Fox’s Brian Kilmeade Asks Black Co-host if She Makes Kool-Aid
Fox's Brian Kilmeade Asks Black Co-host If She Makes Kool-Aid (Huffington Post)
A "Fox & Friends" segment on peach cobbler appeared to get uncomfortably tense when anchor Brian Kilmeade asked co-host Harris Faulkner if she serves Kool-Aid with her meals.
The question was dished out as Faulkner, who is African-American, presented her recipe ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday.
After Faulkner mentioned that a summer version of her cobbler can be prepared as well, Kilmeade, who is white, asked, “Do you make Kool-Aid?”
As the video above shows, the lively chatter among the four hosts came to a brief halt as Faulkner reacted.
What Kilmeade may or may not know is that the popular mixed drink can be used to racially stereotype African-Americans, similarly to fried chicken or watermelon.
