Liberal CNN pundit Don Lemon is no stranger to controversy. In July of this year, Lemon said that unvaccinated people should not be able to buy groceries or go to work. Lemon has also come under fire for tipping convicted hate hoaxer Jussie Smollett off about the investigation in to his false police reports. This Friday on New Years Eve, Lemon went on a drunken, politically charged rant where he said that people were angry at his success because he was an outspoken black man. The Daily Mail Reports–

CNN host Don Lemon drunkenly ranted about his ‘haters’ during the network’s live New Year’s Eve celebration stream.
“Lemon, 55, a veteran of CNN’s New Year’s Eve Live, rang in 2022 for the central time zone on Friday, hosting from New Orleans with fellow anchor Alisyn Camerota and comedian Dulce Sloan.
As the clock approached midnight, Lemon, who appeared boisterous and more outspoken than usual, ranted: ‘I don’t give a — what you think about me, what do you think about that.’
He went on to claim that people dislike him because he is a ‘successful black man’.
‘I am who I am. I’m a grown, successful black man who a lot of people hate because they’re not used to people seeing me – and people like me – in the position that I am,’ Lemon continued.
‘To be able to share what I…my point of view on television, it freaks people out. And you know what? You can kiss my behind. I do not care.
‘I don’t care. I really don’t care. I have one life and this is who I am and I feel very, um…,’ at which point Sloan finished his sentence with the word ‘blessed’.”
