The criticism continues to pour in on social media. Following Kanye West’s rant at the White House, fellow celebs have been slamming the rapper, but perhaps this new diss stings the most.
CNN anchor Don Lemon said that Ye’s behavior in front of Trump in the Oval Office was ‘hard to wacth‘ and that his mother must be ‘rolling over in her grave’ because of it. Ouch!
Don was simply sickened by the whole ten minutes long speech and could not even wait until his own CNN show to talk about it.
That being said, he told Wolf Blitzer: ‘Listen, I have zero animosity for Kanye West. I am just going to be honest and I may get in a lot of trouble for it. I feel bad for him actually. What I saw today was a minstrel show.’
He went on: ‘Him in front of all of those white people, mostly white, embarrassing himself and Americans, but mostly embarrassing African-Americans, because every one of them is sitting at home or with their phones, watching this, cringing.’
‘I could not even watch it. I had to turn the TV off because it was just so hard to watch.’
Don Lemon also claimed that it was obvious Donald Trump is ‘using and exploiting’ Kanye, who obviously ‘needs help.’
The man wishes the whole thing would have been kept private at least.
‘We need to take all the cameras away from Kanye West and from a lot of this craziness that happens at the White House because it’s not normal and we need to stop just sitting here and pretending that it is normal. This was a huge embarrassment. Kanye’s mother’s rolling over in her grave.’
