CNN host #ChrisCuomo is in hot water — and not for refusing to cover his brother, New York Governor #AndrewCuomo, who is under fire for sexual misconduct allegations. Instead, it’s for making a racially insensitive comment to colleague #DonLemon on-air Friday night.
A video clip of the exchange was widely shared on social media. It shows Cuomo hand over to Lemon while singing the theme to the 1970s TV show “Good Times.”
Lemon, laughing awkwardly, asks Cuomo how he knows the words to the theme song of a series about a Black family living in a public housing project in Chicago.
To which Cuomo responds, “You know I’m Black on the inside.”
Lemon gave his fellow host a pass on the insensitive comment, even singing along with Cuomo. #video
