Day two of the Republican National Convention has been marred by an incident in which two attendees reportedly threw nuts at a black camera operator for CNN, telling her, "This is how we feed animals."

The incident, which occurred on the day when Ann Romney and Chris Christie were delivering speeches to delegates, was first reported on Twitter by former MSNBC anchor David Shuster, and reported out by website Talking Points Memo, which obtained confirmation of the altercation from CNN but no further details.
