It’s infuriating that disgusting incidents like these still occur.
Two attendees were removed from the Republican National Convention on Tuesday night after throwing nuts at an African-American camera operator for cable network CNN and taunting, “This is how we feed animals.”
CNN confirmed the incident in a statement Wednesday morning. […]
It is not yet clear what role the individuals who were removed played at the convention, although organizers did confirm their ejection in a statement.
“Two attendees tonight exhibited deplorable behavior,” said convention spokesman Kyle Downey. “Their conduct was inexcusable and unacceptable. This kind of behavior will not be tolerated.”
Convention organizers hoped to use a more diverse lineup of speakers last night to help send a more inclusive signal to the public.
It would appear some in the party still have a very long way to go.
