After being branded “Mammy Tammy” by angry social media users, embattled Dallas judge Tammy Kemp continues to speak out against the ongoing backlash she’s enduring after exhibiting what many are deeming “inappropriate” and “unethical” behavior during the infamous Amber Guyger trial.
As we reported here, Kemp went on a media blitz earlier this week that saw her sit down with CNN, CBS, and a number of local news outlets to plead her case against critics who slammed her for hugging Guyger after the former policewoman was convicted of killing an innocent Black man.
Breaking down, the judge tearfully commented:
“Frankly, I don’t think I would getting this criticism if Miss Guyger were a Black woman. I hate that we limit our compassion to one race.”
Taking to today’s ‘Tamron Hall Show’ (October 10), Kemp not only broke down again while addressing the controversy and fears for her safety, but also echoed the sentiment of earlier interviews – even saying that ‘no one would refuse giving [Guyger] a hug’ under the circumstance.
