Someone who likely resembles a spoiled tub of mayonnaise scraped off dumpster-dwelling, half-eaten, overpriced paninis got their ass handed to them on television Tuesday night. CBS46 news anchor Sharon Reed shredded mayo mascot Kathy Rae for calling her the n-word in an email about the station's recent Atlanta mayoral election coverage, a message she awesomely read word-for-word on the air.
First, here's the dumbass email this dumbass sent:
You need to be fired for the race baiting comment you made tonight. it’s o.k for blacks to discuss certain subjects but not whites. really??? you are what I call a N***r not a black person. you are a racist N***r. you are what’s wrong with the world [sic].
As Reed noted in her segment Tuesday night, the reason you're probably counting the asterisk censors right now and growing confused is because Kathy Rae repeatedly misspelled the n-word in her dumbass email. According to Reed, she repeatedly wrote "Niger," which is a country in Western Africa.
"I would say to Kathy a couple of things," Reed said. "Number one, you mischaracterize what I said. I didn't say that white people couldn't talk about race. Quite the contrary. We think that race is an authentic discussion to have. It's one we're having tonight because it's one many of you are talking about at home and it's one that's clearly entered the Atlanta mayor's race. And that's why behind the scenes, my colleagues and I, white and black, we decided, hey, let's go for it, right? Because we do try to keep it real here and I think we do a very good job of it."
Reed then explained how important it is not to mischaracterize someone's viewpoint when making an argument. "So I won't mischaracterize your view either, Kathy Rae," Reed said. "I get it. On December 5th, 2017, you think it's OK to call this journalist a n****r. I don't. I could clap back and say a few things to you but instead I'll let your words, Kathy Rae, speak for themselves. And that'll be the last word."
Anyway, here's a live photo of Kathy Rae watching this segment:
