Don Lemon Moves On With His Life
Don Lemon’s surprise appearance at the Time 100 Gala in New York was his first public appearance since being let go by CNN. It opened Separately plans and reflected on his departure from the news network.
Lemon said, “You’re more worried about me than I am.” Life doesn’t stop. That’s behind me, we’ll see what happens. I don’t regret my life and whatever I did, I did, it was mine. I don’t look back and I don’t want to change the past… Continue.”
He said he was a survivor
According to the report Separately, Lemon shared that he is very “excited for the new chapter.” He added: “I think life is short and whatever life gives you, you have to bob and weave and do.”
The news anchor talked about moments when life happened to him, such as the death of his sister and his father’s terminal diabetes. She said: “So a lot of unexpected things come your way, but I’m a survivor. I come from a strong, strong Louisiana tribe with a lot of people rooting for me and people who love me.”
Lemon said that with his newfound freedom, he plans to spend the summer “at the beach and on the boat and with my family.” He revealed that he’s just going to take a break and see what happens next in his life, mostly because he’s “lucky enough to be in a position where I can do that.”
Don Lemon’s firing from CNN was a surprise
Lemon shocked his fans on Monday when he announced on Twitter that he had been fired from CNN. The former anchor claimed in her tweet that the network only informed her agent. He wrote: “After 17 years at CNN, I would have thought someone in management would have had the decency to tell me directly.”
Shortly after Lemon tweeted, CNN responded with a tweet of their own, saying his version of events was “inaccurate.” Their tweet read: “Don Lemon’s statement about this morning’s events is inaccurate. He was offered an opportunity to meet with management, but released a statement on Twitter.
Don Lemon was called out for making a sexist comment
Lemon’s firing from CNN has been linked to his spat with Republican presidential candidate Nikki Haley. The host noted that Haley was “beyond her age” while discussing how the age of politicians affects their ability to lead.
When she commented, lemon was in a segment with Kaitlan Collins and Poppy Harlow. He said: “He says…politicians are not in their prime. Nikki Haley is not in her prime. I’m sorry. A woman is considered to be in her prime in her 20s, 30s, maybe 40s.”
The comments were met with immediate backlash on social media, prompting Lemon to do so he will apologize soon. He wrote on Twitter, “This morning’s reference to women’s ‘primacy’ was contrived and irrelevant, as my colleagues and loved ones have pointed out, and I regret it.
Lemon was subsequently absent from three CNN broadcasts. The network’s president, Chris Licht, notified CNN employees that Lemon would be receiving training after having a “frank and meaningful conversation” with network executives.
