Megyn Kelly’s peers continue to distance themselves from her after her controversial blackface comments, and now Amy Robach exclusively tells RadarOnline.com that Kelly has no one to blame but herself!

Speaking at the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF) Symposium and Awards Luncheon, the Good Morning America star said: “All I know is when you're on live television, you're responsible for what comes out of your mouth. I'm sure she is having a lot of time to reflect on what she said, and, you know, you learn when you make mistakes.”

As Radar reported, NBC has announced Kelly, 47, will not be returning to her morning hour show, as other network anchors will take her place for the foreseeable future.

Kelly has made controversial statements before, but the final straw seems to be the backlash after she argued that blackface is not racism if a person is dressing like a character.

“When you're on live television, everyone hears your mistakes,” Robach told Radar. Other morning show personalities demanded immediate action, including Today co-host Al Roker, who called for Kelly to go.

“Al’s not satisfied with Megyn’s apology and he’s disgusted with her and the network,” a source close to the weatherman legend told Radar. “He doesn’t think she’s good for the network and wishes they would just yank her.”

It looks like Roker will get his wish, as Radar has also revealed Kelly is in talks of a buyout at the peacock network and could be headed back to her old stomping grounds at Fox News. If she does land back at the conservative network, Robach hopes Kelly takes a harsh lesson with her.

“I only hope that through certain moments like this, for anybody, in anybody's career, in any moment, that you learned something from it,” Robach told Radar exclusively. “And that you’re a better person because of it.”
