Viewers of Gayle King‘s latest CBS Mornings interview aren’t happy with how she sidestepped a major issue involving The Color Purple author Alice Walker.

Madame Noire reports that the journalist sat down with Walker to promote Walker’s latest book, Gathering Blossoms Under Fire, co-written by Zora Neale Hurston biographer, the late Valerie Boyd. While King asked Walker about her legacy and writing prowess, viewers noted how King didn’t press Walker on her controversial opinions that have been regarded as anti-Semitic.
