NFL great Herschel Walker is disgusted with Don Lemon of CNN. He’s angry because not only did Lemon allow the racist attack on Kanye West, but he did not return with an apology.
The racist CNN segment that appeared a few nights ago made its way to Herschel Walker. Don Lemon and his panel was making fun of Kanye West for his support of President Trump. After West’s visit to the White House Lemon and his buddies made fun of him and called him a “token negro.”
Walker took to twitter to express his anger:
Went to bed appalled over @donlemon despicable behavior laughing at @TaraSetmayer and @Bakari_Sellers awful remarks about Kanye West’s visit with @realDonaldTrump!! Woke up wondering why @CNN doesn’t take all three off the air?#SHAMEFUL #CNN https://t.co/MwGWIfh8so

Many conservatives are in love with Kanye. I’m not on board with that, but that said what they said about him on Kanye was way over the line. Whether Kanye took the MAGA Pill or not, this was unacceptable.
It’s great to see Walker standing his ground and demanding that CNN fire Lemon. During the segment the white man involved was clearly shocked by what was going down.
Per Fox News:
Football legend-turned-activist Herschel Walker is calling for CNN to fire Don Lemon after the “CNN Tonight” host laughed when rapper Kanye West was referred to as “the token negro of the Trump administration” during a segment that aired Tuesday night.
The segment — which has been slammed as “racist” — began with Lemon asking if President Donald Trump is simply “using Kanye as a prop to win over black voters before the midterms.”
CNN political commentator Bakari Sellers responded with a jab at West.
“Anti-intellectualism simply isn’t cool,” Sellers said. “Kanye West is what happens when Negros don’t read.”
Sellers’ remark prompted laughter from Lemon and fellow panelist Tara Setmayer, who followed up by saying West is “the token negro of the Trump administration.”
Walker, who has openly supported Trump, is also an outspoken advocate for mental health issues – which were also mocked during the segment. Walker took to Twitter to express his disbelief.
How is CNN possibly thinking this was an okay segment? It’s what they do to any black man or woman who steps off the plantation.
The good thing is the more this happens, the more black people realize they have a choice.
