‘Misogynistic, Sexist POS’: CNN Insiders Trash Don Lemon After He’s Fired | Eastern North Carolina Now

    CNN insiders took aim at former CNN anchor Don Lemon after he was fired on Monday.

    Lemon was unceremoniously sacked, prompting him to issue a statement in which he complained that CNN's management did not have the "decency to tell me directly," adding that he was "stunned."

    Initially, CNN released a statement saying, "CNN and Don have parted ways. Don will forever be a part of the CNN family, and we thank him for his contributions over the past 17 years. We wish him well and will be cheering him on in his future endeavors."

    But after Lemon issued his complaint, CNN released another statement, firing, "Don Lemon's statement about this morning's events is inaccurate. He was offered an opportunity to meet with management but instead released a statement on Twitter."

    "Don was given every indication when he made the fake a** apology for his disgusting comments and, still, no one wanted anything to do with him," one source told The Daily Mail. "No one owes him anything. He should have had the decency to not be a misogynistic, sexist POS. Don truly believed he was going to always get a get out of jail free card because he is black and gay, which worked to his advantage until it couldn't."

    "It doesn't matter what color you are or what your sexuality is," the source continued. "He lost the respect of all of the women on staff, and no one wanted to work with him. Even after this, he still acted no differently and would give the women he worked with attitude because he could sense that they felt a certain way still. Good riddance and good luck getting a job elsewhere."

    Sources from CNN previously told The Daily Mail that women upset at Lemon's misogynism told management either Lemon had to go or they would. One source said, "People are hurt by his actions and are not going to let this go. It is like every woman over 50 in America has taken this as a personal insult. The female staffers at CNN definitely have. He needs to make his vacation a permanent one."

    Lemon's various denigrations of women have included suggesting to Bill Cosby sexual assault accuser Joan Tarshis that she should have bitten Cosby's penis; intimating politician Nikki Haley was past her prime because she was 51 years old as he stated "a woman is in their prime in 20s and 30s and maybe 40s," and asking panelist S.E. Cupp, whether she was suffering from "mommy brain."
