Megyn Kelly argues for former NBC employees who have experienced sexual harassment to come forward and share their stories.
The 48-year-old went to Twitter on Tuesday to provide the contact details of an organization that supports ex-employees, after the network agreed to release employees from confidentiality agreements.
& # 39; Sources tell me: more victims of NBC harassment come forward behind the scenes & # 39 ;, Kelly wrote. & # 39; If you are a victim or have information about: a sexual harassment situation with NBC – whether you have made a claim or not – Silence Breakers confirms that it provides confidential support: firstname.lastname@example.org
Kelly's tweet comes a year after she was fired from NBC for controversial comments about Blackface – and she seems to be showing great interest in the current crisis affecting her former network.
After sharing the contact details for former employees, Kelly could not resist taking a potshot at NBC and writing another tweet that reads: & # 39; Nor would it be nice if NBC were an external investigator so that Silence Breakers and the Time & # 39; s Up The Legal Defense Fund didn't have to do all this? & # 39;

The 48-year-old went to Twitter on Tuesday evening to provide the contact details of an organization that provides support to former employees after the network agreed to release employees from confidentiality agreements. She also retweeted a post from The LA Times that seemed to hint that she supported the resignation of NBC News President Noah Oppenheim
At the end of last week, she also retested a post from The Los Angeles Times, reporting that & # 39; 20,000 had signed a petition calling for the dismissal of NBC News President Noah Oppenheim for & # 39; troubling reports & # 39; of his role to hide & # 39; abuse & # 39; & # 39;
Oppenheim and other NBC executives have come under fire in recent weeks following the release of the book Catch and Kill by Ronan Farrow. In the explosive tell-all, the journalist claims that those executors & # 39; increased severance payments & # 39; victims of sexual harassment in exchange for their silence.
In the wake of the outrage, NBCUniversal agreed last week to relieve former staff members of their confidentiality agreements.
The company issued a statement last Friday stating: & # 39; Any former NBC News employee who believes he cannot disclose his sexual harassment experience as a result of a confidentiality or non-conflict clause must contact with NBCUniversal and we will exempt them from that perceived obligation & # 39 ;.
Kelly called on the network to do that during an appearance on Fox News on October 16.

In the interview, she also theorized that some of the improved termination benefits may have been given to women who were harassed by NBC star Matt Lauer, who was terminated at the end of 2017 for misconduct.
& # 39; The most important thing to do now is to release all Matt Lauer accusers of their confidentiality agreements. NBC says it has nothing to hide. Excellent. Let's not hide anything, & Kelly said.
& # 39; Show us all agreements, the improved departure agreements reached or at least the number, so that we can see which ones stand out and which ones are super high. Are they all women? Do they all have a connection with Matt Lauer? Release the women from their duty of confidentiality. & # 39;
She also affected the network because she did not allow external investigation into claims of sexual misconduct, something that both Fox News and CBS did after claims of sexual misconduct and abuse of power on their networks came to light.

& # 39; There is a matter of public trust and confidence and the reporting of NBC on matters relating to themselves. For me as a lawyer, it's just always better if you send it outside, & Kelly said.
& # 39; Then people can be more confident and if there is nothing to hide, you don't have to worry. There is nothing to worry about. & # 39;

Kelly & # 39; s interest in the NBC scandal may not have been motivated by revenge, but rather by the fact that she herself was the victim of sexual harassment while working at Fox News.
The blonde anchor helped change the sea at Fox, leading to the displacement of top boss, Roger Ailes.
Meanwhile, rumors are circulating that Kelly could be back in the air soon, a year after she was dumped from her NBC without a 13-month contract in her three-year contract.
The savvy star fed speculation she is working on a new project with Rose McGowan on the weekend, sharing a selfie on Twitter with the high-profile Harvey Weinstein prosecutor.
