AceShowbiz - The rough first week of Megyn Kelly's segment on "Today" continues. The new NBC show, which premiered on Monday, September 25, sparked yet another controversy during its Thursday episode. An unidentified cameraman accidentally stepped into the frame while the host was interviewing soccer star Carli Lloyd.
The man momentarily blocked the view of Kelly and Lloyd. And once he realized his gaff, he moved out of the way and loudly yelled "s**t!" off camera.

This is hardly the first time for Kelly's show to cause controversy. Just recently, the former Fox news host landed in hot water after asking Jane Fonda about plastic surgery. "You admit that you've had work done, which I think is to your credit. And you look amazing. Why did you say, I read that you said, you're not proud to admit you had work done. Why not?" she asked.
Fonda, who guested on the premiere alongside Robert Redford to promote their movie "Our Souls at Night", looked clearly unhappy with the question and responded, "We really want to talk about that right now?" The actress later added, "Good attitude, good posture, take care of myself - but let me tell you why I love this movie, 'Our Souls at Night', rather than plastic surgery."
Kelly was also highly criticized online following her gay remarks during "Will & Grace" cast appearance on the same day. She invited a gay superfan of the comedy to the stage, joining stars Debra Messing, Eric McCormack, Megan Mullally and Sean Hayes. The 46-year-old host asked the fan, whose name is Russel Turner, if he's gay because of his love for McCormack's Will Truman. She also said, "I don't know about the lawyer thing, but I think the 'Will & Grace' thing and the gay thing is going to work out great!"
Debra expressed on an Instagram comment that she regretted going on the show, and revealed that she was dismayed by Kelly's comments. However, a recent report suggested that the actress was given a stern warning from NBC bosses for slamming fellow NBC star. "Debra was told to cut it out by someone high up in the NBC Entertainment division run by Bob Greenblatt, via her agent or publicist," a source claimed.
