Netizens Rip Chris Cuomo for Saying He’s ‘Black on the Inside’

Brother of New York Governor Andrew Cuomo – who is now facing accusations of sexual harassment from several women – has been accused of cultural appropriation, with some even calling his comments openly “offensive.”

CNN’s anchor Chris Cuomo has come under fire on social media for comparing himself to black Americans.

“You know I am black on the inside,” Cuomo told his colleague Don Lemon, who asked if he knew the words to “Good Times”, a 1970’s TV series that features the life of a black family from Chicago.

While Lemon refrained from commenting, Cuomo’s words quickly went viral on Twitter.
