So Have You Seen Don Lemon’s New Haircut Yet?

September 4, 2013  |  

Thank you Don Lemon, this is just the type of thing one wishes for on a semi-slow news day.

Somewhere in the midst of shaming black people and all the things we don’t do and need to do, Don Lemon made an attempt to be down again with a haircut cerca Kid N’ Play in the 1980s. I wish I could tell you what was going through Don’s mind when he made the trip to his local barber and asked for a cut more befitting of an 18-year-old than a 47-year-old CNN News Anchor (he looks good for his age doesn’t he?!) , but he appears to be proud of it. When Don tweeted the pic above of his new hair do, he wrote:

New haircut. Too long for TV news? I kinda like it. #HarlemBarbers

Oh, and if you think the front is amusing, check out the back.


OK, OK. It’s not that bad, although again, still not sure what brought this on. We can thank Don Lemon for what he brought on himself though. No less than 32 seconds after he posted these pics did #BlackTwitter have its way with him by means of the hashtag #donlemonlookslike. You know once we get started we can’t be stopped, which is why the hashtag eventually started trending with these shade moments which happen to be my personal faves.

Don took it all in stride when he saw he was trending, responding to the hooplah saying:

Woke up to #DonLemonLooksLike trending. REALLY #blacktwitter? Can a brother just get a haircut?!


So now you’re a brotha? Oh

Don’s gon’ learn today! What do you think of his new cut?
