Superstar actor Terri Crews got into a heated confrontation with ultra-liberal CNN host Don Lemon over the radical left-wing group Black Lives Matter.
Crews challenged Lemon over his unwavering support for the sometimes violent group, citing black-on-black crime statistics and challenging the groups assumption that different types of Americans can’t work together for good.
As Newsweek reports:
The America’s Got Talent host appeared on Monday night’s show to discuss the backlash he has been receiving for his views on the movement, which have been heavily criticized.
On Saturday, Crews tweeted: “Are all white people bad? No. Are all black people good? No…
Crews responded: “There are some very militant type forces in Black Lives Matter and what I was issuing was a warning.” He continued: “I’ve been a part of different groups and you see how extremes can really go far and go wild. When a warning is seen as detrimental to the movement, how can you ever have checks and balances?”
He went on to criticize BLM leaders for saying they will “burn it down” if they don’t get their demands and expressed frustration at how his desire to work with white people has been criticized.
Ah, yes. BLM isn’t actually what the organization says it is—despite the group getting mega-millions from dumb corporations—let Don Lemon tell you what it is based on his feels. Glad Terry Crews pushed back. pic.twitter.com/gkqqyPfwj4
