A CNN panel discussing Michael Brown devolved after documentarian Jackson Pollock argued with former NYPD detective Harry Houck, Raw Story reports.
The panel was in response to new surveillance footage of Brown showing him exchanging weed for the boxes of cigarillos he was posthumously accused of stealing.
Pollock argued that Brown didn’t rob the store. In Pollock’s version of the events, Brown forcibly took what had already been traded to him the night before.
Houck got angry: “All you talk about on your Twitter site is how Michael Brown is innocent and the police officer who killed Tamir Rice was a murderer! That’s what you’re all about. You have no evidence of anything, and that robbery still occurred.”
Pollock said Houck should, “continue your white supremacy on the air.”
“So I’m a white supremacist now!” Houck said.
Host Chris Cuomo told Pollock “you don’t have to be a white supremacist to ask questions.”
