Gayle King would like Fox News host Jesse Watters to know that black people don’t all look the same.

During an appearance on “The Late Show” with Stephen Colbert Thursday, King addressed Watters’ backhanded compliment for “totally redeeming herself after the Smollett fiasco.” Fellow Fox host Dana Perino had to tell Watters that it was ABC reporter Robin Roberts who interviewed Jussie Smollett, not King.

King said she privately thanked Perino for correcting Watters, and made one simple request to her: “Could you let the rest of your colleagues know that all black people do not look alike?”
