Laura Loomer confronts Chris Cuomo over CNN meme blackmail
Laura Loomer of TheRebel.media faced off against CNN’s Chris Cuomo about his network’s bullying of the creator of a funny viral image showing Donald Trump “wrestling” with the channel.
On July 4, 2017, CNN was accused of attempting to extort a Reddit user who allegedly created the now infamous “Trump vs. CNN” wrestling GIF, one that had been retweeted by the president himself.
CNN’s “New Day” host Chris Cuomo asked his Twitter followers if CNN should reveal the identity of (that is, “dox”) this anti-CNN meme creator.
The backlash was swift (INCLUDING PolitOpinion.com and TheConservativeTreeHouse.com MEME CONTEST) :
Following criticism online, which caused the hashtag #CNNBlackmail to trend, Cuomo deleted the tweet.
Today, Rebel reporter Laura Loomer caught up with Cuomo at CNN’s offices in New York and asked him why he deleted the tweet that encouraged the extortion of a private citizen.
CNN security told Laura to stop filming and asked her to leave the sidewalk (which is public property.)
