Lemon asked Crews about his tweet, asking him why he felt like he will “die on this hill” as he described.
Crews criticized BLM leaders and said:
“There are some very militant type forces in Black Lives Matter and what I was issuing was a warning. I’ve been a part of different groups and you see how extremes can really go far and go wild. When a warning is seen as detrimental to the movement, how can you ever have checks and balances?”
Lemon fired back at Crews on a point he made about black on black violence and what that has to do with equality. Lemon noted that Black Lives Matters’ focus is on systemic racism and police brutality.
