NBC is planning to air Megyn Kelly’s interview with conspiracy theorist and talk show host Alex Jones on Sunday night. And the families of the victims of the Sandy Hook massacre — which Jones has repeatedly suggested was staged — are outraged.
Kelly confronted Jones about his Sandy Hook claims during the interview, but the victims’ families argued that NBC should not be giving the Infowars.com provocateur a platform.
Nelba Márquez-Greene — whose 6-year-old daughter, Ana Grace, was one of 20 children killed in the Dec. 14, 2012, school shooting in Newtown, Conn. — blasted Kelly in a series of tweets.
“Hey @megynkelly, let me know if you want to give his victims equal air time,” Márquez-Greene wrote. “Promoting this fool is bad news. Do not encourage his abuse.”
“It’s a miracle no #sandyhook parent has ended their life yet,” she continued. “The loss of a loved one and the constant [harassment] is too much.”
