CNN anchor Don Lemon has landed himself in hot water yet again for his controversial stance on hot topics. The reporter, who has long garnered criticism from the African American community for upholding views contrary to the community at large, has now added a new number to that growing list – support of New York‘s ‘stop & frisk’ law.
Speaking during his regular slot on the Tom Joyner show, Lemon said that police were not always very respectful of the people they stopped, but that tampering with the “formula that has reduced crime in New York City” could be very dangerous.
“The question is, would you rather be politically correct or safe and alive?” he concluded.
The result was a social media melee. See some of our favorites below (#donlemonon):
