CNN's Chris Cuomo Gets Shredded After Telling Don Lemon 'I'm Black on the Inside'
Host torched on Twitter after racist comment
CNN's Chris Cuomo, brother of his scandal-ridden brother, Gov. Andrew Cuomo, was torched after joking he is “black on the inside.”
The news host was roasted after a clip was shared Friday showing him singing the theme to 1970s TV show “Good Times" as he handed over to his colleague Don Lemon.
Lemon asked Cuomo if he knew the words to the series about a black family living in a public housing project in Chicago.
Cuomo responded, “You know I’m black on the inside."
Though Lemon seemed to skip the comment, Twitter didn't let Cuomo walk away unscathed.
Another ripped Cuomo as a “spoilt, entitled guy raised in money and privilege, who is only on tv because of his surname.”
Rev. Mary Dande said she “had to turn off the television because I’m not here for that nonsense.”
“CNN needs to have some sensitivity training with their on-air personalities,” she tweeted.
Chris Cuomo just said to Don Lemon OUT LOUD on Wolf Blitzer’s CNN, “You know I’m Black on the inside,” and we had to turn off the television because I’m not here for that nonsense. @CNN needs to have some sensitivity training with their on-air personalities.— RevMaryDande🏳️🌈 (@SisterMaryDande) March 6, 2021
Last month, Cuomo faced instant backlash on Twitter after he called for a Texas mayor to resign.
Cuomo was quickly reminded about his "corrupt" brother, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, who is currently under official criminal investigation for covering-up nursing home deaths in his state.
Even the far-left media has moved away from covering up for Governor Cuomo, with some even pointing out his directives that led to thousands of deaths last year.
CNN has banned Chris Cuomo from interviewing his brother, who is currently facing a massive criminal investigation into the alleged cover-up of nursing home deaths in New York.
CNN said the following in a statement:
“The early months of the pandemic crisis were an extraordinary time."
"We felt that Chris speaking with his brother about the challenges of what millions of American families were struggling with was of significant human interest."
