Megyn Kelly took to Twitter during the Vice Presidential debate to tell Kamala Harris to "take it like a woman," and social media has a lot of thoughts on her choice of words. Kelly commented after seeing Harris react to some of the answers Mike Pence offered during the conversation. She also added, "Don't make faces."
This comment has sparked many reactions of its own with actress Amber Tamblyn hitting back by tweeting at Kelly, "Unless it's blackface, am I right, Megyn?" This is about Kelly openly defending the use of blackface on her morning show, Megyn Kelly Today. She later apologized and then mutually parted ways with NBC, the network that aired the show. Now, Kelly is taking a lot of heat for her comments toward Harris. Scroll down to see what people on Twitter are saying.
Instead of “like a man.” We can be stoic too— Megyn Kelly (@megynkelly) October 8, 2020
That is a truly unfortunate selection of words you've chosen to use. Women are often told that exact same thing when forced into horrendous situations.

I seriously can’t think of a single person in the media who’s opinion is disregarded and disdained to the extent of @megynkelly— Thelonious Abstract (@PhantomCannibal) October 8, 2020
I'm sorry. I disagree w @megynkelly Perhaps women supported each other more & tore each other down less, we'd actually have a woman in the White House. Whether as President or Vice President. Facial expressions are better than verbal insults. He repeatedly interrupted her https://t.co/2hjp5FZT8O— Leslie Marshall (@LeslieMarshall) October 8, 2020
Nor is it your job to deliberately tear Senator Harris down. Pence was rude and dismissive, and such behavior should not be tolerated or encouraged by people of either gender. I suggest that you accept your complete irrelevance and stop trying to score cheap points.— Barb V 💛🐝💛 (@barbvas) October 8, 2020
