The incident which occurred inside the Tampa Bay Times Forum was legitimately taken to be racist and sexist against the camera operator.
The two people who did the act were thrown out of the Republican National Convention, according to CNN. It was reported that CNN, along with convention officials, took care of the incident and will not have any further comments on the incident.
Several persons who witnessed the incident quickly informed the convention’s security personnel and the offenders were taken from the venue immediately.
The first viral notification of the unfortunate incident came on Twitter from talk radio host David Shuster who messaged:
GOP attendee ejected for throwing nuts at African-American CNN camera woman + saying “This is how we feed animals.”
Late Tuesday evening, the convention organizer’s confirmation came via a statement which read:
Two attendees tonight exhibited deplorable behavior. Their conduct was inexcusable and unacceptable. This kind of behavior will not be tolerated.
Obviously, such an occurrence is not what any political gathering would want – especially just months before an election.
The Republican National Convention is being held this week, through Thursday, in Tampa, Florida where Mitt Romney will accept the Republican Party’s nomination as the GOP’s presidential candidate of 2012.
The primary source of the incident is ABC.
