MSNBC's Touré, Ronan Farrow Under Fire for Holocaust Remarks
Two MSNBC anchors, Ronan Farrow and Touré Neblett, are in hot water over weekend remarks made about the Holocaust. The Twitter account of Touré, co-anchor of MSNBC's "The Cycle," has been uncharacteristically quiet since Friday when Touré appeared to suggest that the "power of whiteness" was responsible for a Jewish family surviving a concentration camp and/or "making it work" afterwards.
Touré's tweet prompted Efraim Zuroff, Israel office director of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, to accuse Touré of "reverse-racism" and "disgusting anti-Semitism."
The tweet caused an uproar all throughout the long holiday weekend, which makes Ronan Farrow's Twitter-crack comparing his dating life to Steven Spielberg's Oscar-winning Holocaust film "Schindler's List" all the more perplexing:
Thus far, MSNBC, Touré, and Farrow have said nothing in response to the controversies.
