Fox News Host Confuses Gayle King and Robin Roberts, Laughs It Off

Robin Roberts faced criticism after her interview with Jussie Smollett on February 14 about the alleged hate crime committed against him in Chicago.

Watters' Fox News associate, Dana Perino stepped in to correct him, saying: "That was not Gayle King".

More portions of Kelly's emotional interview with King are scheduled to air as part of an hourlong special that begins at 7 p.m. Friday on CBS.

Watters quickly apologized after being corrected on the air, and then later at the end of the show held up a small dry erase white board that read, "I'm sorry Gayle + Robin".

While appearing on Stephen Colbert's "Late Show" she was asked about the mix up from the trifling Jesse Watters.

"Can you explain why you get out of court and the first thing you do is go to McDonald's?" On Thursday, they thought Robin Roberts and Gayle King were the same person.

Perino: Robin Roberts did the Smollett interview.

"I couldn't believe it", King told Colbert, laughing. "There was times where I was very hungry", he said.

"Yes", King said with a laugh.

But as far as King is concerned, she's being showered with nothing but praise for keeping cool while R. Kelly commenced to act a complete fool, screaming and crying during her "CBS This Morning" interview with about his alleged sexual abuse, which he vehemently denied.

"So many people started sending this to me, because I normally don't watch Fox News unless I'm just curious to see what's going on, what other people are thinking", she continued.

Hi, just wanted to thank you for letting your colleague know that Robin Roberts and I, it was a great compliment, but thank you for letting him know that we're two different people.

King said she didn't expect Kelly to confess his crimes, "but I did think that, on some level, he would have a moment of reflection, he would have contrition". "'And could you let the rest of your colleagues know that all black people do not look alike'". Could you please just share that?' " she said. 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".
