The CNN curse continues… I mean, maybe there is a curse in the network itself, after Chris Coumo here comes Don Lemon…
After Chris Cuomo being indicted of sexual harassment by a former producer where the Gateway Pundit reported previously, “CNN’s Chris Cuomo was accused of sexually harassing a female producer at a work party in 2005 in front of her husband!”
In a New York Times opinion piece, Shelley Ross, the former executive producer at ABC News revealed Chris Cuomo grabbed her butt without her permission.
“At the time, I was the executive producer of an ABC entertainment special, but I was Mr. Cuomo’s executive producer at ‘Primetime Live’ just before that,” she wrote. “I was at the party with my husband, who sat behind me on an ottoman sipping his Diet Coke as I spoke with work friends. When Mr. Cuomo entered the Upper West Side bar, he walked toward me and greeted me with a strong bear hug while lowering one hand to firmly grab and squeeze the cheek of my buttock.”
Shelley Ross said Cuomo was very arrogant when she told him to keep his paws off of her.
“’ I can do this now that you’re no longer my boss,’” he said to me with a kind of cocky arrogance. “’ No you can’t,’” I said, pushing him off me at the chest while stepping back, revealing my husband, who had seen the entire episode at close range. We quickly left.”
In June 2005, Cuomo sent Shelley Ross an email saying he was ashamed of what he did.
And now, another CNN host/anchor has been investigated for sexual assault, Don Lemon which the case is already heading to court over the two long years after it was filed.
Fox News reported that “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.
Certainly, Lemon denied all allegations and issued the following statement through a CNN spokesperson:
“The plaintiff in this lawsuit has previously displayed a pattern of contempt for CNN on his social media accounts,” it reads. “This claim follows his unsuccessful threats and demands for an exorbitant amount of money from Don Lemon.”
It was said that Lemon refused to payout where Hice demanded $1.5 million in exchange before filing the lawsuit but sure did it was continued, The official lawsuit states that Hice has continued to “suffer emotionally, mentally, and personally” due to the assault.
