There aren’t many people in pop culture whose mentions are more of a battlefield on a daily basis than Don Lemon’s. Why, exactly? A lot of reasons, but click here for a brief overview.

The popular nemesis of #BlackTwitter/Tom DuBois from The Boondocks doppleganger found himself in a tussle he wasn’t expecting as members of Ferguson’s finest pushed he and the crowd back as he attempted to report and they attempted to protest.

“Now you see why people are so upset here, because we have been here all day,” Lemon said. “We’re on national television. So imagine what they are doing to people when you don’t see on national television, the people who don’t have a voice like we do.”

As to why the cops were pushing he and the crowd backwards, Donnie Boy never received a straight answer, only there was reasons for “traffic concerns,” which I’m guessing are the David Stern/NBA equivalent of “basketball reasons.”
