THREAD: On @CNNTonight, Terry Crews explained to host @donlemon why he was rightly critical of the Black Lives Matter organization. "It was almost a supremist move where they viewed that their black lives mattered a lot more than mine." But lemon got combative real quick
Lemon followed up by trying to lecture Crew on the Civil Rights movement, but that didn't go too well for him.
After Crews argued that the BLM organization wasn't taking a stand against black-on-black crime, Lemon claimed that denouncing that crime and police brutality was "apples and oranges," and not in line with the mission of BLM (more on his point coming up).
Growing increasingly indignant, Lemon tells Crews that BLM should NOT care about black-on-black crime since it's not in their mission, and tells his guest to start that organization himself. He also compared it to saying "cancer matters" and people asking 'what about HIV?'
As the interview closed, Crews agreed that police brutality was important, but said the leaders of BLM had more to their agenda and they needed to be grilled on it. Crews was also concerned that he, in general, wasn't being allowed to speak in the broader discussion as an equal.
