“Arguably the most racist host on the network this side of Joy Reid.”
Tiffany Cross has been a weekend host on MSNBC for two years, but she quickly made a name for herself by espousing far left political ideas and saying things that were downright racist. Now the network has cut her show.
Media critic Joe Concha was pretty frank about it on Twitter.
Arguably the most racist host on the network this side of Joy Reid. Once referred to Sen. Tim Scott as a “token” and “clown.” The list of outright racist comments by her and certain guests are too many to list here. She’s out at MSNBC. “Standards” cited. https://t.co/CpAJjUYS7F

Variety reported the news but left out the controversial parts:
MSNBC Cuts Ties Unexpectedly With Weekend Host Tiffany Cross
Tiffany Cross, the MSNBC weekend host who was known for running the freewheeling Saturday commentary program “Cross Connection,” is leaving the NBCUniversal-owned cable-news outlet.
Her production staff was informed of the decision Friday morning, according to three people familiar with the matter. MSNBC declined to make executives available for comment, and Cross could not be reached for immediate comment.
MSNBC decided not to renew Cross’ contract after two years, according to one of these people, and severed ties with her immediately. A rotating group of anchors will lead her weekend hours until a replacement is found, and the production staff assigned to her show are believed to be likely to stay in place.
There has been speculation that Cross’ relationship with MSNBC was becoming frayed, according to two of these people, with executives at the network growing concerned about the anchor’s willingness to address statements made by cable-news hosts on other networks and indulging in commentary executives felt did not meet the standards of MSNBC or NBC News.
Virginia Kruta of the Daily Wire reports that some recent comments about Florida from Cross were the last straw:
During a discussion on Comedy Central’s “Hell of a Week with Charlamagne Tha God,” Cross gave her response to the prompt “One’s gotta go” — and her choices were Florida, Arizona, Georgia, and Pennsylvania.
“I say Florida literally looks like the d*** of the country, so let’s get rid of Florida,” she said, adding, “Let’s castrate Florida … Here’s the problem: Ron DeStupid, Ron DeSantis, whatever you want to call Florida man, he is so problematic.”
This was thought to be the “last straw” that got Tiffany Cross fired from MSNBC- she calls Florida, “the dick of the country”. Hours later she was let go. pic.twitter.com/JqEXTw7LxU
