*Don Lemon again found himself on the business end of irate tweets after opening his show Monday night by holding up a sign that read, “nigger.”

Hours earlier, during an appearance on anchor Ashleigh Banfield’s hour to discuss the Confederate flag’s removal from South Carolina’s statehouse grounds, Lemon had with him a prop — a real life Confederate flag he had purchased while in Charleston covering the shooting deaths of nine African Americans by a white supremacist.

He pulled the flag out again for his own show, Monday night.

“This is what America is talking about right now,” Lemon said, holding it up. “Does this offend you? It is a Confederate flag. Is it a symbol of Southern pride or a symbol of hate?”

He then proceeded to hold up the N-word sign and asked: “What about this… does this offend you? President Obama said it out loud in an interview and a lot of people are shocked.”

Twitter wasted no time going in.

The opening quickly be came a trending topic and the tweets were overwhelmingly negative:
