“He’s Irish and black? It’s amazing!” – Woke host Ryan Tubridy squirms in his seat at awkward comment




After a slew of politically correct nonsense in the first half of Lynn Ruane and Miriam Margoyles’ interview, a very awkward moment rose when the 81-yr-old appeared to be utterly stunned that some Irish people are, in fact, black people as well.

Speaking about Ireland’s upcoming Oscar entries, Tubridy mentioned Daryl McCormack, to which Margoyles’ said, “yes, and he’s black!”.

A very awkward Tubridy said, yes, he’s mixed race and Irish, it’s common now.

An awkward silence fell on the crowd with a red-faced and an awkward Ruane quickly trying to move on.
