Megyn Kelly hosts The Kelly File on the Fox network. She also hosted the Republican debate earlier this summer. So why is a former University of Pittsburgh woman receiving hate mail intended for Megyn Kelly?
It's because her name is Megan Kelly. Note the difference in the spelling of the two first names.
Megan Kelly says she has received Megyn Kelly’s email in the past, but definitely not as much as she has received since the Republican debate.
Not all the emails she has received are hate mail. Some people have asked her to send them autographed pictures. Wouldn't it be funny if she sent them? Those expecting a photo of Megyn Kelly would definitely be confused.

Other people have cautioned her not to “sit there and attack Trump!”
Megan Kelly has taken it all in stride.
“Some of the people who are emailing me kind of aren’t understanding how the internet works," she says.

Megan Kelly finds many of the emails she receives quite amusing. She has taken to posting them on her Facebook page.
“It’s really weird,” she says. “It’s not consistent. But every time I get one, I’m like, ‘Yes!’”
Megyn Kelly has yet to comment on Megan Kelly receiving her emails. If she finds herself in the Pittsburgh area, she definitely owes Megan dinner. Perhaps she should leave a stack of autographed pictures with her, too?
