Lemon wanted to know if this would offend viewers, and he got his answer.

Don Lemon went live on CNN to pose an important question to viewers: "Why is Don Lemon still employed by CNN?" Seriously, this guy is never in the news for a positive reason. If he isn't telling rape victims how to not get raped, he's spreading misinformation about vaccines while shirtless. But this time, he's also gone too far.
Lemon appeared live on CNN, holding up a Confederate flag and asking viewers, "Does this offend you?" Then he did the same thing with a big sign that just had the N-word on it. He wanted to know if it offended people, and guess what? It did.

A friend in cable news: "Don Lemon isn't bad at doing a good thing (journalism). He's good at doing a bad thing (cheap attention-getting)."

I'm starting to think I shouldn't have given Don Lemon carte blanche on the design of my party invitations.

What do you think? Did Don Lemon's stunt offend you? Just kidding, don't tell us. If you do, then he wins.
