Black Twitter REALLY HATES CNN’s Don Lemon
While perusing the social media reaction to the Baltimore riots, I noticed a lot of negative reaction from what appeared to be accounts from African-Americans against CNN’s Don Lemon. While he’s said some fairly stupid things as an anchor, I was shocked at what I found when I looked into it.
Dear @CNN: PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE STOP SENDING @donlemon TO COVER STORIES CONCERNING BLACK PEOPLE. Sincerely, Black America #Baltimore

That one got a ton of retweets, but there were plenty of others who were highly critical of the Lemon [caution! liberal language ahead!!]:
#FreddieGray How you going to spin this Don Lemon! with your anti-Black, Uncle Tom nightly @cnn coverage! #BillCosby

Everyday @donlemon goes on air to prove he can be a bigger Uncle Tom than the day before. This is his struggle.

— Coolconnoisseur (@CoolConnoisseur) April 27, 2015
In fact, I see all tweets calling him a “nigger” are from black people, none from white people.
Don Lemon is what they used to call a "House Nigger". #FuckDonLemon
— Elija Price (@ZeusCarver) April 30, 2015
I guarantee you Don Lemon's BF's mom said to her son "What a sweet black guy you brought home." But thinking "why he bring a nigger home?"

Don Lemon is an asshole he should never refer to blacks as his people because that house nigger is definitely not for MY people

Now look none of this may mean anything, we all know how social media brings out the worst in us. But A lot of the tone of these tweets seems to be aimed at his “acting white,” when I’m pretty sure he’s a left-wing liberal. Despite this, the few times he’s come out and told the black community to pull up their pants was enough for him to be shunned forever. At least on Twitter.
