Ben Shapiro slams Don Lemon for calling royals 'racist' based on Meghan's claims: 'Racist because Lemon says so'

Don Lemon had said: 'People say we haven’t heard from the other side. What’s the other side going to say? They're going to say, 'Of course we're not racist,' or whatever. But what did they do?'

Ben Shapiro is on a roll. The commentator made no efforts to hide his sarcasm when he mocked CNN's Don Lemon for his comments on calling the royal family "racist." In a TV interview earlier, Lemon voiced his thoughts on Meghan Markle's royal rumble. "People say we haven’t heard from the other side. What’s the other side going to say? They're going to say, 'Of course we're not racist,' or whatever. But what did they do?" he opined.

"Think about their actions. They did not stand up for their own because their own was married to a Black woman, had a Black child. They didn't listen to him inside the Royal Family, they let him go, they let him leave the country, they wouldn’t come to terms with what they wanted to do. So, listen, we have only heard from one side, but that one side at this point rings very true."

The comment earned some harsh criticism from Shapiro who mocked Lemon in his tweet. "Journalisming Expert Don Lemon of the Very Reliable Source CNN says that we don't need to hear the other side of the story from members of the royal family accused of racism, because they're clearly and obviously racist because Don Lemon says so," he tweeted.



 

 

Reactions to Shapiro's slam of Lemon were mixed. Lemon's approach as a journalist was being questioned by one segment of the crowd. "Imagine being an anchor of a news station and saying we don't need to hear both sides of the story, that is ridiculous," read a tweet supporting Shapiro. "Does anybody really care what @DonLemon says?" read another tweet. Some even labeled Lemon as racist. "Just like Don “sour” Lemon was so quick to accuse Trump supporters for attacking smollett. We all know how that story turned out. Lemon is always waiting frantically for a racist story to put his nonsense in."

"Don lemon is the most racist person I know on tv. All he does is preach about race to everyone. Everything is about race to him. He’s got some sort of superiority complex or something? He should watch that.... it can lead to extremist behavior," seconded another.

The other end, naturally sided with Lemon, "Why do you need to hear from them, Ben? Nothing is stopping members of the British Royal Family from giving their own interviews, Ben. And your jealousy of Don Lemon’s good looks is hilarious," a tweet read. "Don Lemon is as racist as it gets. Spews fear. Tells you who to be afraid of. Tells you who's the bad guy is. And most annoyingly, basks in the glow of the bullshit he preaches." "I guess Ben forget what colonialism is," said another. "Ironically, you categorically reject one side that we have heard from. I don't agree with ignoring the side of the royal family, but this is strange take from someone demonizing those speaking out.," stated another user. "Obviously, we are taking anyone with more opinion than facts too seriously Sadly, this includes you," said another slamming Ben
