Mass. Independent Senate Candidate Shiva Ayyadurai Punched In Mouth By Elizabeth Warren Supporter


Independent candidate for Senate, Shiva Ayyadurai, gets punched by Elizabeth Warren supporter at town hall meeting. The man, wearing a t-shirt which said "liberal" and a Warren for Senate sticker, approached Ayyadurai with an umbrella while he bullhorned a queue of Warren supporters outside a town hall in Great Barrington, MA, where the Democratic Senator was scheduled to appear.

CNN's Chris Cuomo quibbled with the characterization that Shiva was "punched in the face," noting that the man really punched the megaphone.

The Senate candidate however posted on Twitter hours later saying he was bleeding:

"This is how these white privileged white supremacists react. What you just witnessed is how you white supremacists react when you don’t want to hear the truth from a dark-skinned Indian guy. The same guy you claim you want to help. Wake up. Wake the f*** up. You guys are f****** racists," Ayyadurai said.
