Two days after she was blasted by viewers for her blackface comments, Megyn Kelly did not show up to host the TODAY show this morning— and no one at NBC seemed to care!

Off camera, Hoda Kotb and Savannah Guthrie  "were chatty," an onlooker told RadarOnline.com exclusively. "It was definitely business as usual. Nobody seemed to miss Megyn!"

While the crew was torn apart over Matt Lauer's shocking firing last fall, the talent and crew appeared normal, the eyewitness insisted:

"It wasn't like how it was with Matt, where people were crying everywhere you turned. It was just another day for everyone else, and she didn't seem missed."

On Tuesday, the controversial host said white people should be able to darken their faces for Halloween without seeming racist. While Kelly, 47, soon apologized for her insensitive remarks, she failed to show up to the morning show this Thursday — and sources said she may not come back at all.

The star's racist comments came after longtime TODAY host Lauer was axed following multiple accusations of sexual misconduct. At the time, Guthrie and Kotb voiced their shock and devastation over the matter, and nearly broke down in tears when announcing his firing on live TV.

The revelation doesn't come as a surprise to readers who know Kelly hasn't made many friends during her time at NBC. In fact, a network source told Radar yesterday that Al Roker remains "disgusted" with her, and hopes she gets fired.

Do you think Megyn Kelly will be welcomed back to TODAY after her blackface comment? Sound off below.
