Marc Lamont Hill is at it again.

On Tuesday night, a man in a San Antonio, Texas Whataburger stole a boy’s MAGA hat and then tossed his drink on the group of Trump-supporting teens.

“You ain’t supporting s*it, n******,” the man told the teens after he threw his drink on them.

TMZ staffer Van Lathan seemed to defend the man’s behavior in a Thursday tweet, writing, “Wish I could take the high road. But your MAGA hat reads like a swastika to me.”


Marc Lamont Hill, a CNN commentator and professor at Temple University, responded to the tweet with three crying laughing emojis.

Lamont Hill attempted to clarify his remarks in a follow-up tweet, while still implying that wearing a MAGA hat is tantamount to a Nazi armband and inevitably will invite assault.
