Don Lemon reacts to being fired by CNN after 17 years on the network
Rick Ross has weighed in on CNN’s decision to fire Don Lemon via on Instagram Story.
Don Lemon, the controversial anchor of CNN on Monday Morning (April 24), it was announced that he’s been fired from the cable news network.
In a statement, Don Lemon said he was "stunned" to hear the news from his agent on Monday, adding that "larger issues" were at play in the decision.
The news, which followed mere minutes after word that Tucker Carlson and Fox News had parted ways, was first announced early Monday in a statement from Lemon himself. According to Lemon, he was made aware of the decision by his agent and was not “given any indication” that his departure was on the horizon.
“I was informed this morning by my agent that I have been terminated by CNN,” Lemon said. “I am stunned. After 17 years at CNN I would have thought that someone in management would have had the decency to tell me directly. At no time was I ever given any indication that I would not be able to continue to do the work I have loved at the network. It is clear that there are some larger issues at play. With that said, I want to thank my colleagues and the many teams I have worked with for an incredible run. They are the most talented journalists in the business, and I wish them all the best.”

“Just found out Don Lemon was terminated from CNN. Damn, Don. But guess what, the brothers got your back,” Ross declared. However, you’d be wrong if you thought his follow-up would be a call to action or action to help the former television pundit regain his on-air slot.
