Halle Berry says what she thinks.
The 54-year-old actress came into conversation during an episode of “The Morning Bull Show” podcast which was shared on Twitter, in which host Rob Lederman spoke of his attraction to certain black women.
Before admitting his preference for lighter-skinned women, the radio host admitted he “might be in trouble for that.”
“I’ll never go up to Serena Williams’ level,” he said, referring to her darker complexion. “But I’m very comfortable with Halle Berry. I need a little mulatto yet to come. ”

A co-host then asked if Gayle King was in Lederman’s “realm”.
“No, Gayle King is not even at the level of my toaster,” Lederman replied.
A representative from the podcast’s parent company, Cumulus Media, confirmed to People magazine that Lederman’s comments resulted in his dismissal.
Additionally, Buffalo News reports that two co-hosts, Rich “Bull” Gaenzler and Chris Klein, have also been suspended.
Now Berry is sharing his thoughts on the matter.

“Please know that my comments were ignorant, but not meant to be hurtful, but I know that I and many others need to learn from this,” Lederman added. “This is a great opportunity for communication to begin so this mistake can heal – not divide. I will do my best to use what I am learning as a platform to better understand and hopefully help others, while helping myself.
