CNN anchor Chris Cuomo slammed for tone-deaf gender pronoun joke at LGBTQ event

"Let's say you were on the campaign trail", asked Morgan Cox, of the pro-equality Human Rights Campaign, "and a supporter approaches you and says, 'Senator, I'm old fashioned and my faith teaches me that marriage is between one man and one woman.' What is your response?"

Earlier Thursday, Warren released a plan for aimed at protecting and securing LGBTQ+ rights and equality.

Warren began by saying that she was going to assume the person asking this question was male before explaining that she would tell the man in question, "Then just marry one woman".

By the time the segment ended, angry tweets were awaiting Cuomo in his Twitter feed. "I'm cool with that", Warren nonchalantly replied, shrugging her shoulders.

Emily Andras, a Canadian TV producer and writer tweeted, "God give me an ounce of the wisdom, empathy and comic timing of Elizabeth Warren".

"Thank you guys", Harris said to the crowd.

"WOW. Elizabeth Warren mocks religious people of faith about views on marriage", Tipping Point host Liz Wheeler tweeted. "That is the basis of the faith that I grew up in".

The legislation is supported by many other Democrats and was the subject of a similar announcement on LGBTQ2 rights by Pete Buttigieg, who also participated in the town hall.

"They are yellow, black and white".

She said she couldn't be sure what she thought as a kid, and acknowledged that different faiths see things differently. "Jesus loves all the children of the world", she sang.

"I am an ally of the LGBTQ community, and I am sorry because I am committed to helping us achieve equality".

Cuomo's joke immediately received backlash from gay rights activists and journalists on Twitter, including GLAAD, an organization that promotes LGBTQ acceptance.
