Let us start this story by saying that Don Lemon stays losing. The CNN anchorman was down in South Carolina covering the murder of nine people in a historic Black church by a white male terrorist when a Black woman decided she wouldn’t wait until the cameras stopped rolling to let him know exactly how she felt about him.
“Are you angry, Don?,” the woman can be heard saying emphatically as Lemon was speaking with his colleague John Bernman about the situation in Charleston.
At one point the woman—who seemed upset over a lack of coverage of the anger in Charleston—even called Mr. Lemon, and Barack Obama for good measure, an Uncle Tom.
Needless to say, the clip has already started trending, it can be seen below, and the slander will surely be phenomenal. After all, this is Don Lemon.
However, don’t let this distract you from the tragedy that occurred in Charleston last night. #staywoke
