The White House press briefing devolved into chaos after a reporter claimed Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre was “making a mockery of the First Amendment.”

On Monday, the cast of “Ted Lasso,” including Jason Sudeikis and Hannah Waddingham, joined the briefing to speak about mental health. With the Hollywood cast standing awkwardly behind Jean-Pierre, Today News Africa Chief White House Correspondent Simon Ateba began yelling.

Ateba appeared to be frustrated over Jean-Pierre’s choice of reporters to call on and claimed that he had been unable to ask a question in seven months. The reporter repeatedly claimed that the White House discriminated against him and other reporters.


The chaos continued after the guests left the room, as Ateba blasted Jean-Pierre for not taking his questions for the past seven months, and other reporters began yelling at him to be quiet.

Ateba then lashed out in a series of Twitter posts.

This @WhiteHouse Correspondent @ZekeJMiller for @AP is a disgrace to the First Amendment and journalism. He believes he’s better than me. But he’s not. He apologized to @PressSec Karine Jean-Pierre today for discriminating against me for seven months. In the past 7 months, as I sat behind him, I watched him him ask those questions at every press briefing, he became entitled, believing that he’s better than those who get no questions. This is insane!” he wrote.

Responding to the Fox News report, Ateba wrote, This is @FoxNews top story. I never wanted to throw briefing into so-called chaos. I just want to be given the same dignity and get an opportunity to ask questions, whether they are uncomfortable or not. It’s a shame what’s going on
