DON LEMON SPEAKS TO 'THE VIEW' ON HOMOPHOBIA IN BLACK COMMUNITY & KEVIN HART'S APOLOGY
Don Lemon On The View
Don Lemon on homophobia in the black community and his call with Kevin Hart after discussing the controversy publicly.
"I felt that I had to speak for my group, my people or nobody else was going to," the CNN anchor explains why he initially spoke out about the Kevin Hart controversy: "I needed [Kevin Hart] and society to see sort of the error of our ways when it comes to homophobia in our society."
"He said 'I'm sorry, I apologize.' He did it in his way and we can't bully people." Lemon discusses his call with Kevin Hart after speaking out about the controversy, and Hart's apology days later: "If he doesn't want to be an ally for the gay community, that's his prerogative. But it is missing an opportunity I think sometimes."
