Don Lemon Sued for Highly Unusual Dive Bar Interview Technique
This is a bad week to be a prime-time anchor on CNN. First Fredo Cuomo went impazzire and became a national laughingstock, and now the guy he hands off to every night is accused of some pretty ballsy behavior.
A man is suing Don Lemon, claiming the CNN host attacked him at a Hamptons bar last summer...
Dustin Hice claims that Lemon attacked him at Sag Harbor dive bar Murf’s in July 2018...
“Mr. Lemon, who was wearing a pair of shorts, sandals, and a t-shirt, put his hand down the front of his own shorts, and vigorously rubbed his genitalia, removed his hand and shoved his index and middle fingers in Plaintiff’s moustache and under Plaintiff’s nose,” the suit says.
Hice said Lemon repeatedly shoved his fingers in his face and asked, “Do you like pu*sy or di*k?”
Well, keep in mind that asking questions is a big part of Don's job. And besides, what's zestier than Lemon rind?
CNN is claiming that Mr. Hice "previously displayed a pattern of contempt for CNN on his social media accounts," and that he demanded Lemon give him $1.5 million not to file the lawsuit. Which might be true, even though CNN is reporting it.
I'm not saying Lemon did what he's accused of doing, but we all know the dude can get pretty loco when he's had a few. Remember when he got hammered and did this on live TV?
That was back when Kathy Griffin on New Year's Eve was the dumbest and most annoying thing you'd see on CNN all year. Now she wouldn't even make the top 100.
Well, be strong, Don Lemon. No matter how this guy tries to squeeze you.
