‘White Woman Tears’ Activated: Oklahoma TV Anchor Issues Emotional Apology After Comparing Black Colleague to Gorilla — Atlanta Black Star

A white Oklahoma City news anchor cued the waterworks during an emotional apology to her Black colleague whom she likened to a gorilla during a live broadcast last week.

KOCO-TV morning anchor Alex Housden wrapped up a segment on a curious gorilla at the Oklahoma City Zoo last Thursday by comparing the primate to her co-anchor Jason Hackett. https://atlantablackstar.com/2019/08/28/white-woman-tears-activated-oklahoma-tv-anchor-issues-emotional-apology-after-comparing-black-colleague-to-gorilla/

  1. It’s certainly the world we live in. White Women Tears might as well be a “get out of jail free” card when it comes to stupid stuff like this. I did like that one commenter who pointed out what would happen if the situation was reversed if he said she looked like an unseasoned chicken. That was on point.
