Co-op City residents outraged at Glenn Beck remark

Fox News personality Glenn Beck made some controversial comments about Co-op City on his show and residents are outraged.

Beck pointed to a photo of the complex and poked fun at those who live there. He used the 320-acre affordable housing complex as a symbol of failed socialism and entitlement.

While the right-wing pundit is known to cause controversy, residents of the large housing complex say they are upset he targeted their community. Other residents say they hope Beck?s comments will expose hard truths about affordable housing in America.
