Gregg Jarrett Calls Don Lemon ‘Pompous, Pretentious Jerk,’ Lemon Responds ‘Old Man’

Fox News anchor Gregg Jarrett‘s five month twitter silence ended sharply this afternoon with a tirade aimed at CNN’s Don Lemon‘s impassioned reaction to the Michael Dunn verdict yesterday.

As news broke of a verdict on four of five counts in the Jordan Davis murder case, Lemon said he was “pissed” at the “ridiculous” fact that a jury couldn’t come to a consensus on whether Dunn was guilty of  ”murdering a teenager because his music was too damn loud.”

The jury ultimately found Dunn guilty on four counts—including second degree murder—but a mistrial was declared on the first degree murder charge.

Apparently, Jarrett—who covered murder trials at Court TV for years—didn’t like Lemon’s take.

Lemon has responded, tweeting at Mediaite.com: “Wow, someone is suffering from a bad case of the Michael Dunns. Guess my tv’s too loud…Mind your business old man.”
