talib kweli don lemon

Rapper Talib Kweli is on the ground in Ferguson, Missouri taking part in the protests, and if you were watching CNN this afternoon, you may have caught this very heated exchange between Kweli and CNN’s Don Lemon. The Brooklyn rapper criticized the media and CNN’s coverage of the Michael Brown protests, but things quickly descended into chaos when Lemon tried to defend CNN.

Talib Kweli made it clear to Lemon that he didn’t appreciate being cut off before making a point, and things got personal when Kweli noted that Lemon “didn’t even have the decency to greet” him before the segment. While the interview was definitely intense, the two shook hands at the end and said they were good.
