An actor from HBO’s critically-acclaimed show “The Wire” believes CNN is trying to start a riot in Baltimore on Friday because it’s the beginning of sweeps.
Wendell Pierce, who played Baltimore Det. William “Bunk” Moreland on the show from 2002-2008, made the claim on Twitter Thursday morning.
“CNN is trying to stir up a riot on Friday. May 1 is the beginning of sweeps!” Pierce tweeted. “They are trying to make it a self fulfilling prophesy. ITS BAIT.”
