Megyn Kelly announced on Twitter early Thursday morning that she’s just landed an exclusive interview with Russian President Vladimir Putin to be aired on Sunday.
Twitter exploded instantly with criticisms that the former Fox Host is giving Putin an American platform.
Here’s the original tweet:

…and the questions will be like, "Do you like us?" "Did you hack us?" K, thanks.

And this is exactly why I refuse to watch your show. Why give him a platform?
— Beth Bryson (@maddezmom) June 1, 2017
Because Putin needs more love and publicity in the US.

Why? So he can lie to your face?

Giving this dictator a format to explain himself while our country is investigating him is irresponsible. Starting off with a bang, Kelly
