CNN anchor Don Lemon and rapper Talib Kweli spent much of an interview today arguing about interview courtesy and their (lack of) interaction before they went on air. It got so heated that Kweli threatened to walk out multiple times.
The interview soon descended into a yelling match between the two over who interrupted who and who should be talking. Kweli repeatedly threatened he would walk off the set.
Above all, Kweli appeared most offended that Lemon didn’t respectfully introduce himself before they went on the air.
Lemon explained that he’s very busy and had been prepping for his broadcast and meant no disrespect.
The two continued to bicker, even as Lemon made it clear that his producers wanted to cut to commercial. They eventually made up with a handshake.
