Lemonis responds to backlash in Facebook Live video

Camping World Holdings President and CEO Marcus Lemonis has responded to the backlash of a CNBC interview where he gave his opinion about the violence that occurred in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Lemonis, who also hosts “The Profit” on CNBC, said he had received widespread criticism and death threats based on what he said during this interview.

The Camping World CEO emphasized in a Facebook Live post yesterday that he’s “not in favor of violence and not in favor of hatred.” He adds he “thinks it’s time that everybody get on the same page.”

  1. I heard very clearly what Marcus Lemonis said…My husband and I are Trump supporters and we are not welcome in Camping World or using the services of Good Sam… all of which we spend thousands!
    We are soon retiring and looking to switch from a gas coach to a diesel… We currently have a class A winnebago Adventurer… love the Winnebago product and looking at the diesel line for future purchase… the problem for us is Camping World is the dealer in our area for a Winnebago… since Mr. Lemonis doesn’t want our business …lucky for us we also love the Tiffin line…which is NOT sold at Camping World…
    We heard you Marcus Lemonis and We also listened and heard Our President…now your going to hear us!

  2. Hard to believe that a “smart” educated public executive would say such a dumb thing. We both supported Donald Trump for President after 8 years of generally failed policy and Obama Care. I have taken the Marcus comments to heart and will not darken Camping World again. Besides… I am clearly not welcome.

  3. Lemonis is also a known supporter of George Soros and those of you that know of Soros, he is out to destroy this country. Lemonis is out to destroy american businesses and one by one he is buying them out of closing stores. Soros strategy.
