Chris Cuomo Faces Backlash After Apparently Mocking Pro-NRA Rape Survivor

CNN’s Chris Cuomo did not appear to have a lot of sympathy for a rape survivor simply because she supports the 2nd amendment and NRA.

In fact, his tweet was interpreted by many as attempting to mock her.

In a passionate video, Corban says “I’m a mother of two, and if a predator or anyone else tries to harm me or my family, they have to come through my firearm first.”

Cuomo’s reaction?

“Only in America.”

This did not play out well.

Corban responded to Cuomo directly, writing “Hi @ChrisCuomo. Looks like you forgot to tag me. Care to chat about this?”

Emily Miller responded “Good for you! Easy for a man to insult a rape survivor who wants to defend herself from happening again.”

Others chimed in as well.

People like Chris constantly use rape victims to shame people who are against abortion, but when people suggest that arming women is an effective way to decrease the number of rapes and, hopefully, rape victims, suddenly it’s morally repugnant

Chris scrambled to defend himself but conceded “You are right.”
