Black Lives Matter movement targets Dr Drew show over Alex Swoyer comments: ‘I don’t care about foreign policy’

HLN host Dr. Drew angrily threatened to shut down his show Thursday night after a heckler started shouting over one of his guests who criticized the Black Lives Matter movement and clarified the depiction of Michael Brown. Check out the clip below.

Dr. Drew asked his guest Breitbart reporter Alex Swoyer why the Republicans didn’t bring up the issue of Black Lives Matter and protests during the debate after remarks from a woman in the audience.

“Well, I think that the focus of yesterday’s debate was Hugh Hewitt, who is known to be [big on] foreign policy. I’m sure Black Lives Matter will come into the picture…”

Suddenly an audience member started shouting over her. “I don’t care about… foreign policy!” she began shouting. “I care about right now.”

Dr. Drew and security tried shushing her.

“Everybody, I’m going to shut down this TV show and go to a test pattern unless people behave themselves and behave civilly. I’m not kidding,” Dr. Drew said. “I’m not kidding,” Drew repeated. “It’s a live television show, and I will go to a test pattern if I have to.”

But after Swoyer began talking about how Michael Brown didn’t have his hands up when he was shot by Ferguson police prompting the audience member shouting again.

Security guards eventually appeared and escorted the woman out of the studio.
