Twitter Responds to Dr. Umar Johnson Appearance on The Breakfast Club


Many people on Twitter reacted strongly against the most recent appearance of Dr. Umar Johnson on the nationally syndicated morning radio show The Breakfast Club. The show seems to have been the one platform that has gotten Johnson the attention he so desperately seeks. It speaks to the power that show headed up by Charlamagne, DJ Envy, and Angela Yee has in urban radio and social media. After his appearance perhaps the one thing that irked many was the statement Johnson made regarding the official languages in South Africa. Then came his statement on inter-racial marriage.
