Fails Of The Week: Floyd Mayweather, Don Lemon, Joe Budden And More
August 22, 2014 - 7:24 pm
Who: Don Lemon
What: While the CNN anchor was interviewing rapper Talib Kweli about the Ferguson controversy on site, he interrupted the MC as he was trying to make a point, which led to an argument. Instead of further discussing the matter at hand, they engaged in a back and forth about how to properly hold a conversation.
Redemption: They both looked petty, but Don Lemon, when you have interviews let your guests finish their statement.
?Who: Kevin Sorbos (Hercules)
What: During a Facebook rant, Sorbos said that Michael Brown's death was an excuse for protesters "to be the losers these animals truly are." He also took shots at President Obama saying, "Hopefully this is a reminder to the African Americans that their President they voted in has only made things worse for them, not better."
Redemption: He later apologized for his harsh remarks, but we're not here for it.
Who: Joe Budden
What: The rapper is accused of dragging his ex-girlfriend out of a club and then assaulting her, both on the street and in his home.
Redemption: Joe has denied the abuse accusations, though this isn't the first time we've heard of his aggression towards women.
Who: V. Stiviano
What: In a counter lawsuit against Donald Sterling's estranged wife, Shelly, for character defamation, Stiviano is claiming that she was never involved with Sterling because the 80-year-old is gay (wait, what?).
Redemption: Put on your vizor and go have a court side seat.
