CNN Defends Don Lemon Amid Sexual Assault Allegations
What ever happened to #metoo? Or do the rules change when it’s two guys?
A man is suing Don Lemon, claiming the CNN host attacked him at a Hamptons bar last summer.
Rather than wait for an investigation, CNN jumped to the side of their poster-boy for “diversity”, claiming that the accuser was motivated by his dislike of the network.
“The plaintiff in this lawsuit has previously displayed a pattern of contempt for CNN on his social media accounts,” a spokesperson said in a statement. “This claim follows his unsuccessful threats and demands for an exorbitant amount of money from Don Lemon. Don categorically denies these claims and this matter does not merit any further comment at this time.”
The plaintiff alleges that “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.”
After CNN made their statement, the attorney for the victim made a note of how ridiculous it was that they think it’s all a farce:
“The assertion that Mr. Hice would put himself through the painful process of filing a sexual assault lawsuit against his attacker all because he doesn’t like a cable TV station is ludicrous. Rather, he took down his social media accounts on the day he filed the lawsuit against Don Lemon because he’s a private citizen and wants to protect himself from CNN’s heavy-handed tactics.”
So, CNN thinks that someone would make up a lawsuit over political disagreements? That seems more like a leftist tactic…
What’s to say Don wasn’t blackout drunk, and just doesn’t remember? I mean, we’ve seen how hard he likes to party:
