CNN’s Chris Cuomo wasn’t buying a report that a Massachusetts Senate candidate was assaulted by a supporter of Sen. Elizabeth Warren.
Shiva Ayyadurai was see on video being shoved by a man waiting to see Warren at a town hall in Great Barrington, Massachusetts on Sunday.
While the video showed the white liberal shoving Indian-born Ayyadurai’s megaphone into his face, the caption on a story that was tweeted alleged the man “punched” the candidate.

Cuomo questioned the allegation, taking issue with the wording in the tweet.
Is the man pushing the megaphone into his face the punch in the face or is there something else we don’t see? https://t.co/CTburX96VG

Ayyadurai blasted Cuomo for insinuating the assault was not what was being reported and dared the CNN host to have him on the air, even providing his contact number.
Chris – if you want to know what happened why don’t you ask me, instead of speculating? I was the one who was bleeding after he smashed the megaphone into my face. I’ll come on and we can have a real discussion about RACISM in America. My cell is 617-500-1988. Call me. https://t.co/4WF67SfhVi

The man in the video, wearing a “LIBERALS” T-shirt, was arrested after the incident and charged with disorderly conduct and assault and battery.
“This is how these white privileged white supremacists react,” Ayyadurai said in the video following the attack. “What you just witnessed is how you white supremacists react when you don’t want to hear the truth from a dark-skinned Indian guy. The same guy you claim you want to help. Wake up. Wake the f*** up. You guys are f****** racists.”
Twitter users called out Cuomo for his biased reaction and blatant double standard.
Selective Biased Fake Reporting why @CNN continues to loose viewers

He doesn’t care about what happened. If you were a Democrat, then he would have had you on five seconds after the video came out.

Pretty sure if it was a white Trump Supporter who push a megaphone into the face of a “POC” – woke, who was running against Trump, @ChrisCuomo wouldn’t be asking such things anyway

Apparently Cuomo’s bosses over at CNN agreed with him since, according to Breitbart News, “CNN has not given the assault any coverage, and the news org has not mentioned Ayyadurai on its site since August 2017.”
