This is awkward

Don Lemon asked a Muslim lawyer if he supports ISIS

CNN's Don Lemon is no stranger to saying the exact wrong thing on air. So maybe it shouldn't come as a shocker that he fumbled an interview Wednesday night with a Muslim human rights lawyer.

Lemon had Arsalan Iftikhar on for a segment asking if radical Islam could be connected to the deadly Charlie Hebdo attack. He proceeded to ask a patient Iftikhar if he personally supports ISIS.

"16 percent of French citizens support ISIS. Would you describe those who support ISIS as Islamic extremists?" Lemon asked. "Do you support ISIS?"

Iftikhar's response: "Wait, did you just ask if I support ISIS?"
