MSNBC's Joy Reid accused Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) of "child abuse" Friday after black children were photographed holding anti-critical race theory signs.
In a tweet Friday night, Reid used phrases such as "anti-Black" and "extra sick" to describe the sentiment she felt while reacting to an evening tweet from Florida state Sen. Shevrin Jones, who tweeted earlier: "The fact that @GovRonDeSantis had these Black young men, who are not clear on this message, holding up a sign about something they know nothing about is the real indoctrination."
"This mis-use of Black boys is tantamount to child abuse," Reid tweeted.
"I would really like to hear the back-story on who these kids were and how they wound up at a DeSantis event. Given how anti-Black DeSantis is, using Black children this way is extra sick," Reid quote tweeted in response to Jones.
