Journalist and MSNBC correspondent Joy Reid gave the ultimate smack down to conservative writer Larry O'Connor. He recently wrote an article for Mediaite criticizing Trevor Noah and James Corden for speaking out on gun control issues. The piece, titled, "Nothing More Infuriating Than Foreign-Born TV Stars Lecturing Americans On Gun Ownership" said that Noah and Corden couldn't possibly have a "fundamental understanding of the 2nd amendment" because they are not Americans.

In fact I’d take being lectured by foreign comedians every day for the rest of my life over seeing mass carnage met with politcal cowardice.— Joy Reid (@JoyAnnReid) October 3, 2017

Exactly. So frustrated with the idea that you have to live here, among other "qualifications," to have an opinion on how messed up this is.— Isaac R. Katz (@Telamonian_Ajax) October 3, 2017
We US-based foreigners have exactly the same chance of being shot as Americans, so I think we’re entitled to an opinion.— Paola Thomas (@realpaolathomas) October 3, 2017
