CBS46 anchor Sharon Reed went on the air last night and vented about a viewer who used the N word (spelled incorrectly) in an email to her.

The email, which Reed posted to her Facebook page, makes reference to a conversation Reed had on the air about racism and the Atlanta mayoral race.

Last night during WGCL’s 11 p.m. newscast, Reed closed the show with a response to the viewer. “You think it’s okay to call this journalist a n**ger? I don’t.”

You can watch her entire response below. The video has received more than 64,000 views on Facebook.
