Things took an awkward turn for former New York senator Hillary Clinton and New York Mayor Bill de Blasio this weekend after the two made what some are calling a "racist" joke.
Appearing at New York's annual Inner Circle Production, which this year featured a parody of the Broadway musical Hamilton called "Shamilton," Clinton thanked de Blasio for endorsing her.
She added, "Took you long enough."
"Sorry, Hillary, I was running on CP Time," de Blasio responded.
The audience gasped at the acronym, which comedian, writer, and producer Baratunde Thurston wrote is "an inside reference within the black community on the tendency of black folk to show up late for just about anything."
Hamilton's Leslie Odum, Jr., who plays Aaron Burr in the production, stood to Clinton's right and said, "I don't like jokes like that, Bill."
Clinton clarified, remarking that de Blasio only meant "cautious politician time."
De Blasio is married to writer Chirlane McCray, but some Twitter users said that his relationship with a black woman doesn't give him license to make a "racist" joke:

even worse than Hillary Clinton's racist joke was them being introduced as "Trill De Blasio and DJ HRC" imho— Cyber Bully 2.0 (@MarkusJ) April 11, 2016
Before Clinton joined him onstage, de Blasio rapped a quick verse, according to New York Daily News: “I make Bernie Sanders look like Trump/ I’m down with Sandinistas/ And The Donald’s a chump."
