Don Lemon helped Jussie Smollett spread his lies about Trump supporters. That’s a fact.
Lemon aided Smollett, because the two share common ground on their love of penises. Yes, their sexuality bonds them, as does their ethnicity.
And when it comes to fighting for Black gay rights, Lemon and Smollett show solidarity, no matter what.
Thus, Lemon tipped off Smollett when Lemon was made aware that Smollett was under investigation for lying. If Lemon were honest, he would admit to knowing that Smollett lied about that stupid attack.
In this open forum, one person wrote:
An unofficial poll conducted by Sandrarose.com reveals over 58% of Twitter users have their doubts about Smollett’s story.
Instagram.com user TJ wrote, “Jussie that was a cute story you told. Now tell us how you was up on Grinder and got lured out to get some street meat by some dudes looking to beat up a gay guy.”
CBS LA reported on a civil rights activist crying foul on Smollett’s nonsensical story:
LA-based civil rights activist Najee Ali isn’t buying Smollett’s story. On Sunday, he angrily called for the actor to be arrested and prosecuted.
“We believe he is lying about being the victim of a hate crime and being the victim of a racist attack. Instead, he puts the real victims in the LGBT community, in the black community, in jeopardy and at risk,” Ali said.
Others came to realize the hoax and were devastated.
From The Snapper:
As someone who considers themselves an intersectional feminist, a proud LGBT community member and an agent for social change, the Jussie Smollett story broke my heart. Hearing that there was a practical attempted lynching of an esteemed gay, black actor honestly made me sick to my stomach. It took a few days to process, and even longer before I was able to read more than just a headline about the situation.
At first, I commended Smollett for being so brave, going forward and telling his tale. Had he been telling the truth, the amount of guts that would have taken would have surely propelled acts of violence against LGBT members into the spotlight of mainstream media. That upward momentum would have shined a light on the situation, possibly enacting real social change.
But then, it didn’t. Smollett lied. And, by doing so, he royally messed up his chance to make a positive change in the United States.
Still, Don Lemon droned on about the Black gay condition. He continued the narrative of “Trump bad, Leftism good”, knowing the truth.
Then, a la Donna Brazile, Lemon tipped off Smollett.
Newsweek highlighted the social media backlash, whereby people demand that CNN fire Lemon.
“After Jussie Smollett’s testimony that Don Lemon tipped him off to the Chicago PD not believing his story… he should be the next to get tanked from CNN,” politico and author Tim Young posted to Twitter.

Young was joined by conservative writer and pundit, Carmine Sabia who tweeted:
“Jussie Smollett has admitted that CNN anchor Don Lemon warned him that police were suspicious of his story. CNN does not have journalists. It has activists,” conservative Carmine Sabia posted. “Time for Don Lemon to follow Chris Cuomo.”
