Joy Reid, the host of the American television show 'The ReidOut', has been widely slammed by netizens after she said that the only reason the world cares about the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine is because it's "happening in Europe" and to a "white and largely Christian" nation. She made the racial remark on the episode that aired Monday, March 7.

"As the world watches the devastation unfold in Ukraine, nearly 4,000 miles away, another crisis is deepening that we don’t hear much about in the US, and that is the war in Yemen. The coverage of Ukraine has revealed a pretty radical disparity in how human Ukrainians look and feel to western media compared to their browner and blacker counterparts, with some reporters using very telling comparisons in their analyses of the war," said Reid.

"Let's face it. The world is paying attention because this is happening in Europe. If this was happening anywhere else, would we be seeing the same outpour of support and compassion? We don't need to ask ourselves if our response would be the same if Russia unleashed their horror on a country that wasn't white and largely Christian. Because Russia has already done it, in Syria," the 53-year-old concluded.

Slamming Reid's remark, author and host Tim Young tweeted, "Joy Reid once again confirms that she's racist trash by saying that America only cares about Ukraine because it's white people... And the people who run NBC are ok with this messaging... which makes them no different." Republican candidate Lavern Spicer said, "EVERYTHING Joy Reid says is something that would violate social media terms of service for racism, but because she says it against white people for NBC it gets amplified. [face palm emoji]."

She's such a racist." A third said, "I can't think of anything Joy Reid is known for except being a racist," and further added, "First...Missing White Woman Syndrome. Then later Joy Reid accused Elon Musk of cultural appropriation after he said 'Karen' And now she tries to make a war all about racism. This woman really needs to SHUT UP".

Radio host Paul Joseph Watson wrote, "Every issue covered by MSNBC's Joy Reid is filtered through her race bait tinted spectacles, and the conflict over Ukraine is no different." Fox News host Sean Hannity added, "THE LEFT'S RACE OBSESSION: MSDNC'S Joy Reid claimed that the world is only paying attention to the war in Ukraine because it’s a 'white' nation. TONIGHT on 'Hannity,' @LaraLeaTrump' and @TheLeoTerrell' will respond to her absurd comments." One user commented, "Joy Reid is a racist piece of shit of a human being..." Another tweeted, "@MSNBC When Joy Reid has nothing left to play, she plays the TRUMP and RACE cards saying that the only reason the world is paying attention to Ukraine is because they're white Christians. This is what DESPERATION, DEFEATED and FAKE NEWS looks and sounds like."

While one user said, "Joy Reid is a racist piece of shit. Period. End of tweet," another commented, "Joy Reid appears to be one of the biggest racist in American history?" A third tweeted, "Joy Reid proves she a racist every time she is on air." A fourth replied, "How many of those other crises you mention is your network covering Joy? How many are you covering? Stop trying to divide people by race. It is not helpful."
