The murder of 23-year-old Stephon Clark by Sacramento police is still fresh in the hearts and minds of his family, friends and those throughout the country who sympathize with another young, black life lost. Apparently, the grief is still too new for his brother because he appeared in an interview with Don Lemon and things did not go well.
Appearing on Don Lemon’s CNN talk show, Stevante Clark, the older brother of the slain Stephon Clark, was visibly still very emotional given the circumstances surrounding his brother’s death. Clark’s appearance didn’t go at all as planned, as he repeatedly clashed with Lemon, who was attempting to ask him about his brother, but kept getting cut off each time he spoke.
At one point early in the interview, Lemon asked Clark how he was holding up to which he responded by ringing a bell—this left Lemon visibly confused before Clark interjected by saying “next question.” Things just went downhill from there with Clark repeatedly talking off camera, telling Lemon to say his brother’s name and blasting the media coverage.
All of this prompted Lemon to cut the interview short. In response to the overly emotional encounter Lemon said, “Maybe it was just a little too soon for him to be on television. I hope his family gets justice and he’s welcome back on.”
