This week Don Lemon was sued over an incident that took place in a bar. He allegedly stuck his hand inside his shorts and rubbed his genitals vigorously and then stuck two fingers under the victim’s nose and asked him if he liked d*#k or pu**y. Lemon has denied this happened.
Now, a witness has come forward and he says that he saw the entire incident and that many others probably did too because the bar was packed.
He also said that knowledge of the incident was plentiful and bartenders harassed the victim by offering him a Lemon drop shot.
The former boss of the man who filed an assault lawsuit against CNN’s Don Lemon came forward as a witness to the alleged assault, according to Fox News.
Dustin Hice filed a lawsuit Sunday against Lemon, a CNN host, alleging that Lemon “rubbed his genitalia” and then shoved his fingers in Hice’s face at a Long Island, New York, bar in 2018. CNN said that Lemon “categorically denies these claims” in a statement to the Daily Caller News Foundation Tuesday.
George Gounelas, Hice’s former manager at the bar where the alleged assault took place, told Fox News he witnessed the incident and supported Hice’s claims.
“He [Lemon] put his hands down his pants, inside his board shorts, grabbed his [genitals], and then came out with two fingers and, like, clipped Dustin’s nose up and down with two fingers asking ‘do you like pu**y or d*#k?’” Gounelas alleged according to Fox News.
“If someone had done that to me, I probably would have punched him.”
This was after Lemon came up to Hice and allegedly said something “along the lines of, ‘Do you like me? Is that why you’re bothering me, because you wanna f*#k me?” Fox News reported. Hice had previously offered to buy Lemon a drink.
