Some Don't Like Megyn Kelly's New Interview — Including A Newtown Mom

After two weeks on air, NBC's newest star, Megyn Kelly, is scheduled to air a sit-down interview with Infowars host and well-known conspiracy theorist Alex Jones.

But immediately after announcing the interview, Kelly and NBC got a lot of backlash for giving Jones a large mainstream platform to voice his opinion.

"Sandy Hook?" Kelly asks.

"Well, Sandy Hook is complex because I've had debates where devil's advocates said the whole story is true, and I've had debates where I've said none of it is true," Jones said.

Some of Jones' greatest hits include calling Sandy Hook a hoax, claiming the Pulse nightclub shooting was a "false flag" and accusing the Obama administration of "murdering" Antonin Scalia.

"The question is, was Antonin Scalia murdered?" Alex Jones said on Facebook.

One mother who lost a child in the Sandy Hook shooting sent out several tweets in response to the interview — one with a picture of her daughter and said, "Stare at this & tell me it's worth it."

In response to the backlash from Jones' upcoming interview, Kelly tweeted, "Many don't know him; our job is 2 shine a light." 

NBC has yet to publicly comment on the upcoming broadcast.
