The US Coast Guard says it has “removed” a member of its tropical storm Florence response team from duty after he was accused of making a “white power” sign live on air.
The unidentified team member glanced at the camera before briefly making the hand gesture, provoking a social media backlash.
He was seen sitting at a desk in the background as MSNBC interviewed Coast Guard Commanding Officer Capt John Reed in Charleston, South Carolina, on Friday night.
The agency responded swiftly to the ensuing outcry.
