During an interview with hip-hop show The Breakfast Club Monday morning, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton told the minority hosts that she always carries a bottle of hot sauce in her purse.
“What’s something you always have with you?” asked host Angela Yee.
“Hot sauce,” Clinton replied immediately.
“Now listen, I want you to know that people are going to see this and say, ‘She’s pandering to black people,’” host Charlamagne Tha God told Clinton.
“Okay, is it working?” she joked.
The exchange went viral on social media, as skeptical black users took to Twitter to accuse Clinton of pandering.
