Blow, who also works as a CNN contributor, responded to O’Brien’s tweet on Sunday, saying, “I don’t know how to take this ‘good negro’ talk…”
Martin also responded to the story, appearing to support the claims.
“Dude, the internal sh** I had to encounter at CNN would blow folks away,” Martin wrote, adding in another tweet directed at Blow: “Bruh, the sh** said about me by certain people there behind closed doors …”
O’Brien’s tweets came in response to a Huffington Post story about ABC News executive Barbara Fedida alleging that Fedida has a long history of insensitive and racist comments, including once when she referred to cotton-picking with respect to a black reporter.
The story also noted that Fedida frequently referred to female employees at the company as “c**ts,” according to staffers who heard her use the word.
