On 6 June 2017, Lisa was invited for the interview at the Fox News to discuss the black lives matter where she defended the black people by racially accusing the white people. She stated:
"You white people are angry because you couldn't use your 'white privilege' card to get invited,"
However, after the negative response from the audience, she further explained that she did not address all the white people and added that all white people are not racist.
She was even suspended from her position as Adjunct Professor at Essex County College in Newark which was reasons because of the fear and the concern expressed by the students and the teachers.
The college made her suspension claiming she associated herself to the college while making comment. But Lisa denied the allegations stating that she was referring to herself not college while commenting.
Also, she expressed her view that she had a right to speech and she was exercising only that.
