Megyn Kelly once again took aim at Charlize Theron, the Oscar-winning actress who played the former Fox News host in the hit 2019 film “Bombshell,” saying that she was showing her “privilege” by declaring that she would “f–k up” anyone who opposed drag queens performing for children.
Kelly used her SiriusXM podcast on Monday to clap back at the criticism she received for her comment on Friday in which she invited Theron to “come and f–k me up.”
Kelly was responding to Theron’s declaration last week during a telethon to benefit drag queens.
“If you don’t understand, Charlize, and LGBTQ Nation, and whoever else came after me for the Friday comments…that there actually is a problem, and if you’re not equally outraged about it, then you are part of the problem,” Kelly said.
“You’re setting the stage for further grooming and exploitation of children.”
Kelly said that Theron’s comments were “disturbing” because “pedophiles” target children from poorer backgrounds.
“She’s rich, she’s famous, she’s beautiful, I’m sure she has a staff that looks like Downton Abbey,” Kelly said, adding: “Guess who the pedophiles go after first?”
“The kids from broken homes, the poor kids, the kids who have a parent who’s addicted to drugs
“She can lay the groundwork all she wants for drag queen performances everywhere,” Kelly said of Theron.
“She’s not going to have to pick up the mess.”
The Post has sought comment from Theron’s representatives.
Theron made an appearance during a telethon titled “Drag Isn’t Dangerous,” which ended up raising some $500,000.
“I will f–k anybody up who is, like, trying to f–k with anything with” drag queens, Theron said during Sunday’s telethon.
Theron denounced proposed laws in GOP-run states that aim to ban public drag shows.
“There are so many things that are hurting and, really, killing our kids, and we all know what I’m talking about right now and it ain’t no drag queen,” Theron said.
“If you’ve ever seen a drag queen lip-sync for her life, it only makes you happier, it only make you love more, it makes you a better person.”
“Please support all the great organizations that are out there helping all of this nonsense go away like it should,” the Oscar winner said.
“All of these incredibly stupid policies. Bye! No more room for hate, only love, and love equals drag queens!”
Lawmakers in Tennessee, Kentucky, and Montana have proposed legislation in recent weeks cracking down on public drag performances.
