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.
