Russell Simmon Don Lemon Finally Face Off on CNN [VIDEO]



Don Lemon and Russell Simmons finally came face to face and discussed Lemon's controversial critique of the black community, and Simmons' reaction to it.



Simmons, who wrote a scathing open letter to Lemon, and Lemon, who delivered a lengthy response to that open letter on the air, hashed things out in a lively interview that aired on Saturday's edition of CNN Newsroom.

It all started about a month ago, when CNN anchor Don Lemon created a stir by expounding on Fox News host Bill O'Reilly's assessment of the black community, and reaped a whirlwind ofcriticism in response. In particular, hip hop mogul Russell Simmons wrote several scathing tweets, and an open letter to Don Lemon. The heated reaction did not caused Don Lemon to shy away, as evidenced by his revisiting the topic two weeks ago, when he responded at length to his critics, and directly challenged Simmons to face him on the air.

Russell Simmons took up that challenge this week, and sat down for an interview with Lemon to hash things out.

More news... GMA3 anchors T. J. Holmes and Amy Robach have been fired by ABC after their work affair was deemed a distraction by the network. TMZ, which first reported on their departure, cites network sources who claim they will receive payouts per their contracts. ABC reportedly accused both journalists of various forms of misconduct to justify the firings.

Nick Cannon has walked away from radio for the moment and has decided to end “Nick Cannon Radio” and “Cannon’s Countdown.” The shows were distributed by Skyview Networks and quietly went away in December. He is reportedly set to make a major media announcement in two weeks. Cannon's move necessitated 94.7 The Block (WXBK-FM New York) to hire Cipha Sounds to host middays.

A woman who is believed to be DJ Akademiks' girlfriend slammed a raw egg into his face and walked off angrily as he was live streaming. That's it. Google it. Perhaps it's something that should have happened long ago.
