Following the release of body camera footage showing the police shooting of 13-year-old Adam Toledo in the early morning hours of March 29 in Chicago, on CNN Tonight With Don Lemon Thursday, Lemon came to the defense of the officer involved. In the video, the officer is chasing Toledo down an alley, yelling for the teenager to stop, and to drop his weapon. In the video, Toledo appears to be carrying a gun, much like the one found just feet away following the shooting. As the Derek Chauvin trial nears an end for the killing of George Floyd, and protests continue over the police killing of Daunte Wright, Lemon came to the defense of the Chicago officer as he doesn’t believe this incident belongs in the same category as the others. Speaking to Chris Cuomo during the hand-off between shows, Lemon said, “This is tough, Chris, because, you know, not all police shootings are equal.” He soon added, “If someone's running with a gun and they turn around, police officers have to make decisions in split seconds. That's why I'm not a police officer, because I couldn't face that kind of pressure, and I just, quite frankly, don't believe that I could do the job.”

But, their discussion was quickly sidetracked by Anderson’s new facial hair. In an attempt to share a Greenland experience of his own, the typically clean-shaven Cooper asked Conan if he used a “shigloo” bathroom during his travels throughout the Danish country. Conan jokingly responded, “Are you okay, Anderson? Is it the beard? What’s going on with you? Are you having a breakdown of some kind? Conan continued to tease the CNN anchor about his beard. “You look like a very tidy wizard, joked Conan, adding, “It looks like you briefly dipped your chin into a sugar bowl.” Anderson credited his recent nine-day vacation for the beard growth while citing fellow CNN anchor, Wolf Blitzer for the inspiration. “I call it the Blitzer beard challenge,” said Cooper. Meanwhile, on Twitter, viewers had a field day responding to the Silver Fox's new look. Unfortunately for Anderson, some of those viewers weren’t as receptive as Conan.
