A racist sign waived at a rally in support of President Donald Trump left Fox News anchors shocked during the live telecast.
Fox News anchor Eric Shawn paused during an interview with Axios co-founder Mike Allen as a handwritten poster board sign was held up that read: “Coming for Blacks & Indians first welcome to the new world order.”
Mr Shawn called out the sign in the broadcast stating, “We just saw a very disturbing sign, it said, 'Coming for Blacks and Indians first, welcome to the New World Order.
“I mean, who the hell knows, you know, what people have, and what they will say about those things.”
The footage being broadcasted was from the Million MAGA March that was held in Washington D.C. on Saturday.
The sign quickly attracted the attention of people online, drawing heat for its blatant racism. However, many also expressed surprise at the Fox News anchor’s reaction. One twitter user wrote: “Why is he shaken? How can he be surprised? Years and years of racism, lies, propaganda, and incitement to violence by his network are directly responsible for this.”
This isn’t the first time an outrageous sign board has been spotted at a MAGA rally. Earlier, a sign against LGBT+ people was spotted, which read, “Trump, Make America Great Again, Ban Homo Marriage.”
The march was called in support of Mr Trump and his claims of “rigging” in the elections that Trump campaign is fighting lawsuits against. However, none of the claims of fraud have been proven so far.
