Megyn Kelly will no longer host a gala for the Sandy Hook Promise Foundation after backlash over her upcoming interview with InfoWars owner Alex Jones.
Sandy Hook Promise — which was founded by family members of some of the victims of the 2012 Sandy Hook shooting — announced Monday that Kelly would no longer be hosting the annual Promise Champions Gala scheduled for Wednesday in Washington, D.C.
Kelly is facing backlash for her upcoming interview with Jones, a noted conspiracy theorist who believes the Sandy Hook Elementary school shooting was a hoax and says 9/11 was an inside job.
“Sandy Hook Promise cannot support the decision by Megyn or NBC to give any form of voice or platform to Alex Jones and have asked Megyn Kelly to step down as our Promise Champion Gala host,” Nicole Hockley, co-Founder and Managing Director of the organization said in a statement.
