutionary psychology."
