*HLN host Dr. Drew got heated on his show Thursday night and threatened to air test patterns in lieu of continuing after an audience member began shouting over a guest who criticized the Black Lives Matter movement.
Dr. Drew asked his guest, Breitbart reporter Alex Swoyer, why the Republicans didn’t bring up the issue during Wednesday’s debate. “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–” she began.
Suddenly an audience member shouted, “I don’t care about… foreign policy! I care about right now.”
Dr. Drew and security tried shushing her, but once Swoyer moved on to claim that Michael Brown didn’t have his hands up when he was shot by Ferguson police, the audience member began shouting again.
“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,” he repeated. “It’s a live television show, and I will go to a test pattern if I have to.”
Security guards eventually materialized and removed her from the studio.
