Don Lemon Has Been Terminated From CNN!

Don Lemon was fired from his anchor role at CNN, he announced Monday.

The news comes after Variety reported Don Lemon’s Misogyny at CNN, Exposed: Malicious Texts, Mocking Female Co-Workers and ‘Diva-Like Behavior’ over the course of his career. This year, he faced backlash over comments he made on the air at CNN.

Lemon posted the news on Twitter,

I was informed this morning by my agent that I have been terminated by CNN. I am stunned. After 17 years at CNN I would have thought that someone in management would have had the decency to tell me directly. At no time was I ever given any indication that I would not be able to continue to do the work I have loved at the network. It is clear that there are some larger issues at play. With that said, I want to thank my colleagues and the many teams I have worked with for an incredible run. They are the most talented journalists in the business, and I wish them all the best.

Don Lemon was a host on CNN from 2014 until 2023. Lemon anchored weekend news programs on local television stations in Alabama and Pennsylvania during his early days as a journalist. Lemon worked as a news correspondent for NBC on its programming, such as Today and NBC Nightly News. He joined CNN in 2006, also as a correspondent and later achieved prominence as the presenter of Don Lemon Tonight from 2014 to 2022. He most recently served as a co-host of CNN This Morning alongside Kaitlan Collins and Poppy Harlow, before his firing from CNN in 2023. Wikipedia

We wish Don Lemon the best.
