Is Don Lemon Next on CNN’s Chopping Block? Accuser Details Sexual Assault Claims to Jesse Watters


Chris Cuomo is out at CNN.

Following his dismissal, Cuomo is now facing a wave of sexual assault allegations.

This has left many questioning whether CNN will take seriously some lingering sexual assault allegations against Cuomo’s buddy Don Lemon.

Dustin Hice spoke with Jesse Watters Saturday on Fox News, where he described in detail what he alleges Don Lemon did to him back in 2018.

Hice alleged that Lemon put his hands in his own pants, and then shoved his fingers under Hice’s nose.

Hice claimed that Lemon then asked him whether he likes “p or d.”

Fox News shared Hice's story last month, where Hice claimed that he had already turned down three settlement offers from Lemon:

The man who accused CNN host Don Lemon of a sexually charged assault says his pending lawsuit isn’t about money, and he can prove he isn't financially motivated because he’s turned down multiple settlement offers.

It’s been over two years since Dustin Hice filed a bombshell lawsuit against Lemon – who is openly gay – accusing the CNN host of assault and battery at a bar on New York's Long Island during the summer of 2018. The case is expected to end up in court early next year after a prolonged legal process and Hice still insists he isn’t simply looking for a payday, echoing comments he made last year – although Lemon's attorney doesn't agree.

"If this was about money, I would [have] taken any of the three separate settlement attempts he’s offered me," Hice told Fox News Digital on Tuesday.

Following Chris Cuomo's termination, and the history of accusations against Don Lemon, people are calling for CNN to finally take these allegations seriously.

The New York Post has more details on the still-lingering sexual assault allegations against Don Lemon, which Hice also detailed on “The Megyn Kelly Show” last month:

Accuser Dustin Hice made the comments on Monday’s “The Megyn Kelly Show” even as Lemon’s attorneys have fought back against Hice’s lawsuit in court filings, accusing the ex-bartender of withholding texts, deleting social media posts and hiding a witness who contradicted his claims.

Hice claimed in his suit that Lemon had put his hand down his own pants, rubbed his private parts and then shoved his fingers into Hice’s face.

“Anybody that acts like that in public without any fear of what it might do to somebody or the consequences it might have, that’s a pattern,” Hice told host Megyn Kelly after she asked if it seemed that was something he had done before.

“I wouldn’t be surprised,” Hice added. “He’s protected by the fact that he’s African American, gay man on television and I’m just some nobody.”
