Megyn Kelly may end up losing her career after her blackface scandal. RadarOnline.com has learned the controversial Today host has already been dropped by her agents, and her namesake show is off the air for the rest of the week!

Instead of a new episode, Kelly's previous show about Elon Musk that originally aired on August 31 of this year hit the screen at 9 am this morning.

A NBC spokesperson told Us Weekly, "Given the circumstances, Megyn Kelly Today will be on tape the rest of the week."

A source even told CNN that she may never return to Today.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Kelly, 47, is no longer working with CAA because the agency also reps NBC News president Noah Oppenheim. Is she preparing for a showdown with the network?

Radar readers know the drama all began when the outspoken TV star said it was okay for white people to paint their faces darker on Halloween.

"You do get in trouble if you are a white person who puts on blackface for Halloween, or a black person who puts on whiteface for Halloween. Back when I was a kid, that was okay just as long as you were dressing as a character," Kelly said during a panel discussion on Tuesday, October 23.

Of course, Twitter exploded in anger. Kelly soon apologized, it was clearly too little, too late.
