Anchor responds on air to viewer who called her the 'N word'

Reed added that she responded to the viewer, who complained that the anchor called her out for misspelling the n-word.

The viewer, who gave her name as Kathy Rae, accused Reed of "race baiting". Specifically, they were discussing the part that race was playing in the contest between Councilwoman Keisha Lance Bottoms, who is black, and Councilwoman Mary Norwood, who is white. And one of those pieces of mail came from a woman named "Kathy Rae", who made a decision to use the N-word in a piece of mail Reed showed on air. She explained that she believes discussions on race are important and that it's an issue that had entered the mayor's race.

Rather than taking the abuse lying down, Reed made a decision to call Kathy Rae out live on the air, delivering a scathing response right down the barrel of the camera.

"I would say to Kathy, a couple of things". You are what I call a N***r not a black person.

Reed has also commented on the now-viral moment, telling the Atlanta Journal Constitution that she chose to use the n-word in its entirety in the moment, and that she is "not a fan of the use" of the word in general. Quite the contrary. We think that race is an authentic discussion to have. I don't, ' Reed said.

However, six former Cabinet members were ordered to be released, with bail set at 100,000 euros ($118,635). While around 90 percent of participants voted for independence, the voter turnout was only 43 percent.

"So, I think when arguing with somebody, you have to be careful not to mischaracterize their viewpoint, so I won't mischaracterize your view either, Kathy Rae. And that will be the last word". That's why, behind the scenes, my colleagues and I - white and Black - we decided, hey let's go for it because we do try to keep it real here.

Police also told the Daily News in 2002 that Reed, then 30, "admitted to us that she was responsible for the harassment and the threats" directed at Taylor.

Reed said the response has been "nice" and acknowledged that while everyone can have their own and differing opinions, they must be responsible for them, too. "But we all have to be responsible for those views". I'm sure Kathy Rae was just thrilled.

"But if you do, be fearless".
