Police at the Republican National Convention on Tuesday removed two people who threw nuts at a black CNN camerawoman and said, “This is how we feed animals.”
“Two attendees tonight exhibited deplorable behavior,” the convention said in a statement. “Their conduct was inexcusable and unacceptable. This kind of behavior will not be tolerated.”
CNN said in a statement that it “worked with convention officials to address this matter” but said it would not comment further.
The incident was reported first on Tuesday by Current TV reporter David Shuster.
