Vice TV's Cari Champion and sports commentator Jemele Hill asked YouTuber Jake Paul it it was racist to knock out NBA star Nate Robinson, who is a black man, in their viral boxing match.

Paul boxed Robinson in a scheduled six-round match, November 28, that only lasted two rounds after Paul knocked out Robinson in only the 2nd round.

Reporters Champion and Hill interviewed Paul on Vice TV in a video released December 3rd, pressing the young YouTuber on the racial implications of his knockout victory against the ex-basketball player.

"First and foremost, was it racist to knock a black man out?" Champion asked Paul, who is white.

"No, stop asking me that," Paul replied, frustrated by the question.

"I said no. It's a sh#tty question, it's a sport," Paul continued.

Champion pressed him on the matter, asking, "Why is it a sh#tty question?"

Paul replied, "because, how does this have anything to do with race? It doesn't."

Champion responded in a condescending tone, "it's a fine question, we gotta wake you up. You gotta be a part of this conversation."
