Mark Kelly Was Paid Over $25,000 to Tell Racist Jokes to Boy Scouts

Sep 10, 2020

Mark Kelly apologized earlier today for telling a racist joke comparing Hispanic people to monkeys. The joke was told at an event for the Boy Scouts in 2018, where Kelly was featured as a speaker. Kelly’s personal financial disclosure shows the Boy Scouts paid him $25,500 to spout racist jokes at their event:

It’s unbelievable Kelly took over $25,000 from the Boy Scouts and cheapened their event with his off-color remarks.

Will Kelly return the money he made embarrassing himself at the Boy Scouts event by donating his speaking fees to charity?
