WATCH: Jim Acosta Heckled in Tampa by ‘Blacks for Trump’

While at a rally in Tampa, Jim Acosta of CNN was heckled by a “massive, angry crowd” of Trump supporters. Some of those heckling included some black Trump supporters holding a sign that read “Blacks for Trump.”

There were many loud boos and chants. One of the protesters right behind Acosta held a sign that said “CNN Sucks.” When Acosta stood up to give a report, the crowd erupted in boos and the “CNN sucks” chant.

Emily L. Mahoney of the Tampa Bay Times posted a video clip of the action:

More on the story, per Mediaite:

“At one point Acosta told Wolf Blitzer, “You can hear there is a chorus of boos and other chants from this Trump crowd here… saying things like ‘CNN sucks,’ ‘go home,’ and ‘fake news.’ Wolf, obviously all of things are false. We’re staying right here. We’re going to do our job and report on this rally to all of our viewers tonight.””
