A black woman in Charleston put Don Lemon on blast as she called him an “Uncle Tom” live on CNN Wednesday during the network’s broadcast about Wednesday’s massacre at the Emanuel AME Church.
“It is not a hate crime, it is a terrorist attack,” the woman yelled at CNN’s John Berman. “White people are terrorists!”
When Don Lemon came into the interview, he tried to brush the woman off as a ‘friend’.
“Don, are you angry? Are you angry, Don?” she asked several times. “Uncle Tom, hello?”
As Lemon was trying to add to the story, the woman kept ranting.
“Talk about the anger, Don. The President is a puppet. Stop the lies! Stop the lies — he’s an Uncle Tom too. President Obama’s an Uncle Tom too. Uncle Tom!” she continued to scream.
As the segment came to a close, the woman got in one last rant.
“Black folk, get off your knees and stop praying!”
