Mess! RNC attendee allegedly Threw Nuts at a Black CNN Camerawoman and said ‘This Is How We Feed Animals’
You knew foolishness was just around the corner at RNC convention. According to several sources, a RNC attendee allegedly threw nuts at a black camerawoman working for CNN and said to her, “This is how we feed animals".
This fool was thrown out of the convention.
TPM has more of the info, kind of:
The CNN official declined to confirm specific details of the incident to TPM but generally confirmed an account posted on Twitter by former MSNBC and Current anchor David Shuster: “GOP attendee ejected for throwing nuts at African American CNN camera woman + saying ‘This is how we feed animals.’”That camerawoman should have threw that camera at that guy... I would've.
It is not clear whether the alleged culprit was a delegate or attending the convention in some other capacity.
In a written statement, CNN addressed the matter but divulged few details: “CNN can confirm there was an incident directed at an employee inside the Tampa Bay Times Forum earlier this afternoon. CNN worked with convention officials to address this matter and will have no further comment.”
