Later on "NewDay," CNN's Don Lemon spoke to Bill Simon, President & CEO of Walmart, and asked him about these protests. He responded:
"Black Friday... millions and millions of people out shopping is the big stage, and Walmart's a big player on the big stage. And as there are those that want to change a service industry like retail, it's not unexpected that they would be out on Black Friday at Walmart with something to say about that."
