CNN anchor Chris Cuomo on Thursday ignited debate on Twitter about transgender bathrooms and raised some eyebrows when asked a pointed question about the issue.
Cuomo was asked, “What do you tell a 12-year-old girl who doesn’t want to see a penis in the locker room?”
“I wonder if she is the problem or her overprotective and intolerant dad? Teach tolerance,” the anchor replied.
Cuomo got a fierce response on Twitter.
Cuomo called the response “a lie” and “wasting time.”
He later tweeted that “the context is clear to me.”
Finally, Cuomo called the response a “warped mentality.”
