Though recent years have seen him lean more to the side of ally on Black issues, CNN anchor Don Lemon is no stranger to criticism for his sometimes controversial commentary on racial politics – often finding his views opposed to that of the Black majority.
For that reason (and a few others), Lemon is back in the hot seat for trying to school actor Terry Crews on the true meaning of Black Lives Matter. Fans of Crews know he has been under fire in recent weeks for criticizing the movement (as we reported here).
Yet, when the ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ star took to ‘CNN Tonight’ Monday (July 6) to double down on his BLM stance, Lemon used the opportunity to educate him on why it was problematic. The result? The two engaged in a heated exchange that led both of them to being roasted on Twitter.
