CNN Anchor Makes Racist Joke After Queen Is Nearly Shot

Chris Cuomo

Apparently the Queen of England was nearly shot by one of her guards after taking a stroll in the middle of the night.

The guard thought she was an intruder:

Late one night, he said he was patrolling inside the perimeter of the Palace walls when he spotted a figure in the darkness.

Thinking that he had caught a potentially dangerous intruder, sneaking into the Royal residence at 3am, he shouted: “Who’s that?”

But to his surprise, it was actually the Queen.

“Bloody hell, Your Majesty, I nearly shot you,” he is reported to have said, on impulse.

CNN’s Chris Cuomo thought this was hilarious. So he decided to make a joke about the queen walking in the middle of the night, wearing a hoodie, and saying “sup, sup.”

It’s reminiscent of the coverage and hoodie drama surrounding the Trayvon Martin killing.

Here’s the clip:

    If that’s racist then I’m, a monkey’s uncle! The word racist is like ketchup. It can be put on anything.

    • james tower

      And it is put on everything. That does not seem racist to me, even coming from a liberal twit like Cuomo. I guess they have to entertain themselves while they are busy making up the next news story!
