President Joe Biden has come under fire again, this time for instructing a White House attendee to "hush up, boy" during a ceremony honoring the Islamic holiday Eid-al-Fitr. The unpleasant interaction occurred while the President was celebrating the occasion in front of a large gathering when the audience member, who is thought to be a Muslim person, interjected. 

"You want to come and make a speech?" Biden answered after receiving jeers from the crowd. He proceeded in a mocked Southern drawl, "Hush up, boy, as my mother would say," to the amusement of the other guests. The President has already drawn criticism for using the word "boy" in other statements, most recently in February when he referred to Wes Moore, the state's first Black governor.
