CNN’s Don Lemon is accused of sexually assaulting another man in a New York bar in 2018.
The case has been embroiled in a long legal battle but it looks like it’s finally headed to court in early 2022.
You won’t hear about this on CNN.
FOX News reports:
Sexually charged assault suit against CNN’s Don Lemon expected to land in court after prolonged legal process
Chris Cuomo isn’t the only high-profile CNN host accused of inappropriate touching.
The attorney for the man who accused fellow CNN host Don Lemon of a sexually charged assault expects the case to finally end up in court early next year after a prolonged legal process.
It’s been over two years since Dustin Hice filed an explosive lawsuit against Lemon – who is openly gay – accusing the “CNN Tonight” host of assault and battery at a bar on New York’s Long Island during the summer of 2018.
“[Lemon] 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 into Plaintiff’s mustache and under Plaintiff’s nose,” according to the lawsuit, filed Aug. 11, 2019 in Suffolk County Court.
“Lemon intensely pushed his fingers against Plaintiff’s face under Plaintiff’s nose, forcing Plaintiff’s head thrust backward as Defendant repeatedly asked Plaintiff ‘Do you like p—y or d–k?’ While saying this, Mr. Lemon continued to shove his fingers into Plaintiff’s face with aggression and hostility,” the suit alleged.

What happens if Lemon is found guilty? Will he keep his job at CNN? Probably.
