Black Twitter Drags Don Lemon Over Talib Kweli Interview [Photos]

 

Tensions are running so high in Ferguson that members of the same side are even warring with one another.

Talib Kweli succeeded Killer Mike as the latest Hip-Hop personality to be interviewed by CNN over the fallout from the Michael Brown shooting. However his airtime with anchor Don Lemon was anything but productive.

As previously reported, the trouble began when the Gravitas composer expressed his opinion on how “horrible” the news coverage of the turmoil in Ferguson was. Naturally, Lemon took offense to such a statement and the two engaged in verbal combat on live television. Kweli also took issue to how Lemon didn’t know how to properly pronounce his name.

Lemon is perceived as an opponent to the Hip-Hop community (and many African-Americans in general), so the reception was he needed more people. And he obviously didn’t have them after Black Twitter reacted.

Do yourself a favor and look at these incendiary responses down below. Sometime we all just can’t get along.

    Dom Lemon is just trying to get back his black card that he never had!

    Don Lemon just needs to stop talking. Most African-Americans do not like him because they think he is out of touch and can’t relate to their struggles. The more he opens his mouth, the less likely he will be taken seriously.

  • lol

    He absolutely interrupted Talib at an inappropriate time. He should have let him finish,his point, then informed him of the other articles.

    don lemon shouldn’t have given the rapper any time on the air IMO. On the other hand look how intelligent Russell Simmons was.
