Chris Cuomo Under Fire For ‘Black On The Inside’ Remarks

Videos by OutKick

CNN anchor Chris Cuomo was merely trying to be hip, but instead he walked away from his on-air exchange with Don Lemon looking silly.

And now Cuomo is facing a backlash. His crime? Telling Lemon, “I’m black on the inside.”

Cuomo’s comment came after Lemon asked Cuomo how he knew the words to the 1970s sitcom Good Times, which featured primarily black actors.

Cuomo later tried to clarify himself for the forever-judgmental crowd on Twitter.

“There is no understanding what it is to live as a black person in America if you are white but it is so important to listen,” he wrote. “The majority must change racism.”

CNN has of course remained silent on the matter, perhaps given Cuomo’s liberal ties.

Cuomo is the younger brother of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, and it’s safe to say Chris is still in better shape than Andrew when it comes to the jury of public opinion.

Five women, including several former aides, have recently accused Andrew Cuomo of sexual misconduct. The Cuomo administration also allegedly significantly altered a report on long-term nursing home deaths from COVID-19.

  1. The Cuomo Brothers are about to learn that they are entirely expendable, post-Biden. I can’t wait for the CNN Me Too Movement to hit this guy in the nose. They both deserve every minute of pain delivered.

  2. His old man was a reprehensible person. Ran New York like a gangster… kinda like this a-hole’s brother. The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. I hope both of these jerks get steamrolled into obscurity where they belong. Two vapid, self-congratulatory egomaniacs with no regard for others.

  3. Look, Freido is a total douche. He’s an arrogant, liberal “tough guy” there is no question about that. But he isn’t a racist. He was joking around with his douche bag buddy Don and there was nothing racist about what he said. I’m tired of everyone in this country turning everything into racism. DBAP

    • It’s just the irony. When everything is racist nothing is racist. Then again, Cuomo is white and we are being told all whites are racist and then he gives the leftists a gift like this. It’s gives me a headache.

  4. He thinks he’s a tough guy. Like Penn, DeNiro, Baldwin they all come on like they’re badass but in reality they’re pussies. Look who they pick on…photographers, beat writers and the like. Punks, all of them.
