An attendee at the Republican National Convention in Tampa on Tuesday threw nuts at a black camerawoman working for CNN while screaming “This is how we feed animals!” before being removed from the convention floor.
CNN officials declined to confirm specific details of the incident to TPM but generally confirmed the account of what happened which was posted on Twitter by former MSNBC and Current anchor David Shuster.
“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.”
It is not clear whether the alleged culprit was a delegate or attending the convention in some other capacity.
Stay KKKlassy GOP!
