The remarks by billionaire hedge fund manager Daniel Loeb drew bipartisan condemnation on Friday, capped by Gov. Andrew Cuomo directly rebuking them.

Loeb has apologized for a since-deleted comment posted to Facebook in which he suggested the minority leader of the state Senate, Andrea Stewart-Cousins, has hurt people of color more than the Ku Klux Klan. Stewart-Cousins is the first black woman to lead a legislative conference in Albany.

“These comments were deeply hurtful and offensive and there is no place for this type of rhetoric in any discourse — political or otherwise,” Cuomo said in a statement.

A spokesman on Thursday evening had criticized the remarks in similar language to The New York Times. ​

Loeb has been a prolific donor to Republicans and Democrats alike, including the governor, and liberal groups on Friday called on candidates who have received money from him to return the donations.
