Don lemon

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.

I say nigra several times a day so his sign don't mean nuffin to me. Nor do I care when people of other races use it cause I shole be callin em it. Ion't know. I just don't curr.

    Don Lemon is that effeminate little boy who never had a father in his life. Don't hate him. Feel sorry for him. CNN will soon lay him off because he's too old and he's too much of a Diva on the set.

  • http://theempirefiend.tumblr.com/ Bird

    I can't feel too sorry for a guy with a great career making a lot of money no matter where his daddy was. His social media attention only gives him more opportunity because he is popular. Much like yourself, Don know what he doin. That's why he keep doin it.

    What I find most appalling is that I have yet to see nary a comment addressing Steebie J calling Freako a special needs producer last night on the after show when I ain't stopped laughing about it yet. Did he say that nigra produced The Birds Are Chirping? LMAO!!! Steebie and Joseline need they own something. I don't know what but something. They are too entertaining to waste away in an ensemble cast. Maybe they could replace Tigger boring butt on the after show.

    Don Brings the noise.

    He is
    Black
    Gay
    and will do whatever CNN says.

    The opposite of Mary Jane's costar. KONA

  • jusstlooking

    Sandra, so you don't have a affinity for him? What happened, it seems years ago, that he was well liked.

  • iWasteTime

    Don Lemon has a daddy?
    Let me do the research!

  • Di Ana

    Seriously? Holding up a dang ole sign... talk about drama. Why not just say it. He is a super Queen... Jeezus.

  • WHITTYwithWORDS

    Mr. Richardson and step-deddy. sounds like some deep south 1950s stuff...

  • WHITTYwithWORDS

    Well...

  • iWasteTime

    I'm looking for the coals the president was racked over.
    The president said it, in context to the question his point was fair and well made.

  • Chitsngiggles

    I usually can't stand him cause he is the King Coon, but I see what he's doing right here. He's putting it out there in white folks face. I get it Don. I get it. I still don't like your punk a$$ though.

  • WHITTYwithWORDS

    This reminds me when my bi-polar/drug addicted unca announced he wrote a guide book about the end of the world. It had pictures and everything..also volumes...we just looked at him with the straight face said "that's nice and kept eating"...I guess what I'm saying it " That's nice Don" continues to enjoy my yogurt....( same ole same ole)

  • Femme404

    I just call him boo....

  • Meme81

    I'm sure he was under orders to put that sign up. The media is trying to do the same thing that church killer tried, and that is create a race war. Since when do journalists hold up signs like this? Since they're trying to get stuff started. I'm not falling for the okey-doke.

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    Awwww...y'all didn't let Uncle do his whole sales pitch? LOL!

  • Yes, I’m That Leah

    I learned to not let Don Lemon irritate me anymore.

  • Floriduhh Evans

  • NakeyaJ Valued Rose since 2011

    I have not read the comments yet, but my question is: When is this man going to stop cooning for CNN? And what I also want to know is what his family thinks about this.

  • LA Chic

    He's always doing or saying dumb sh#$. Like the time he was in Fuergerson Mo. during the protest saying "Wait I smell weed" lol

  • NakeyaJ Valued Rose since 2011

    Hey Reedemed. How are ya?

  • NakeyaJ Valued Rose since 2011

    I died!! You can tell Steevie wanna beat him up so bad, but he is trying to be a better person.

  • <3 LoveDreamLive <3

    ...

  • KDub

    He reminds me of Steven...on Django

  • Chitsngiggles

    That was so funny and coonish at the same time. His a$$ needed to hit the weed. Maybe he can stop acting like he does all the time.

  • Chitsngiggles

    Was that Sam's character? Sam deserved an Oscar for that role. He was goodt!

  • KDub

    Same demeanor. Try to be down. Then run tell masta all about what the black folks doing, tambout, the uprising we planning.

  • NakeyaJ Valued Rose since 2011

    Off Topic (because really screw Don) But did anyone else see 2Chainz play the pastor at Momma Dee church yesterday?

  • WHITTYwithWORDS

    Hell No! Him and his pop up book needed to find all the seats somewhere.

  • http://theempirefiend.tumblr.com/ Bird

    LMAO! He look like him, but I think he act more black than Tom. hehehe

  • AllmylifeIhadtofight

    When he said Nikko was on the same level as A-town and dem cats....

  • Renee Bee

  • GossipKiller

    When life gives you lemons. .. smash em till they admit you got the "juice". He wack as hell.

  • Letmecommentbeforeicant

    Don Lemon is like Samuel L Jackson on D'Jango and the Boondocks

  • OpinionHated

    A n*gger holding a n*gger sign does not offend me in the least bit - he's a scunt...
    Its blacks like him that make it hard to overcome the stigma of racism...

  • jusstlooking

    Samyell, He played the hell out of this role.

    Who was the poster Samuel Yell? Where are they?

  • jusstlooking

    Hey Poser. KISS

  • Floriduhh Evans

    Naw Tom was definitely whitewashed as well lol

  • Trice

    This was the epitome of funny!!!! Thanks for making my day..

  • 1/8

    Black Twitter is outraged, because Don held up a sign with a word on it? They sound like a very astute bunch of people.

    I wonder what Black Twitter thinks about all the black people killing each other, every day. ?

  • <3 LoveDreamLive <3

    ???? Justlooking I'm not for sure what I've done???? I promise I am not an imposter at all. LuvinLife is my screenname (its varies w. luvinvt) since I had AOL/AIM.

    -Please leave me out of any preconceived drama...I'm just here for laughs & fun.

  • Tiffany Miller

    Ms. Lemon is here to entertain... Since he came out, he has overdone his role so that he keeps his job. They were probably going to give him the ax.

  • Enoughsaid2020

    This house slave is at it again! Please fire him, and take him out his own misery! SMH!

  • toni walker

    Instead of using the n-word several times a day work on your poor english grammar and read a book. You deserve to be called the n-word. Say yes I am when people call you one.

  • Renee Bee

    Aha! Another Caribbean sista. I can tell by your font.

  • TheRealLee

    I get what he is doing. He is trying to DEFANG that word. Too bad he's not getting any help from the people that word affects the most. Defang it.

    It's like being called a bitch. If you get called a bitch, just say to make sure it is properly capitalized, or that's your middle name on your drivers license, etc. That word has zero power. JMO.

  • Tysion

    White people murder each other more so then anything thing else. WHY DOESNT ANYONE TALK ABOUT THE MURDERS WHITE FOLKS COMMIT DAILY? YOU'ER MORE LIKELY TO KILL THOSE THAT LIVE AROUND YOU!
    Blacks that kill other blacks go to jail. Whitey kills you whitey goes Scott free. So that whole bull shit about blacks killing each other is just that bull shit! I'm tired of clowns like your self using that same tired weak argument. Blacks have no rights in this country, NONE WHATS SO EVER! DREAD SCOTT! Read it

  • Tysion

    I can't wait for you to become a victim :)

  • Canary Red™

    A "yes sa - no sa" type a negroe.

    Instead of him rebuttaling their debate, that the confederate flag is in comparison with the using N word, as a sophisticated journalist would do...he agrees with the offended people. Why is it that our deliberate woes that are forced upon us are always minimized by the forcees?

    It's like your mama whooping the hell out of you then telling you to stop crying cause that didn't hurt. huh?

  • 1/8

    A victim of what, your stupidity?

  • Tysion

    I know your fate already, just counting down.

  • Hmmm~?

    You must be really fun at parties.

  • Hmmm~?

    I remember way back in about 2011 when a friend of mine who worked at CNN took me and a few of our coworkers on a little tour. Long uneventful story short, we eventually came across Don Lemon at his desk reading his little news stories into the camera (we were outside the room looking into a window and had full vision of him). Surprisingly there was only one other person in the room with him. We were all like ??? where the camera crew at? She was like "they only need one person to handle the cameras, the rest of the tech crew is located elsewhere in the building." We were like oh O.o. Anyways, bout a couple hours later we came across him getting lunch (theres an ENORMOUS food court located in the center of the building) and that nicka was short as fack. I'm about 5'9 and towered over his little puny ass. I can't remember what any of us said to him, but I remember he had this little air of attitude in his voice. Rubbed me the wrong way. Anyways, boring and irrelevant yet somewhat relevant story. Carry on....

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    He can only keep doing it for so long. He is pushing 50. CNN will soon push him out and replace him with a younger version.

  • lexdiamonz

    YaSSS I LIVES for black twitter don sour ass lemon holding up that sign offends me MORE than a white person calling me the same word.. .you SIR, are the problem shame on CNN (coon network news)

    You don't even know how you're going to pay your bills, let alone my fate.

    Sad, ignorant troll.

  • 1/8

    I live in a predominantly white neighborhood in Chicago and I can't remember the last time a white person was murdered by another white person.

    However, a couple of weeks ago, a white man was murdered by a black offender. The thug stole the victim's cellphone and shot him to death.

    Wait... breaking news! Twelve people have been shot in Chicago! At least one person confirmed dead! Guess where the shootings occurred!

  • BRING THE PAYNE

    Bird,Im a chronic user of the word. And yep,whyt folk get it to.it just doesn't bother me as an individual. It doesn't define me as a person nor does it speaks to my intelligence level. And no matta what is said by whom ever here. I'm fine as you should be if this is your stance here in AMERICA where one is free to be what we want!

    No. It's blacks like the thugs and female alley rats in Chicago that feed the "stigma of racism." Don is NOT the problem.

  • 1/8

    Gay men aren't usually hung up on height. I doubt Don has a Napoleon complex.

  • Bernadette Jackson

    Toni, I totally agree. I'm sick of dumb Black folks. Can't read, can't write, then want an award for being ignorant.

  • Yea

    You compare everything to Obama
