@alroker: @megynkelly is a terrible person to even suggest that it is Ok for a white person to go as a black character for Halloween.— BigLargeTime (@BigLargeTime) October 31, 2018
Also @alroker: Goes as Doc brown, a white character from a movie for halloween.#Hypocrites #Whiteface
So didn't Megan Kelly just get fired for saying black face and white face were okay if you were dressing up as a person? Crazy time… Susan— InCAdreamin' (@InCAdreamin) October 28, 2018
It feels a little dumb to even have to explain this, but apparently there are people out there who still don’t understand why blackface and their costumes are two totally different things. In both instances, whiteface wasn’t used by Black people. Whiteface isn’t even a thing. And yes, I’d like to say that Black people are smarter and more creative to even employ such a tactic. Roker even issued a statement about his costume and figuratively dropped his mic: “I’m going to say this one last time, but the folks who get it, understand and the ones who DON’T, won’t,” he tweeted. “I can be Doc Brown, and I wear the outfit and wig and not change my skin color if you’re white, you can be President Obama if you want. Just don’t color your skin!” Something tells me that some people will still need an explainer.

So it's ok for Gabrielle Union to dress as Gwen Stefani a white girl? But it's not ok for Meghan Kelly to dress as Diana Ross? Can I just say double standard and pure racism towards Meghan Kelly?
