CNN fired Don Lemon yesterday after 17 years at the network, according to his Twitter account:

There have been rumors for years of Lemon’s alleged misogyny and “diva-like” behavior behind the scenes at the network. Now the New York Times says they believe this encounter with the Republican nominee Vivek Ramaswamy sealed Lemon’s fate on the network.
according to the NYT this interview that Don Lemon conducted last week with Vivek Ramaswamy played a role in his firing. Note co-host Poppy Harlow sitting silently while Lemon goes after Vivek. pic.twitter.com/Fjx5eX30wU

Though I think Lemon is a controversial talent, I like to think he is still a hot commodity, I assume he’ll land somewhere soon.
