Sunny Hostin told a horrifying story recently during the latest episode of The View. Sonny dished on an incident over the weekend when unlikely suspects called her the “N-word.”
While some people think that the word that shall not be named is never spoken of in today’s society, it appears as though sometimes people still use it to belittle African-Americans.
During a vacation on the fourth of July, Sunny, the co-host on The View, said that while she and her friends and family celebrated Independence day at their beachfront rental home in Long Island New York, a bunch of children yelled at them from a distance.
According to the host, they yelled, “This is America! We are patriots.” Hostin said she was “visibly shaken” because the particular beachfront they were on was always their “safe haven.”
Sunny said, “it was so shocking because, in 12 years or more, nothing like that has ever happened to us.” According to the co-host on The View, they fought back and asked them if they used the “n-word,” and while they didn’t say they did, they never denied it either.
It may have been an unlikely scenario, but that certainly doesn’t make it ok, either way. Regardless, no one should have to endure such comments in civil society, especially, Sunny Hostin.
The talk show host is not only a super successful commentator but also a lawyer, a columnist, a journalist, as well as a social media pundit.
Currently, she is an analyst and a senior legal correspondent for ABC News as well as the co-host of The View, along with Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar. She had a modest beginning in America, born in the Big Apple to her Puerto Rican mother, Rosa Beza, and her father of African descent, William Cummings.
