Tuesday night in Tampa, an attendee at the Republican National Convention was escorted out of the building for allegedly harassing an African American woman.
Talking Points Memo reported that a man threw nuts at a black CNN camerawoman while saying, “This is how we feed animals.”
“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,” the network said in a statement.
The incident was first reported by Current TV host David Shuster.
