*CNN anchor Erin Burnett is being roasted on black Twitter after she referred to members of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority Inc. as “gang members.”
In the midst of the Baltimore uprising, the Bloods and Crips announced they had put aside their differences for the greater good and joined efforts to heal the community. They were due to attend a town hall meeting, where CNN had set up shop.
As their camera panned the audience before the meeting began, three rows of Zeta Phi Beta sorority members were shown. Apparently, Burnett saw the sorority’s blue and white colors ad assumed they were Crips.
“You’ve got the gang members right there,” she said.
