On Tuesday’s episode of The Real, co-host Tamera Mowry declared that her husband, Adam Housley, is not racist despite his former employment at Fox News.
“There are certain people that think my husband is racist because he worked for a certain channel,” Mowry said. “I am going to look in that camera right there and let everybody know my husband is not racist.”
Housely left Fox in August over his frustration with how the news organization was reporting about President Donald Trump, according to Politico.
Mowry and her husband married in 2011. The couple has received backlash on social media for his position at Fox News despite being married to a biracial Black woman.
