CNN anchor Erin Burnett implied that Sen. John Kennedy's comment regarding Facebook's user agreement was racist.

On Tuesday's hearing with Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, Kennedy implied that the Facebook user agreement is so difficult to read, it might as well be in Swahili. Kennedy suggested that Zuckerberg's company write a more user-friendly agreement in simpler terms.

“I think everybody understood the point I was trying to make," said Kennedy.
