Chris Cuomo sparked a firestorm on social media when he said there won’t be police reform or gun control in America until “White people’s kids start getting killed.”
Cuomo, the younger brother of embattled New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, made the controversial statement on his show “Cuomo Prime Time” last week.
During a monologue on the recent deaths of young criminals at the hands of police, Cuomo said police reform and gun control will come at a price for white Americans.
“Shootings, gun laws, access to weapons. Oh, I know when they’ll change. [When] your kids start getting killed. White people’s kids start getting killed.”

Then Cuomo mocked the accent of white people: “What’s going on with these police? Maybe we shouldn’t even have police.”
Cuomo questioned those who blamed the criminal histories of the victims and noncompliance with police orders.
Chris Cuomo’s television ratings have taken a nose dive after the revelations concerning his brother, who is accused of sexual misconduct by dozens of women.
Chris was muzzled by CNN, who banned him from discussing his brother’s troubles on his show.
