"Oh my gosh," he replied. "That was her very first show. It struck a little chord, but I roll with the punches."
If you've forgotten, Kelly could not help but make some incredibly awkward statements that were seemingly intended as jokes during the segment from over a year ago. She asked a super fan, who she pulled onstage to meet the cast, "Is it true that you became a lawyer — and you became gay — because of Will?"
After the fan, Russel Turner, tried to shrug off the bizarre comment, Kelly ushered him from the stage declaring she thought "the gay thing is going to work out great" for him.
Since then, the conservative anchor's NBC morning show, "Megyn Kelly Today," was cancelled in the wake of Kelly's controversial comments about blackface last month.
Also, while on "WWHL" a caller then asked Hayes to weigh in on a much lighter subject. The fan asked Hayes, who has reprised his role as Jack in the "Will & Grace" revival, if the actor stole anything from the original set.
"[I had to bring] my spirit," Hayes said. "I'm kidding...the very last episode of 2006 when it ended the first time, we all got to pick something from the set and I picked a little framed photo off the wall that's kind of back towards Will's bedroom. You have to be a superfan to know what it was."
