CNN Anchor Don Lemon is probably the most hated anchor in all of network news. No one irks Black Twitter more than the narcissistic, attention-seeking news reader.
Last night, during a discussion about the growing debate over the confederate flag, Lemon, 49, held up a confederate flag and said, “This is what America is talking about right now.
“Does this offend you? It is a Confederate flag. Is it a symbol of Southern pride or a symbol of hate?”
Then he held up a black sign with white letters that spelled out the word "NIGGER".
“What about this… does this offend you? President Obama said it out loud in an interview and a lot of people are shocked,” Lemon said.
The backlash was immediate. Just as Obama was raked over glowing red hot coals for uttering "nigger" in a discussion where it wasn't called for, Lemon was similarly dragged all over cyberspace.
He is probably somewhere enjoying every minute of this attention.
