What happened to Greg Kelly on Newsmax?

On June 14, 2021, it was announced that Newsmax host Kelly would be under network review after posting tweets about race, the military and "morale."

Kelly had allegedly posted a series of now-deleted tweets that sparked backlash.

One of his tweets allegedly read: "So that's the USS America aircraft carrier that I'm 'fixin' to land on. Just knowing that President Clinton, who was in office at the time, was a Caucasian male made it 'all worthwhile' — ask any white male officer who served under him. So appreciative of his Race were we."

Another one of the alleged tweets in question said that while he was in the military, having a white secretary of defense made a "big difference" when it came to "morale." 

After deleting the initial tweets, Kelly's follow-up tweet reportedly read: "Now the TRUTH: being a MARINE had nothing to do with RACE. It didn’t matter. It wasn’t “a thing”—the EXPERIENCE brought us together, no matter what we were. The late Mayor David Dinkens, a WWII Marine, and hence, my brother. Below in 1991, and officiating my wedding in 2017."

Newsmax released a statement following the tweets saying that they understand his tweets were an attempt to "indicate his opposition to racism," but added, "We at Newsmax never countenance the posting of racist views or views that appeal to racists. We are currently reviewing the matter."

At this time, it is unclear what the results of Newsmax's investigation were.

Who is Greg Kelly's wife?

A Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology graduate, Grey has a bachelor's degree in fine arts as well as a bachelor's of science degree in neuroscience from Columbia.

According to an article published in The New York Times after their wedding, Grey started her career off as an artist in Melbourne before switching to advertising and "became the architect of numerous campaigns for various companies, including Pfizer, Hong Kong Bank and Georgia-Pacific."

Grey is also a writer who has contributed to the Daily Beast and Business Insider over the years.
