Maza, the host of Vox's media literacy series "Strikethrough," accused Crowder on Twitter this week of "repeated, overt attacks on my sexual orientation and ethnicity." He said that the pundit has called him "an anchor baby" and "a lispy queer." He also said that Crowder's videos have caused him to be the "target of ridiculous harassment," adding that "it makes life sort of miserable."
