VIDEO: CNN Host Who Made ‘Racist’ Comment Against 12-Year-Old Spelling Bee Winner Has Got The World Talking!

The host of a CNN show, Alisyn Camerota has been alleged of making a ‘racist’ comment when speaking to 12-year-old Ananya Vinay, winner of the Scripps Spelling Bee contest.

Ananya, who is of Indian origin but was born and raised in Fresno, California, was recently named champion of the 2017 spelling bee competition, among approximately 11 million others who had entered the competition.

The host, Alisyn passed the ‘racist’ comment after Chris Cuomo, a second host, asked Ananya to spell the word ‘covfefe’, which Ananya couldn’t spell correctly. Calling it a “nonsense word”, Alisyn said that Ananya probably spelt it incorrectly on air because “its root is not in Sanskrit, which is what you’re probably used to using.
