Telemundo Reporter Attacked on Live TV

A US woman has been arrested after punching a female reporter in the face during a live cross.

Telemundo 62 journalist Iris Delgado was wrapping up a report outside Philadelphia’s City Hall on Wednesday night when she was approached by Waheedah Wilson.

Wilson said "excuse me?" several times, while Delgado continued speaking to the camera, then grabbed her and punched her in the head.

"Oh my god, we hope she’s okay," anchor Ramon Zayas exclaimed in Spanish.

The Telemundo 62 camera crew followed the woman until she was arrested by police shortly after.

Wilson punched Delgado three times before shoving her to the ground, witnesses said.

She has been charged with assault.

NBC, which owns the Spanish language channel, said Delgado is recovering.

"Iris Delgado was the victim of an unprovoked attack by an individual while reporting live for Telemundo62’s 11 PM local newscast. Thankfully, she is ok and is understandably taking some time off to recover. We look forward to her return," the company said in a statement.

Wilson, 37, has had numerous run-ins with the law, Philly Voice reports.

When people of color act like that, they earn the title of being from "Niggeria".

This is the logical outcome of the entitlement mindset, where you have the right to threaten force against those who don't do as you like. It is the opposite of the free mindset, where you assert the right to defend yourself against unprovoked attack.

She probably thought the reporter was white - she just knew how to speak Spanish...

And had the reporter in fact been white, this would have been perfectly acceptable and excusable behavior. Very likely no arrest made or charges filed.
