Marcus can be heard asking Robinson if Mayfield needs his permission before speaking, but the lieutenant governor did not appear to respond.

Mayfield had given the speech in response to a vote in the North Carolina legislature. During her oration, she compared the violence perpetrated against Black people to the discrimination and hate shown towards members of the gay community.

"It is convenient fiction that we can say something in a particular forum and not expect to be held accountable for those words in another," Mayfield stated. "We are elected officials. And if we can't respect our constituents rather than viciously attack some of them, then maybe we're in the wrong job."

Marcus also recorded a portion of Mayfield's speech and posted it on Twitter. Robinson can also be briefly seen in the video, seated at his podium while listening to the oration.

Mayfield's words seemed to refer to statements that Robinson has made in the past about the LGBTQ community.

Many Democrats on the left chastised Robinson after these words. The White House also released a statement condemning his remarks.

"These words are repugnant and offensive," Deputy Press Secretary Andrew Bates stated. "The role of a leader is to bring people together and stand up for the dignity and rights of everyone; not to spread hate and undermine their own office."

Additional statements against Robinson were made by a variety of LGBTQ support groups in North Carolina and across the nation.
