Star Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly said she has “no doubts” that her former boss is guilty of sexual misconduct and that it should prevent him from ever working in the news business again.

In an interview with USA Today published Tuesday, Kelly was asked whether ousted Fox News CEO Roger Ailes, 76, deserved a “second chance” in the industry.

“Absolutely not,” she said. “I have no doubts now about who he is or what he did. I don’t think he’d have spent a lifetime doing it and suddenly turn over a new leaf.”

The paper said that Kelly was also “disturbed” that Ailes had worked in some type of advisory role to Republican Donald Trump’s presidential campaign.

Over the summer, Ailes was accused of sexual harassment by former Fox anchor Gretchen Carlson.

Ailes denied the charges but after an internal investigation, he stepped down as CEO and Fox’s parent company made a rare public apology to Carlson.

In a new memoir, Kelly said Ailes, in 2005, remarked to her that she must own “sexy bras.” She also says he tried to kiss her on the mouth.

Kelly’s profile skyrocketed throughout the election due to a long-lasting public feud with Trump.
