3. Trans Woman To CNN Anchor: ‘You Just Committed Violence Against Me’
A transgender woman who was being introduced to ask a question of Castro criticized CNN anchor Nia Mikayla Henderson for mispronouncing her name.
“I want to bring in ‘Shay Diamond,’ a singer-songwriter from Los Angeles. She currently supports Mayor Pete Buttigieg. Shay, what’s your question?” Henderson asked.
“Uhm, it’s ‘Shia Diamond,’” an irritated Diamond clapped back. “Put that on the record… It’s violence to misgender, or to alter a name of, a trans person so let’s always get that right first.”
