‘Good Morning America’ Deletes Tweet on ‘First Black Supreme Court Justice’

America’s most-watched TV morning show made a humiliating mistake Thursday.


As the newest addition to the Supreme Court, Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson officially took her place on the bench following Justice Stephen Breyer’s retirement.

ABC’s “Good Morning America” erroneously tweeted, “Ketanji Brown Jackson is sworn in as the first Black Supreme Court justice in U.S. history.”

Despite what the now-deleted Tweet claimed, Jackson is the third black justice to serve on the high court.

Do you think the erroneous tweet was intentional?

Thurgood Marshall became the first when he was appointed in 1967. After serving for over 20 years, Marshall was replaced by the second black justice, Clarence Thomas, who is still on the bench today.

The incorrect tweet remained on the morning show’s Twitter account for nearly five hours, according to Fox News.

GMA’s Youtube channel featured a video captioned with the same mistake.

The caption on the video was corrected shortly after the Tweet was deleted. After rectifying their errors, GMA Tweeted a correction of the mistake.

The blunder incited a great deal of criticism on Twitter from conservatives who saw the error as an example of mainstream media bias against justice Thomas, the current Black member of the court.

Christina Pushaw, the spokesperson for Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) wrote, “They didn’t vote for Biden, so they “ain’t black” in Democrat/media world view.”

Media Research Center’s Nick Fondacaro replied, “Even if ABC’s intention was to spite Justice Clarence Thomas, they still overlooked Justice Thurgood Marshall.”

While GMA’s tweet was certainly incorrect, Jackson joining the Supreme Court is historic as she is the first black woman to serve in this capacity.
