“Nerd prom” was appalled by CNN’s Don Lemon‘s behavior…
In attendance at Saturday night’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner, Lemon proved that he can not only can a joke, but can dish it out as well.
The CNN host’s reaction to host Larry Wilmore calling him an “alleged journalist” took the Internet by storm — after a hearty laugh at the jest, Lemon flipped Wilmore the bird.

Lemon was sure to go the extra mile after the dinner to let folks know there was no animosity in his one finger salute:
