MSNBC has cut ties with one of its most controversial hosts. Many people have said that she says racist things about white people. Tiffany Cross, who has been hosting “Cross Connection,” a commentary show on MSNBC on Saturdays, is leaving the network. Her staff found out on Friday.
“MSNBC decided not to renew Cross’ contract after two years, according to one of these people, and severed ties with her immediately. A rotating group of anchors will lead her weekend hours until a replacement is found, and the production staff assigned to her show are believed to be likely to stay in place,” the report stated.
“There has been speculation that Cross’ relationship with MSNBC was becoming frayed, according to two of these people, with executives at the network growing concerned about the anchor’s willingness to address statements made by cable-news hosts on other networks and indulging in commentary executives felt did not meet the standards of MSNBC or NBC News,” it reported.
Last month, Megyn Kelly, who used to be a host on Fox News, called Cross a “moron” and a “dumbass” and called her “the most racist person on television” because Cross said that Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa is black.
The MSNBC host said, “To see all these Black men crashing into each other with a bunch of White owners, White coaches, and the complete disregard for Black bodies and Black life, I mean, it just represents a larger issue.”
Kelly said that the quarterback is not African American because his parents are from Samoa.
“He’s not Black. Hello? You dumbass, Tiffany Cross,” the ex-host of Fox News said. “She’s the most racist person on television. It’s amazing. Maybe she just doesn’t see color. Anyway, he’s not Black, but according to her he is. Oh, and by the way, his coach isn’t White either.”
“Oh my God. I’m sorry. I wasn’t planning on starting with this moron Tiffany Cross, but it’s so good,” she continued.
She said, “He’s Samoan and his coach is mixed race. Had a white parent and a Black parent. So, anyway, he’s not White. I guess in Tiffany’s world that’s White. But in any event, this person sees everything through a ‘it’s racist’ prism.”
Cross, as she always does, brought up race as a response to the comment.
“Yes, I know. Megyn Kelly — the Blackface expert — had a lot to say about me this week based on something I actually never said. So I just want to tell her, you swung and you missed,” she replied.
“Please, girl, move on with your life. It’s giving obsessed and honestly, guys, the Jesus and Santa are white lady is not going to claw her way back to social relevance on my show. Besides didn’t I merc her once already?” she asked.

She also said horrible things about Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas on the same show.
“Which brings me to another problematic white woman who warrants some attention this week: Clarence Thomas. On this very day in 1991, ‘Justice Pubic Hair on my Coke Can’ was confirmed to the Supreme Court, and even though we collectively knew how bad it was then, we didn’t know just how problematic Tom would be until now,” she exclaimed.
She said there are many problems with Thomas, the biggest being “his insurrectionist-sympathizing, Jordan Peel Get Out-inspired wife.”
She continued, “Sadly we won’t get to see the Real Housewives of Insurrection’s testimony before the January 6th committee, because they reportedly reached an agreement with her to not videotape.”
It comes as rumors spread that Joy Reid, a far-left host, may be leaving her job. The number of people watching Reid’s show has dropped in recent months and especially since it started almost two years ago. “The Reid Out,” a show that airs at 7 p.m. ET, had just over a million viewers.
In comparison, almost 2.31 million people watched “Jesse Watters Primetime” on Fox News during the same time slot. Erin Burnett of CNN came in third place, with about 722,000 people watching her on cable news channels as a whole.
