Lovely Black Woman Interrupts CNN Anchor @DONLEMON in Charleston
‘White people are terrorists!’ Heckler yells at CNN during live broadcast in Charleston, calls Don Lemon an Uncle Tom
A female heckler in Charleston blasted Don Lemon as an “Uncle Tom” live on CNN as she went on a rant while the network broadcast near the site of Wednesday’s massacre at the Emanuel AME Church.
“It is not a hate crime, it is a terrorist attack,” the black bystander yelled out as CNN’s John Berman conducted an interview in downtown Charleston, S.C. “White people are terrorists!”
Berman, who is white, eventually welcomed in his black colleague Lemon, who tried to play off the heckler by describing her as “a friend” as he came into the live shot.
But the woman, wearing sunglasses and a black T-shirt, continued to berate the reporters as they tried to speak over the ruckus.
“Don, are you angry? Are you angry, Don?” she repeated several times as the reporters tried to ignore her. “Uncle Tom, hello?”
Berman at that point turned to stare at the woman, who kept yelling as Lemon continued to try and report.
“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.
