CNN anchor Don Lemon received a series of racist, frightening death threats by a self-proclaimed white nationalist Trump supporter and they were so severe, he contacted the police.
The messages were sent to the 51-year-old “CNN Tonight” host not long after he broke down reading on the air a letter he penned to President Trump regarding his conversation with a Gold Star widow that had dominated the news cycle for more than a week.
“It was harassment and they also made a threat. The person said, ‘I will find you real soon.’ And called [Lemon] a f—ing n-word,” an NYPD spokesman said. “It’s being investigated at this time.”
“U r a pile of rotting dogshit, racist, communist, socialist, Liberal moron asshole.i will find u U will pay.ill see u real soon,” one threatening message reportedly read.
Lemon contacted the NYPD Wednesday after allegedly receiving multiple messages on Twitter, some that read:
Now it’s time to cry like a baby and get to your PC safe space. Your days are numbered.

The rest of us choose to think for ourselves, and we see you for what you are. You're preaching to the choir.

Funny u speak of role models, u didn't even know of Sgt. Johnson until now. Stop your nonsense. Our @POTUS has every right to defend himself against you all. He isn't gonna take it and we won't either. How about you call out Federica Wilson, who started this to further her career
