CNN’s Don Lemon sued after alleged, sexually-charged attack on bartender in New York

Today was not a good day for CNN’s prime-time lineup.

Hot on the heels of Chris Cuomo’s violent, profanity-laced meltdown making the rounds on social media today, another CNN personality is facing trouble of his own.

Don Lemon, a CNN host whose program follows Cuomo’s in primetime, is being accused of a heinous and sickening act of assault in a New York beach bar.

We must warn you:  The language and the accusations ahead are disturbing.

Dustin Hice, the man accusing Lemon of assault, claimed that the CNN host attacked him at Sag Harbor dive bar Murf’s in July 2018. Hice, who was working at the time at another Hamptons bar, alleged that one night he went to Murf’s and recognized Lemon there. Hice offered to buy him a drink, which the CNN host declined.

Later in the night, according to Hice, Lemon approached him and his group of friends and, after putting his hand down his shorts he “vigorously rubbed his genitalia” and “shoved his index and middle fingers into [Hice’s] moustache.”

Per the claim:

“Mr. Lemon intensely pushed his fingers against Plaintiff’s face under Plaintiff’s nose, forcing Plaintiff’s head to thrust backward as Defendant repeatedly asked Plaintiff “Do you like p**sy or d**k?”. While saying this, Mr. Lemon continued to shove his fingers into Plaintiff’s face with aggression and hostility.”

Lemon has predictably denied that the attack ever took place.

Earlier today, CNN’s Chris Cuomo came under fire after a video depicted the host profanely threatening to attack someone who called him “Fredo” – a reference from the movie The Godfather.  In the clip, Cuomo can be heard telling the man that he would “throw [him] down the f***ing stairs”, among other things.
