So now suddenly this n —– I have to step in front of the streets and talk to these people at work Hope to do as a celebrity. Answer me: Do you want to see a celebrity right now? Do we think af *** *** what the rules are about celebrity? No, it’s speaking for itself on the streets, they don’t need me right now. I keep my mouth shut. And I’ll still keep my mouth shut. But I don’t think my silence is complicated … anyone Who wouldn’t even care what their favorite comedians think because they saw a police officer kneeling. On a man’s neck for 8 minutes and 46 seconds? “

Don Lemon woke up this morning to an avalanche of Dave Lepley’s new special text messages, emails, and phone calls. While a news anchor would be expected to get a little angry, he actually agrees with what the comedian had to say. “I really agree with Dave Chappell,” said Leman. “I think the youth who are on the streets don’t really care what we have to say in the” establishment “.”

Don Lemon continued and said, “Now, there is not a moment for Vinay,” adding that every person should do what they can from every stage. Lemon said, “Ironically, his special is called 8:46, He is talking about this issue, and I think it is very good. “Chappell used his platform and did what Lemon called him and others to do, but he just did it in his original way.

Don Lemon was not alone in being redeemed by Dave Chappell. In comparison, Candace Owens and Laura Ingraham were beyond roasted by comedians. He went to Owens and Ingram, though he still has yet to respond to criticism. When Layman was calling for unity, Owens and Ingrahm were doing the opposite, which is why they took most of the heat in the undeclared Netflix special.
