    CNN Fires Back At Don Lemon After He Accuses Network Of Doing Him Dirty

    Published on

    Don Lemon, a former CNN host, threw a tantrum on Twitter after claiming that his agent informed him that he had been fired, but CNN promptly responded.

    As he disparaged his former employer, the former host implied that he believed there were additional issues at play.

    “I was informed this morning by my agent that I have been terminated by CNN. I am stunned,” the former host said. “After 17 years at CNN I would have thought 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,” he said.

    “It is clear that there are some larger issues at play,” he said before thanking his colleagues.

    However, CNN public relations contested the former host’s account of the events.

    “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,” it said.

    On his CNN morning program, the two women with whom he had conflicts briefly mentioned him before moving on.

    “We do begin, though, with news about this show. As you may have heard yesterday, CNN parted ways with anchor Don Lemon. In a statement, CNN CEO Chris Licht thanked Don for his contributions over the past 17 years, writing in part, ‘Don will forever be a part of the CNN family. We wish him well and will be cheering him on in his future endeavors.’” Poppy Harlow said.

    “Absolutely. Of course, Don was a big part of this show over the last six months. He was one of the first anchors on CNN to have me on his show. That’s something I’ll obviously never forget. I agree with Chris. We wish him the best,” Kaitlan Collins said.

    “Yeah, we certainly do. Don was one of my first friends here at CNN. I’m so thankful to have worked alongside him and for his support for nearly 15 years here, and I wish him all good things ahead. Kaitlan and I are really proud of this show. We’re so proud of the dedicated team that works around the clock to bring you the news every morning, and our priority is you, the viewer. We’re grateful you welcome us into your home each morning,” Harlow said.

    “Absolutely. Of course, this morning we want to keep it the focus on the news and where that belongs. So let’s get to it. ‘CNN This Morning’ starts right now,” Collins said.

    CNN announced on Monday that it was severing ways with Lemon, a prominent anchor who has been embroiled in controversy for years, especially in recent months.
