Adam Housley on Interracial Marriage Attacks: ‘Backwards, Bigoted’ and ‘Pathetic’

adam housley wedding photoFox News senior correspondent Adam Housley is opening up about criticism directed at him and his wife, Tamara Mowry-Housley, over their interracial marriage.

In a recent interview with OWN, an emotional Mowry said she has “never experienced so much hate ever in my life.” She said she gets called “white man’s whore” and receives comments like “back in the day you cost $300, but now you’re giving it to him for free.”

“The fact that in this day and age, we get attacked for our interracial relationship is beyond sad…it is pathetic,” Housley tells TVNewser. “Yes I am white. Yes she is half black. Marrying a white man does not erase her color and marrying a woman who is half black does not mean I am blinded. The problem isn’t pigmentation…the problem is backwards, bigoted thought from people who should know better.”

Mowry and Housley were married in 2011 and welcomed a son in 2012. Watch Mowry’s OWN interview, which also features her twin and “Sister Sister” co-star Tia Mowry, after the jump.
