While his big brother is mired in a myriad of salacious scandals, CNN’s Chris Cuomo is also making a splash after making a racially-provocative statement on-air this week.
Chris Cuomo, who has largely silent on the issues surrounding New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s inappropriate behavior, got into hot water this week by making an absurd claim about his own racial makeup.
The 50-year-old brother of embattled New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo was quickly roasted after a clip was shared Friday showing him hand over to CNN colleague Don Lemon by singing the theme to 1970s’ TV show “Good Times.”
Laughing awkwardly with his eyes lowered, Lemon asked his fellow host how he knew the words to the series about a Black family living in a public housing project in Chicago.
“You know I’m Black on the inside,” Cuomo responded.
While Lemon appeared to skip the comment, it was quickly picked up on the Twitterverse.
Social media users were vicious.
Weird how Don Lemon, who sees racism everywhere if a Republican is involved, gives his buddy a total pass on this. https://t.co/6D2HjYnCm3

Perhaps it’s time for the entire Cuomo family to plan a vacation. Maybe get out of the public eye for a while?
