Two people removed from Republican convention for throwing nuts at black camerawoman

Two people were removed from the Republican National ConventionĀ  (RNC) for throwing nuts at an African-American camera operator for CNN and telling her: "This is how we feed animals," the cable network revealed.

The incident took place on Tuesday in the Tampa Bay Times Forum where delegates officially nominated Mitt Romney as their Republican candidate to face President Barack Obama in the November 6 national election.

"Two attendees tonight exhibited deplorable behavior. Their conduct was inexcusable and unacceptable. This kind of behavior will not be tolerated," CNN said in a statement.

Several witnesses saw the incident with RNC security and police immediately removing the two people from the forum, added CNN.
