Live CNN Broadcast From California Gets Too 'Real' After Homeless Woman Wanders Into the Frame

CNN viewers were left stunned after a person, who appeared to be a homeless woman, wandered into a live CNN broadcast from Santa Monica, California, on Monday morning. 

The video: As correspondent Sara Snider was reporting on a surge in coronavirus cases and hospitalizations in the state and nationwide, the unidentified woman stopped in the background.
  • The woman put down a garbage bag she was carrying, removed her pants and squatted on the beach. 
  • It can be assumed she proceded to relieve herself.
The reactions: A number of Americans watching "CNN Newsroom" at home expressed shock and horror on social media.
