Iranian-American Muslim fashion blogger Hoda Katebi was on the show to talks about bridging the gap between America and the Middle East through fashion. She was also narrating her ordeal of being an American hijab wearing Muslim and how she was physically assaulted in the sixth grade in Oklahoma.

The hosts of the show asked, "Let's talk about nuclear weapon". Katebi responded by saying, "OK", but it was clear that she was uncofortable talking on the subject.

The show was aired live on January 31. Katebi was invited to the show for an interview on her book, Tehran Street Style, and her fashion blog.

"So hindsight is always 20/20, and I honestly should have just stopped him right there and questioned why he thought it was okay to make this ridiculous comment and pose it as a question..." she wrote on her blog after the interview.
