TV Personalities and Celebrities should know better at this point. They should know that gone are the days where they could get away with murder or anything remotely, of a sexual nature.
But for whatever reason, some people feel they are above the law and feel they can still act indecently. CNN Host Don Lemon usually pretty nasty when it comes to his attacks on Trump and conservatives regularly.
But it according to a recent allegation politics is not where the poor behavior ends. A bartender claims that Lemon, let’s say aggressively, came on to him in a rather raunchy display.
“Dustin Hiceclaims that Lemon attacked him at Sag Harbor dive bar Murf’s in July 2018. Hice, who was working as a bartender at another Hamptons watering hole at the time, said he approached Lemon at the bar one night after recognizing him. Hice “tried to get Mr. Lemon’s attention and offered to buy Mr. Lemon a drink,” the suit claims. The CNN host declined, stating he was “just trying to have a good time.”
Later in the night, the suit says, Lemon approached Hice.
“Mr. Lemon, who was wearing a pair of shorts, sandals, and a t-shirt, 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 in Plaintiff’s mustache and under Plaintiff’s nose,” the suit says.
Hice said Lemon repeatedly shoved his fingers in his face and asked, “Do you like pussy or dick?” Hice claims he left the bar “shocked and humiliated.”
“A CNN spokesperson said Lemon “categorically denies” the allegations and claimed Hice filed the suit because he dislikes CNN. “The plaintiff in this lawsuit has previously displayed a pattern of contempt for CNN on his social media accounts,” the spokesperson added. “This claim follows his unsuccessful threats and demands for an exorbitant amount of money from Don Lemon.”
Hice’s lawyer rejected CNN’s dismissal of the lawsuit and defended his client’s social media activity. “The assertion that Mr. Hice would put himself through the painful process of filing a sexual assault lawsuit against his attacker all because he doesn’t like a cable TV station is ludicrous,” Hice’s attorney said in a statement. “Rather, he took down his social media accounts on the day he filed the lawsuit against Don Lemon because he’s a private citizen and wants to protect himself from CNN’s heavy-handed tactics.”
I guess Lemon must think pretty highly of himself if this happened. It’s bizarre he would do something like this when he constantly berates the president for his supposed poor treatment of women. At least Trump doesn’t force women to smell his stinky fingers.
