In Cringey Moment, Fox News' Jesse Watters Mixes Up Two Black Journalists

R Kelly Accusers

"Hats off to Gayle King for totally redeeming herself after the Smollett fiasco, ' he said, referring to Roberts" interview with Empire star Jussie Smollett last month (left). Then it would have been said that Roberts had conducted a patient, nonjudgmental and satisfactorily probative interview (except by the people still determined not to believe Smollett, and there would have been some). I never thought that he was going to hurt me, ' Gayle, who revealed best friend Oprah called to check on her after the interview, said on CBS.

But people sent her video of the incident, after which she emailed Perino.

Among those who heaped plaudits on King for keeping her composure-as well as her line of questioning-was host of Fox News show The Five, Jesse Watters.

Kelly remains jailed. Meanwhile, police in Detroit said Wednesday they want to talk to a woman who claims Kelly sexually assaulted her in 2001 when she was 13 years old.

After he was corrected, Watters said, with even more cringe-worthy confidence, "Oh, I knew that". Instead, she said, "I thought we were witnessing the self-destruction of a man having a breakdown, and that's never a good thing to see".

'Oh, I knew that, ' Watters replied. "I go out with them, I kick it with them". "But I did think on some level he would have a moment of reflection, he would have contrition".


'It was a no-win situation for me, ' she explained.

Roberts also said that she tried to be fair due to her ties with African Americans and the LGBT community.

At one point Kelly called Gayle's questions "stupid" and then jumped out of his chair, wildly gesticulating just inches away from her.

"How stupid would it be for me, with my insane past and what I've been through - oh right, now I just think I have to be monster, and hold girls against their will, chain them up in my basement, and don't let them eat, don't let them out, unless they need some shoes down the street from their uncle!" You all quit playing! This is not me! Y'all killing me with this s-! If I'm too light on him, it's like, "Oh, because you are in the community, you're giving him a pass"'.

CBS will air King's entire interview with the R&B singer as part of a one-hour primetime special on March 8 at 8 p.m. ET.
