While calls for New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo to resign over allegations of sexual harassment continue, his brother, CNN’s Chris Cuomo is now also under fire.
During a conversation with fellow CNN host Don Lemon, Cuomo jokingly said to him “you know I’m Black on the inside.”
In turn, social media users are tweeting mixed responses.

Twitter users react.
Chris Cuomo was obviously joking and I think it is wonderful that he knew all the words to the song.

Give me @RachelDolezal pretending to be Black on the outside and passionate about causes affecting the Black community than @ChrisCuomo pretending to be Black on the inside and don’t give a damn about Black causes. Liberal privilege! @donlemon @NAACP @CNN pic.twitter.com/hhRWKzC2zo

Difficult to understand what it’s like to be black unless you are black.
Difficult to accept wage increase unless you make minimum wage.
Difficult to understand Public Assistance unless you are poor
STOP RACISM: STOP JUDGING

@ChrisCuomo just said he was black on the inside. This spoilt, entitled guy raised in money and privilege, who is only on tv because of his surname.😡
