Watch: Atlanta News Anchor Sharon Reed Claps Back at a Viewer Who Called Her the N-Word After the Mayoral Election [Video]


Atlanta news anchor Sharon Reed had time on Tuesday night to respond -- on-air -- to a racist viewer who called her the N-word.

As racist viewer Kathy Rae's words were displayed on the screen, Sharon read them aloud from the newsdesk.

“You need to be fired for the race-baiting comment you made tonight," wrote Kathy. "It’s o.k. for blacks to discuss certain subjects but not whites. really??? you are what I call a n---r not a black person. You are a racist n---r. you are what’s wrong with the world.”

Sharon then proceeded to get Kathy RIGHT together.

"I would say to Kathy, a couple of things. No. 1: You mischaracterized what I said. I didn’t say that white people couldn’t talk about race. Quite the contrary. We think that race is an authentic discussion to have." Sharon continued, "It’s one we’re having tonight because it’s one that many of you are talking about at home. And it’s one that has clearly entered the Atlanta mayor’s race. So I won’t mischaracterize your view either, Kathy Rae. I get it. On Dec. 5, 2017, you think it’s OK to call this journalist a n-----. I don’t. But I could clap back and say a few things to you. But instead, I’ll let your words, Kathy Rae, speak for themselves. And that'll be the last word.”

And there it is. Watch it all go down below.

P.S. Congrats to Keisha Lance Bottoms for winning the race and becoming Atlanta's new mayor.
