    CNN's Don Lemon accused of assault in sexually charged encounter at New York bar

    You know if it was Fox news this would have been posted in "BREAKING" style the moment it happened, lol. I want to put a disclaimer that I found this on a site with links to many stories, lest anyone think I hang out on that site and try to send Antifa to harass me. I dont follow much MSM, but I seem to recall this guy's name in being in some other big headline(s), due to a fact it was a dictionary word. lol, that fact is what actually led to the alleged assault! If the dude is living in the Hamptons, I'm guessing he doesn't really need more money, but that could be a generalization.



    By Liam Quinn, Greg Wilson | Fox News

    CNN primetime host Don Lemon was accused of a bizarre, sexually charged assault of a bartender in New York's tony Hamptons last year in a civil suit filed earlier this week.

    Dustin Hice, of Florida, stated in the lawsuit that he was living in the Hamptons and working at The Old Stove Pub in Sagaponack during the summer of 2018. On July 15, after closing, Hice claimed he left with the owner and co-workers to party at another bar, Murf's Backstreet Tavern, in Sag Harbor, where they saw Lemon. Recognizing the newsman, Hice offered to buy him a vodka drink called a "lemon drop," according to the suit. Lemon declined the offer, Hice claimed, but later approached him inside the establishment.

    "[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 in Suffolk County Court, and first reported by Mediaite.

    Lemon allegedly asked a crude question about Hice's sexual preference, leaving him "shocked and humiliated," according to the suit.

    CNN denied Hice's account and said Hice seemed to bear animosity toward the cable news network.

    "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.

    "Don categorically denies these claims and this matter does not merit any further comment at this time."


    In the suit, Hice also said Lemon's off-screen demeanor was in stark contrast to the "Me Too" advocate who he often saw on TV.

    "When the cameras are turned off, however, Mr. Lemon’s actions are in stark and disturbing contrast to the public persona he attempts to convey," the suit reads.

    Hice denied going after CNN on social media, telling the New York Post: "I have never ever ranted about anyone, especially a news station. … I am a private, religious man."

    As much as I hate Don Lemon and dishonest dividers like him the story seems a little too out there to be believable. We'll see what happens but it could be another Blasey-Ford or E. Jean Carroll fantasy narrative.
