*The Republican Party has responded to an incident Tuesday in which two attendees at the GOP’s Tampa convention threw nuts at a female African-American CNN camera operator and said, “This is how we feed animals.”
The RNC released a statement today which reads: “Two attendees tonight exhibited deplorable behavior. Their conduct was inexcusable and unacceptable. This kind of behavior will not be tolerated.”
As previously reported, the incident was witnessed by several people. It was first tweeted by David Shuster and confirmed by Talking Points Memo (TPM).
RNC security and police removed the two people from the Tampa Bay Times Forum. No word yet on their identities.
CNN later acknowledged the incident “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.”
