    While Biden's campaign adviser claimed that the remark made by the former was merely a jest, a number of social media users didn't seem inclined to agree with her.

    US senator and Democratic presidential hopeful Joe Biden has apparently landed in hot water after making a rather colorful remark about a certain category of American voters.

    During an interview on “The Breakfast Club” radio show, Biden told host Charlamagne the God that “if you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black”.

    As Fox News points out, Biden made this remark while going into “a rapid-fire defense of his record with the black community”, and it wasn't immediately clear whether he was referring to the host or to the black community in general.

    ​Nevertheless, the interview ended on "a mutually positive note", the media outlet adds.

    Quite a few social media users, however, did not seem all that pleased with Biden's choice of words.

    ​And while Biden's campaign adviser Symone Sanders claimed that his remark was in fact a joke, a number of people appeared unconvinced by her reasoning.
