The already bonkers LGBT town hall went wild when a black trans woman named Blossom C. Brown rushed a questioner from the audience, stole the mic, accused CNN of erasing black trans women, demanded people “Google” her, and almost climbed on stage.
Moderator Don Lemon was in the middle of conducting the town hall for former Congressman and 2020 long-shot candidate Robert O’Rourke (D-TX) when he wanted to take a question from Lizette Trujillo, a mother with a young transgender son.
Just as Trujillo began to preface her question, Brown ran up to snatch the mic as if she was Kanye West interrupting Taylor Swift:
LIZETTE TRUJILLO: Hi, I just want to take a moment, before I ask my question, to validate the pain of our transgender siblings that demonstrated earlier and that have spoken up--
[Yelling off camera]
--especially black trans women.
BLOSSOM C. BROWN: I’m so sorry, I don’t want to take this away from you! But, let me tell you something!
“Black trans women are being killed in this country and CNN you have erased black trans women for the last time,” the Brown screeched. “Let me tell you something. Black trans women are dying! Our lives matter! I am an extraordinary black trans woman, and I deserve to be here! My black trans sisters that are here! I am tired! I am so tired of -- it's not just my black trans women!”
