The decade's most triggering comedy
ABC News’ “Good Morning America” was forced to issue a correction Thursday afternoon after they falsely claimed that Ketanji Brown Jackson was the first black person to be sworn in as a Supreme Court justice.
“Ketanji Brown Jackson is sworn in as the first black Supreme Court justice in U.S. history,” the show tweeted.
The first black Supreme Court justice was Thurgood Marshall, who joined the Court in 1967. The second black Supreme Court justice was Clarence Thomas, who still serves on the Court.
“CORRECTION: Video shows Ketanji Brown Jackson sworn in as the first Black female Supreme Court justice in U.S. history,” the show later said in a separate tweet. “A previous tweet erroneously stated Jackson is the first Black Supreme Court justice.”
