Alisyn Camerota Accused of Racism for Assuming Indian-American Spelling Bee Champ Could Speak Sanskrit

HeatStreet: A CNN host is in hot water for wrongly assuming the newly crowned Spelling Bee champion, Ananya Vinay, could speak Sanskrit in a blunder many have labelled “racist.”

Vinay, 12,  a sixth-grader from Fresno, California is of Indian descent but grew up between Los Angeles and San Francisco.

She was invited on CNN’s ‘New Day’ show over the weekend to talk about her recent victory at the Scripps National Spelling Bee.

But things took an awkward turn towards the end of the interview when Alisyn Camerota and Chris Cuomo challenged her to spell “covfefe” — President Trump’s late night Twitter typo that sent the internet into a frenzy last week.

Initially confused by the request, Vinay nonetheless kept her cool and quizzed the hosts about the origin of the word, as she was trained to do in preparation for the spelling competition.  MORE

  1. In the last 5 years, for all news outlets (Canadian, American, European), I assume that they are all a bunch of “sluts and Jiggers (male slut)” and that garbage comes from their mouths. I MIGHT believe them if they are standing in front of a fire and they say they are standing in front of a fire, but as soon as they start pontificating, I tune them out.

  2. Racism? Guilty as charged. There is no such thing as non-indictment in charges of racism. Any protests or arguments that the accused is not racist, are obviously just more racism and maybe even represent 2X racism. Off with her to the reeducation camp for 80 years or life. Was that Cuomo on the set with her? Obviously guilty by association, off with his head. OK who is the next white person who said the wrong word or otherwise offended a person of color?

  3. Camerota’s knees look like two bulldogs who have been eating mayonnaise out of a jar. They are a crime against humanity. They look like Willy Nelson’s face. It’s not hard to wonder how they became so worn out and ugly, though.

  4. Are you aware of some type of “Apple Security” virus stuff that might be plaguing your site?

    Both my iPhone and iPad have been affected….it might be my stuff….I’m checking now…..I thought you might want to know.

  5. I knew an Indian guy, long ago, who thought it was racist that someone mentioned that he spoke English very well. I said that he would probably be surprised if I spoke perfect Hindi – at which he just stared.

    Guy had a PhD in Physics, but STILL was a victim!
    Sheesh!

    Met another Indian dude who said he got his MS from Rolla (he was an Engineering Doctoral Student) so I (paraphrasing Steve Landesberg) said “We have a University called that, too.” To which he burst out laughing – not a victimized bone in his body.

    People are funny.

    izlamo delenda est …

  6. Did you learn to spell so well practicing on the rivers edge while beating your clothing against rocks and soaking them in one of your polluted rivers little girl? asked the condescending Alisyn Camerota.

  7. The worse part of the exchange was that Camerota was deliberately messing with the young champion. It was a cynical and cruel attempt to force Vinay into joining them in President Trump bashing.

  8. Camerota is a twit with a twat. Wasn’t a fan of hers while she was at Fox, didn’t miss her leaving. She’s flipped 180 degrees, so she belongs at the Communist News Network.

  9. Notice her IQ dropped about fifty points when the scrunt left
    Faux News, and she turned into a leftist libtard.
