Fox News is the epitome of trash news and they never fail to remind us of their foolishness. On Thursday, they thought Robin Roberts and Gayle King were the same person. Well, Ms. King had a classy clap back.
While appearing on Stephen Colbert’s “Late Show” she was asked about the mix up from the trifling Jesse Watters. Dana Parino corrected him, which made King email her.
“It was a great compliment, but thank you for letting him know that we’re two different people,” Oprah’s BFF explained she wrote in the email. She also said she asked Parino to remind the folks at Fox News “that all Black people do not look alike.” Watch below:
On Thursday, while talking about King’s polished and professional interview with R. Kelly, — something Fox knows nothing about — Watters said, “Hats off to Gayle King, for totally redeeming herself after the [Jussie] Smollett fiasco.”
Perino awkwardly replied, “That was not Gayle King. Robin Roberts did the Smollett interview.”
Trying to clean it up, Watters said, “I knew that. Sorry for Robin Roberts out there.”
Watch the mess unfold below:
Watters apologized later in the show with a note on a whiteboard, writing, “I’m sorry Gayle + Robin.”
In case you missed it, Kelly got extremely emotional when interviewed by King. The disgraced singer went ballistic and screamed, “Forget the blogs, forget how you feel about me. Hate me if you want to, love me if you want. But just use your common sense. How stupid would it be for me, with my crazy past and what I’ve been through. … Quit playing! I didn’t do this stuff! This is not me! I’m fighting for my f*cking life!”
Fox News mixing up Black people is normal for the conservative network. Back when the Queen of Soul died on August 16, 2018, every network on the planet was covering her death, but Fox News posted a photo of Patti LaBelle instead. See the photo below with Patti LaBelle in the corner:
Fox did issue a soulless apology.
“We sincerely apologize to Aretha Franklin’s family and friends,” a statement said. “Our intention was to honor the icon using a secondary image of her performing with Patti LaBelle in the full screen graphic, but the image of Ms. Franklin was obscured in that process, which we deeply regret.”
Fox News is trash.
