After CBS News correspondent David Begnaud was revealed as the target of a homophobic group chat with Puerto Rican officials, CBS sent him to the island to cover the story — and he shot back the reports of offensive comments by wearing a pride shirt.

  • Begnaud posted a video clip to social media giving a brief update on the protests against the administration.
  • In the clip, he was wearing a T-shirt with the CBS eye colored in a rainbow motif.
  • The shirt appears to be at least similar to a shirt Begnaud and other CBS employees wore in the New York City Pride Parade in June.
  • A photo of Begnaud wearing the shirt in the parade is also used, as of this writing, as his Twitter profile photo.
