CNN anchor Don Lemon filed an aggravated harassment report with the New York Police Department on Wednesday after a Twitter user allegedly threatened to stab him “in the neck” while hurling racial slurs at him.
The tweets 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.”
The police spokesman added that the alleged harassment happened on Tuesday.
“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.
The tweets and its profile have since been deleted, but the alleged user described himself on Twitter using the handle @1jeff4trump2 as a “white nationalist conservative . pro gun anti islam anti terrorist anti leftist yes i HATE demorats,blm,antifa ,socialists. heavily armed racist.WLM.”
Lemon’s been an extremely vocal critic of Trump, just this week delivering a personal message to address the controversy with the widow of Sgt. La David Johnson.
