By Chris Gardner Slide 1 of 2

CNN anchor Don Lemon has snagged his own share of headlines for everything from his coming out story, a heated feud with Russell Simmons over issues of race and a social media spat with Jonah Hill. Lemon is back in the spotlight again this week, but it's fair to say that no one saw this one coming -- except for Lemon's barber. The 47-year-old debuted a new hair style on Twitter on Tuesday and the fade -- comparable to Will Smith's look on the long-running series "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" -- struck a chord with social media users, causing the hashtag #DonLemonLooksLike to trend. Various news outlets, including E! News, picked up on Lemon's new look, as did thousands of Twitter users. "Going to the barber today and asking for a @DonLemonCNN," tweeted user @BlackLarryKing.Following the rush of attention, Lemon posted a series of tweets, including, "Woke up to #DonLemonLooksLike trending. REALLY #blacktwitter?! Can a brother just get a haircut?!!" He also tweeted, "Ok. This is officially cray. It's just a haircut," with a link to the E! News article.Now it's time for you to add to the chorus of voices on social media and sound off on Lemon's new haircut below!
