A transgender attendee at last night’s LGBTQ town hall accused host Nia Mikayla Henderson of perpetrating “violence” after the CNN host got the pronunciation of her name wrong.
Henderson introduced the trans person as Shea Diamond, pronouncing the first name ‘shay’.
“Erm, it’s Shea Diamond,” responded the trans person, pronouncing the first name ‘she-a’.
“Put that on record,” said Diamond, to which Henderson responded, “It’s on the record.”

“Yes honey, it’s violence to misgender or to alter a name of a trans person, so let’s always get that right first” asserted Diamond.
As we reported earlier, this was by no means the only highlight of the night.
Get woke, get humiliated.
I used to think CNN town halls were a tragedy, but now I realize they’re a comedy.
