Today in “Don Lemon is so obviously trolling Black America news,” the CNN anchor was asked about his opinion on the now viral smack down Samuel L. Jackson put on KTLA entertainment reporter Sam Ruin after Rubin mistook the A Time to Kill star for Lawrence Fishburne.
During Jackson and Rubin’s awkwardly awesome interview, Jackson told the reporter, “We may be all Black and famous, but we don’t look alike!”
Well, Sam Jackson, Don Lemon thinks you’re kinda wrong.
“When someone is in our tribe, I think it’s particularly easier for us to tell them apart, because we’re used to their facial features,” Lemon explained on “Outfront with Erin Burnett.”
He continued: “Let’s be honest, I’m probably going to get in trouble here –people do look alike! There are features that African Americans have that are similar! There are features that white people have that are similar! Features that Hispanic people have that are similar!”
While Lemon said he understands how someone can confuse members of the same ethnic group, he admits Rubin should have know who Jackson was.
Why? He’s Samuel L. Jackson!
And, let’s be clear, they look nothing alike.
“Someone’s who’s made over 70 movies, you probably should know their name by now,” Lemon said.
