US President Donald Trump addressed the media at a conference on the outbreak of coronavirus at the White House, Washington DC on February 26.
A video of a New York Post journalist surfaced online which showed her “mocking” an Indian reporter during the conference, and it has left netizens angry.
In the viral clip, an Indian journalist can be seen raising a question about India-US relationships post Trump’s two-day visit to the country. While the Indian reporter was questioning Trump, the New York Post reporter, who was sitting behind him, was seen making faces at him.
A Twitter user with the handle @damonimani shared the video with the caption: "Who is that reporter in the green mocking an Indian reporter? I bet she thinks Trump is racist."

Within no time, the video went viral and Twitter was left furious over the behavior of the American journalist, who is now identified as, Ebony Bowden.
The video has gained over three million views and is flooded with angry comments. Several users accused her of being “racist” and for “mocking” the reporter’s accent.
Damon Imani, who shared the video on Twitter, took to the same thread to reveal that the Indian reporter, who was mocked by Ebony is Raghubir Goyal. "He has been a White House reporter since President Carter and he speaks better English than most of us speak Hindi," he wrote in a tweet.
- She could be laughing at what he is saying (since it’s not related to the subject of the conference)— Damon imani (@damonimani) February 27, 2020
- She could be laughing at his accent.
I don’t know, you don’t neither, because we can’t read her mind.
The only thing we can say is that it doesn’t look professional.
Shoutout to Mr. Goyal.— Damon imani (@damonimani) February 27, 2020
