Adam Housley, a Fox News correspondent out of Los Angeles, lashed out at people who have maded racially insensitive remarks toward him and his wife, calling their comments and views “pathetic.” Housley, who is white, is married to actress Tamera Mowry, who is black.
On Monday, Mowry told Oprah Winfrey that she has received “hurtful” remarks about her marriage to Housley, including people calling her a “white man’s whore.” “People choose to look past love and spew hate,” she said. Mowry added that her twin sister Tia has been called a “true black woman” because she married a black man.
When asked about the verbal attacks on his wife, Housley said that the targeting slurs ”is beyond sad.”
“The problem isn’t pigmentation . . . the problem is backwards, bigoted thought from people who should know better,” he told TVNewser.
Mowry and Housley married in 2011, and welcomed a son a year later.
