If you have been paying attention to the news lately you know that CNN is having a hell of a lot of problems with crappy ratings and controversies involving some of their hosts and anchors including the unhinged hate-filled melt down by Chris Cuomo.
It was insane.
The latest controversy involves the Trump bashing Don Lemon.
He is being is being sued for sexual assault.
The New York Post reports that a former Hamptons bartender is suing Don Lemon — saying the CNN host got gross and assaulted him at a local watering hole.
Dustin Hice says in his Suffolk County Supreme Court suit, which was filed over the weekend, that he was slinging drinks in July 2018 for The Old Stove Pub in Sagaponack when he and his coworkers decided to go out for drinks after work.
They headed to Murf’s Backstreet Tavern in Sag Harbor, where Hice “noticed a familiar face and realized that Mr. Lemon was also at the bar, seemingly enjoying a drink with his friends,” the lawsuit says.
“Being cordial, Plaintiff tried to get Mr. Lemon’s attention and offered to buy Mr. Lemon a drink, a ‘Lemon Drop,’ a vodka cocktail,” the papers state.
“Mr. Lemon denied Plaintiff’s offer and responded that he was ‘just trying to have a good time,’ ” the suit says.
Hice said the pair then went their separate ways at the bar again until later in the night, when Lemon came over to him and his friends.
“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 then repeatedly asked him, “Do you like p—y or d–k?” while continuing to shove his fingers in his face “with aggression and hostility.”
Calling Lemon “an Emmy Award winning news anchor … who among other things, purports to be a staunch advocate for the ‘Me Too’ movement,” Hice says in his suit, “When the cameras are turned off … Mr. Lemon’s actions are in stark and disturbing contrast to the public persona he attempts to portray.”
But Lemon was “displaying his true nature” during the incident, Hice says in his suit.
Hice said he was so traumatized that he fled the bar and came back a couple minutes later to find Lemon gone.
But, as with Chris Cuomo, CNN is standing by its Prime Time anchor in the face of tremendous pressure.
“The plaintiff in this lawsuit has previously displayed a pattern of contempt for CNN on his social media accounts.
“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,” it said. Read The Rest At Right Win Tribune
