Cable television star Tiffany Cross has long used her weekly show as a platform for making inflammatory and racially charged statements. However, it seems that platform will no longer be available.
According to Mediaite, MSNBC informed Cross this past Friday that her program was being canceled.
Cross says country should “castrate Florida”
The website reported that Cross’ contract will not be renewed while staff who spent the last two years working on The Cross Connection will remain at MSNBC.
Mediaite cited sources familiar with the matter as saying that Cross had been repeatedly warned that her show “did not adhere to MSNBC’s standards.” Cross’ controversies include comparing Florida to male genitalia and calling for the state to be castrated.
“Seriously, let’s castrate Florida,” Mediaite quoted her as saying during a recent episode of Comedy Central’s “Hell Of A Week.”
“Here’s the problem, Ron DeStupid, Ron DeSantis, whatever you want to call Florida Man, he is so problematic,” she continued.
“The people there passed Amendment Four, which gave returning citizens, those formerly incarcerated, the right to vote,” Cross complained.
“He instituted a poll tax. He has done everything he can to keep Black and brown people from the ballot. He trafficks in stupidity and ignorance and I just think they are a problem for the rest of the country. Let’s get them out,” she concluded, referring to DeSantis’s requirement that convicted felons pay all of their fines, restitution and court costs before they can vote.
Fringe progressive and racist Tiffany Cross, as bad a human being as a teleprompter reader, is out at MSNBC. Good riddance. MSNBC doesn’t have many standards but she violated what little they have of them. https://t.co/vuI1K9t7UB

Tucker Carlson accuses MSNBC of promoting anti-white “race hate”
Mediaite noted that last month, Fox News host Tucker Carlson accused Cross and other MSNBC anchors of promoting anti-white racism.
“It’s remarkable. Given that opposing racism is America’s national religion, it may surprise you to learn that open race hate forms much of the substance of that channel’s programming,” Carlson said before playing a series of clips in which MSNBC hosts could be seen criticizing white people.
“When we say race hate, we’re not referring to the subtle coded variety,” the conservative commentator went on to stress. “We’re talking about the kind of race hate you cannot mistake for anything else.”
