During an appearance on The Kelly File, the actor spoke out about the recent police shootings of black men Alton Sterling and Philando Castile – and found himself in an intense debate with the Fox News host.

“It is my belief that no matter what happens, no matter what we see, the cops are given a presumption of innocence,” Hughley, 53, said.

“If that same tape showed a suspect doing something, that would be all the prosecution would need. They would say, ‘the evidence is all right here.’ But a cop gets a presumption of innocence.”

The conversation intensified when Kelly, 45, mentioned the 2014 case of Michael Brown, an unarmed teen who was fatally shot by a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri.

Kelly said that although the Department of Justice found the Ferguson Police Department to be rife with instances of racism, that does not make the cop involved racist.

“The only place racism doesn’t exist is Fox News and the police department,” Hughley sharply quipped. Kelly replied: “That’s insulting. You just insulted millions of people watching this channel.”

“You know what? I’m insulted by the things I hear on this network so we’re even,” Hughley said. “I could care less about insulting people who insult me on a daily basis.”
