Man Corroborates Sexual Assault Claim Against CNN Host Don Lemon

S E E D E D   C O N T E N T

What say you now, CNN?

Via Fox News:

The former boss of a bartender who earlier this week filed an explosive lawsuit against CNN host Don Lemon, accusing the newsman of a strange, sexually charged assault, told Fox News he witnessed the incident and corroborated his one-time employee’s claim.

In an exclusive interview, George Gounelas, who managed Dustin Hice at the Old Stove Pub in July of 2018, detailed what allegedly occurred on the night of the bizarre encounter at Murf’s Backstreet Tavern, which is located in the prestigious Hamptons area east of New York City. Gounelas is named in the suit filed by Hice.

Lemon, through CNN, has vehemently denied Hice’s allegations.

“Dustin worked for me as a bartender [and] we went out after work one night. We were standing there and he said, ‘Hey, that’s Don Lemon,’” Gounelas said. “Murf’s is a place you go to drink after you’ve been out drinking. We had just gotten off of work. So that’s why we ended up there, because we worked in the restaurant business. So by the time everything is done, we can only hit a late-night spot.”

Lemon offered a six-figure settlement before talks broke down and Hice filed the formal complaint, according to a source close to Hice's attorney.

I saw a couple interesting passages on your linked article

“Dustin was in this shock mode saying, ‘Bro, did that just happen? That was disgusting,’” Gounelas said before explaining that he didn’t think it was too unusual at the time. “The whole thing is like, I go out in the Hamptons, I live out here, I have a restaurant, I get it, people get crazy. To me, it was just another thing. To [Dustin], he was like shocked.”


"The plaintiff in this lawsuit has previously displayed a pattern of contempt for CNN on his social media accounts," a CNN spokesperson told Fox News in a statement. "This claim follows his unsuccessful threats and demands for an exorbitant amount of money from Don Lemon.

I dont have an opinion as to whether Lemon did it or not.   I dont think its a million dollar injury though. He probably should have taken the 100 grand if that was an actual offer. 

Apparently that sort of prank is not unknown in the Hamptons.

It's not a prank, it's sexual assault.

The victims friend says he wasnt surprised which means he has seen similar before. How many lawsuits do you suppose have arisen from those previous incidents? 

A punch to the face may have been an expected response, but a lawsuit?  Makes you look like you are after money.

A punch to the face

That's the guy that always gets in trouble. I don't doubt the suit is about an easy play at a deep pocket, but at least it's smarter than going to jail for punching a beloved American icon.*

*That last part is /s

If it had been a woman Lemon's career would have been over and he would have faced the full force of the law for sexual assault, society would have seen to that.

But since he did it to a guy somehow that makes it OK? WTF.

that sort of prank

is pretty weird. I've never been a fan of pranks generally, but this is gross. It's too bad it will get ignored because he did it to a guy.

Had the guy beat Don Lemon with a doll, they'd call it a hate crime. It would be 120 days of wall to wall coverage. Congress would want to legislate.

We'd need to have a national conversation. Chris Cuomo would be "feeling him" on the toss every night for a month.

So you're with sexual assault if your liberal hero's commit it?

Maybe the street vendor was out of roses? Maybe this is romance in the 21st century.

At the end of the day, I don't think anyone is going to care. The victim is male. Don Lemon is well, Don Lemon. No one is interested in defending the victim or bringing down Don.

I'm surprised no one has video.

That olde, "Smell my finger", bit is a crude joke but it is not a sexual assault...

Usually goes along with crude people, wouldn’t you say?

The all high and mighty Lemon who judges people every single night is really a prick...who could have guessed?

6.1.3  igknorantzrulz  replied to  Kathleen @6.1.2    6 months ago

i wish more didn;t have to feel too intimidated to express their true sexuality.

To each their own.

Or, were you suggesting some around here, just knock the closet wall down like the Kool Aid Pitcher

looking for a catcher, with 95 mph fast balls...

Lots of latent gay overtones in Don Lemon or is he already out?

Switch hitter perhaps?

7.1  Tacos!  replied to  Sparty On @7    6 months ago

Nothing latent about it. He's been out for years.
