Don Lemon is back at it again, voicing his opinions as a news anchor. The gay news anchor lost much respect for his opinionated bashing on President Donald Trump, and throwing his opinions on subjects important to him. Now, Lemon is providing his opinion on protest happening across America launched off of police brutality with the recent death of another black man.
Lemon used CNN’s airwaves to blast Hollywood and influential people for not coming to speak on the important issue of police brutality. Lemon reveals he wish to have many people of power and influence on his show, but they are refusing due to the worry of their pocket. He says:
“A lot of people I asked to come on this show to talk about this, wealthy celebrities, wealthy political people, ‘I can’t do it, I’m mad, I don’t want people to see me mad it might hurt my business. I’m so upset I had to go to my country house. “Where are you? Why aren’t you fighting for these young people?”
“If you are a millionaire or a gazillionaire or a movie star or a politician and you don’t step up now, when are you going to do it?” he asked. “What are you worried about if you have made a gazillion dollars, you are rich and you are established, why are you afraid of what someone else is going to think about you or your anger?”
Lemon continued in saying:
“I want to see every white person of power, influence and wealth out here fighting for this cause and for young people,” he continued. “Every black person of wealth and power and substance out here fighting for these young people. I’m not talking about the people who are out here looting and causing this, but for the young kids who are doing the right thing.”
And he didn’t stop there, the guy started calling out people whom he feels should speak out on the protest happening all across the country, saying:
“I want to see you Tracee Ellis Ross, I want to see you Tyler Perry. I want to see you Drake. I want to see you, my friend Anthony Anderson. I love you, I love all of you, I want to see you doing this,” he said. “I want to see you Diddy. I want to see you Jane Fonda, who I love and respect. Do something, help change racism in this country.”
