Two RNC Attendees Ejected After Throwing Nuts at Black CNN Camera Operator, Saying “That’s How We Feed Animals”

CNN reports that two people were removed from the Republican National Convention yesterday for throwing nuts at a black  CNN camerawoman, saying “This is how we feed animals.” CNN won’t disclose the name of the camerawoman. When Mitt Romney hangs around birthers like Maricopa County sheriff Joe Arpaio and Donald Trump, as well as crack his own birther joke, then you embolden the worst elements in the Republican Party.

The convention released a statement saying, “Two attendees tonight exhibited deplorable behavior. Their conduct was inexcusable and unacceptable. This kind of behavior will not be tolerated.”

CNN also acknowledged the incident, saying, “CNN can confirm there was an incident directed at an employee inside the Tampa Bay Times Forum earlier this afternoon. CNN worked with convention officials to address this matter and will have no further comment.” Source: CNN
