CNN’s Don Lemon Being Sued over Alleged Sex Assault Involving a Drink, Shorts and a Mustache

Published

on

CNN’s Don Lemon is reportedly being sued in Suffolk County by a man who claims that Lemon sexually assaulted him last summer at a Sag Harbor bar.

Dustin Hice, the plaintiff in the lawsuit, claims that Lemon assaulted him in July 2018 after he offered to buy Lemon a drink at the bar and Lemon declined.

According to the lawsuit, which was obtained by Mediaite, Lemon approached Hice later that night “and, after putting his hand down his shorts he ‘vigorously rubbed his genitalia’ and ‘shoved his index and middle fingers into [Hice’s] mustache.'”

“Mr. Lemon intensely pushed his fingers against Plaintiff’s face under Plaintiff’s nose, forcing Plaintiff’s head to thrust backward as Defendant repeatedly asked Plaintiff, ‘Do you like p**sy or d*ck?'” the lawsuit states. “While saying this, Mr. Lemon continued to shove his fingers into Plaintiff’s face with aggression and hostility.”

CNN responded to the lawsuit with the following statement: “The plaintiff in this lawsuit has previously displayed a pattern of contempt for CNN on his social media accounts. 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.”

Mediaite added that Hice reportedly demanded $1.5 million from Lemon before he filed the lawsuit and that Hice is seeking damages for emotional pain and suffering after he claimed that the alleged assault left him with “feelings of shame, humiliation, anxiety, anger, and guilt.”

The lawsuit is just the latest public relations incident that CNN is having to contend with this week as a video of CNN’s Chris Cuomo went viral on Tuesday night that showed him threatening to throw a man down a flight of stairs after the man called him “Fredo.”

“I thought that’s who you were,” the man told to Cuomo.

“No, punk-a** b****es from the Right call me Fredo,” Cuomo responded. “My name is Chris Cuomo, I’m an anchor on CNN.”

“Fredo is from ‘The Godfather,’ he was that weak brother and they’re using it as an Italian aspersion,” Cuomo continued. “It’s like the ‘n-word’ for us.”

Cuomo later said, “You’re going to have a f***ing problem.”

The man responded, “What are you going to do about it?”

Cuomo responded: “I’ll f***ing ruin your shit. I’ll f***ing throw you down these stairs like a f***ing punk.”

The video garnered national attention with President Donald Trump weighing in on it, tweeting: “I thought Chris was Fredo also. The truth hurts. Totally lost it! Low ratings @CNN”

A version of this story appears on the Daily Wire website.

    How many times did Cuomo say the word Fredo? It had to be 20 times.
    It would seem to me that CC in taking steroidal drugs. He should be way more professional and calm to stand up to name calling.
    The gracious thing in name calling is simply say thank you.
    I wonder it it has dawned on Mr. Cuomo that his name calling on CNN to the President and the voters is also uncalled for.
    If you can’t take it, maybe you shouldn’t give it.
    And get of the aggression causing drugs.
    This episode doesn’t display a grown up.

  • William Glenn Munson says:

    HA HA HA chickens coming home to Roost you may be next Al Sharpton

  • Judy Stinger says:

    That’s totally believable. Lemon is so overbearing, obnoxious and narcissistic on his own program this is not hard to believe that he would be totally out of control when off-camera. What goes around comes around and Lemon is long overdue to be held accountable. No big surprise that CNN is defending Lemon and are attacking Dustin Hice the plaintive and victim of Lemon. Great week for CNN because Cuomo went off the rails and threatened someone who called him Fredo. Truth be told that’s exactly how he acts and is. He’s a total ineffectual loser who has no honesty, relevance, decency, credibility, ethics, integrity, humanity and morality. Clearly the criteria for CNN to hire someone is that they have to be totally worthless like Lemon and Cuomo.

    This is the darling of the left, he will not be in any trouble fear or not he can say whatever he wants first stop because he’s a pretty blackeye and secondly is because he’s a communist leftist!

  • chris says:

    Pity Cuomo wasn’t an ” anchor “, ……..on a ship!!!!

  • Disregard says:

    I really can’t comment as I havent watched CNN since March 3, 1993 when I returned from Germany. Only a mentally disturbed person would believe anything from CNN.

    • antilib says:

      I, too, haven’t watched since 1993 when CNN was waiting for the SEALS landing on the beach in Somalia, leading to the Blackhawk Down fiasco. I watched from my billits in Ft Hood, furious at the lengths they’d go to for any story, especially one to disparage the United States.

        Thanks for your service brother, but it’s got worse look at our two Congress Woman who routinely make hateful statements against America.

  • Thelastpresident says:

    The screenwriter of the political screenplay titled; “The Last President” also believes that Chris Cuomo is Fredo.

  • dick nergz says:

    Nelson Muntz; HA HA! Ssssooooo, I remember, that once upon a time just a few months ago, that we were told to believe the women for their accussations of the men that had molested them. So, given that, we should believe what this person said. HANG HIM!!!! HANG THE FAGGOT, i mean, homosexual predator. how many more young innocent men has this over bearing predator used people for his own gain? just wait, more will come out and tell their story, and when they do, we shall follow the worms!

  • Jim says:

    Who cares about DON LEMON, he’s just another dirty queer. People like that, make my skin craw. He, even more so.

  • Dragonfly43 says:

    Cuomo…Forever known as Fredo. Lemon…forever known as Sour Crotch!

  • William says:

    The leftists are all deranged. Don Lemon is a special kind of a-hole. How he remains on the air is baffling. Cuomo fits right in with the CNN crew.

  • Kevin says:

    Lemon should be bitch slapped.

  • DADDY K says:

    GUILTY until he proves himself innocent. You just have to believe the accuser PLUS Don Lemon is such a racist and a pukeface. GUILTY. Admit it, FREDO, admit it.

  • george peters says:

    always thought he looked faggy, now we know for sure.

  • helga says:

    Don Lemon spreads nothing but lies and hatred. He should be gone from the news.

  • Right Wing Rita says:

    lmao

  • Right Wing Rita says:

    CNN needs an enema

  • Richard says:

    Fredo seems much more reasonable in person than he does on TV!

  • Thom says:

    Well I looked in the Dictionary for Fredo and it said, “useless piss ant” and “also see Chris Cuomo”. I checked Lemon, it said “Lemon, Don, the fruit that sucks back”. Go figure!
