Megyn Kelly is making a joke about her “busy” schedule, simply days after reaching an exit settlement with NBC.

It was revealed on Jan. 11 that, about three months after she made controversial feedback about blackface on Megyn Kelly Today, the host had finalized her exit from the community.

“The parties have resolved their differences, and Megyn Kelly is no longer an employee of NBC,” the community mentioned in an announcement.  

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Kelly might be paid the remaining $69 million, as beforehand promised in her three-year contract, and she is going to now not be held to a non-compete clause. That means Kelly is ready to begin work elsewhere instantly. 

Before that occurs, Kelly is making a visit to jury responsibility.

Kelly took to Twitter on Thursday to make a joke about her employment standing earlier than beginning her day at jury responsibility.

“About to begin jury duty this morning,” she instructed her followers. “Slightly concerned about the effectiveness of the ‘I’m far too busy’ excuse this time.”

Following Kelly’s on-air feedback, her present was cancelled.

Megyn Kelly Today will not be returning,” an NBC News spokesperson confirmed in an announcement to E! News in October. “Next week, the 9 a.m. hour might be hosted by different Today co-anchors.”

Earlier this month, Dylan Dreyer revealed she might be co-hosting the new third hour of Today each weekday morning at 9 a.m. with Al RokerSheinelle Jones and Craig Melvin.
