SiriusXM podcaster and former Fox News star Megyn Kelly stepped up to the plate, so to speak, during her show on Friday and took up a challenge of sorts from actress Charlize Theron, who played Kelly in the movie “Bombshell.”
Kelly was responding to Theron’s threat to “f**k anybody up” who challenges or questions drag queen performances for children.
During her Friday episode, Kelly asked, “Why doesn’t Charlize Theron come and f**k me up?”
“I’m 100 percent against her on this,” Kelly went on to say. “Yes, there are fun drag queen shows — I’ve been to them. When we lived in Chicago, I went to one, and it was super fun. It was all adults.”
“But there are drag queen shows out there right now that are deeply disturbing, and they are happening in front of young children,” she added, noting further that it could “include the grooming of young children.”
“Even she should be against this, trans kid or not,” Kelly said in reference to Theron’s adopted son, who now identifies as a transgender “girl.”

Theron recently appeared on the “Drag Isn’t Dangerous” fundraising telethon, where she told the drag community that she has their backs.
“We love you queens,” the actress said. “We’re in your corner, and we’ve got you, and I will fuck anybody up who’s trying to fuck with anything with you guys.”
Kelly, for months, has been speaking out in support of women’s sports advocates like former star University of Kentucky swimmer Riley Gaines as she pushes back against left-wing attempts to normalize biological men invading traditional women’s spaces.
Last month, for instance, Kelly shredded the “insane lunatics” who attacked Gaines during an appearance on a university campus, slamming their ambush as “sick and infuriating.”
She tweeted a video showing Gaines being assaulted by a group of radical transgender activists during her speech at San Francisco State University.
“These insane lunatics attacked [Riley Gaines] for speaking up about women’s rights,” Kelly wrote.
“(Riley tied w/Lia Thomas – a man pretending to be a woman — in the NCAA competition.)” she added. “This is SICK and INFURIATING. They must be fought. They must be defeated.”

She also included a tweet from the Independent Women’s Forum that said, “We strongly condemn the violence perpetrated against [iwf] spokeswoman [Riley_Gaines] on [SFSU] campus.”
“Riley was violently accosted, ambushed, and physically assaulted during a speech on sex discrimination women face in their own single-sex sports category,” the tweet noted further.
“If we don’t find our voices and start speaking up against this nonsense, we can kiss every woman’s space goodbye!” Kelly said emphatically during another show later in April. “We can kiss women’s rights goodbye.”
“We can kiss sororities goodbye,” she added. “We can take off our tops and our underwear and do our yoga in front of perverted men who just want to get off watching us til the cows come home. Stick your daughter in the sorority, let ‘em at her.”
“Find your voices, ladies — and the men who support us,” Kelly continued. “Otherwise, this is our future. I’m sorry. I’m done. I’m done. I don’t want to deal with this s*** at Tri Delta, Kappa Kappa Gamma, in the women’s locker room. You can be supportive of trans people and what they’re going through without surrendering to this madness!”
Kelly went on to provide details about allegations made by sorority members at the chapter against a trans-identifying female who is biologically male. She said she believes that the sorority girls have a case of sexual harassment against the male member after he exposed himself to them. The Kappa Kappa Gamma chapter was forced to admit the biological male per the university’s requirement.
“You endangered us, you pressured us, made us unable to reject this person who we could identify as a potential pervert. And then we were subjected to his lewd and lascivious behaviors.”
