Just when you want to give CNN news anchor Don Lemon a little respect, he goes and sticks his foot in his mouth. Like deep in there.
Last night, Lemon (who’s known for making questionable comments) reported from the streets of Ferguson where people were staging protests after the grand jury’s decision not to bring charges against Darren Wilson. During the televised broadcast, he mentions, “Obviously there’s a smell of marijuana in the air.”

Of course Lemon was dragged on Twitter:
