Someone threw nuts at a black CNN camerawoman Tuesday evening on the floor of the Republican National Convention, according to media reports.
A tweet from Current TV host David Shuster alerted media, including TPM, to the incident. CNN has confirmed the incident but provided no further details.
The Republican National Convention was marred by a disturbing incident Tuesday night, as a black, female camera operator was apparently racially taunted on the convention floor.
Current TV host David Shuster tweeted late Tuesday night: “GOP attendee ejected for throwing nuts at African-American camera woman + saying ‘This is how we feed animals.’”
A CNN report on the incident cites “multiple witnesses” of the incident and said two attendees were removed.
