Don Lemon Offered Job at Fast Food Restaurant Chain: ‘Just Send Over Your Resume’

Published on

Don Lemon was offered employment immediately after announcing via Twitter on Monday that he had been dismissed after 17 years with CNN.

On Monday, Fox News abruptly parted ways with top-rated primetime host Tucker Carlson, so he was unable to savor a news cycle to himself.

According to reports, Lemon has retained the services of renowned entertainment attorney Bryan Freedman, which may indicate that the former “Don Lemon Tonight” and “CNN This Morning” anchor intends to pursue a substantial severance package from the liberal network.

In the event that he is unable to secure such a compensation, he has another possible source of income.

Rick Ross, who operates over thirty Wingstop franchises across the United States, offered Lemon a position at any of them.

“Just found out Don Lemon was terminated from CNN. Damn, Don,” Ross said in a video message posted to social media.

“But guess what?” he continued. “The brother’s got your back. We hiring at Wingstop, and for some reason I believe you know what you doing with the lemon-pepper wings.”

“So man, just send over your résumé — well — after 17 years, damn,” he said.

The rapper then deadpanned, “But I’ma make sure I get you in front of the right grill, brother. Stay solid, brother.”

There was no indication Lemon intended to accept his offer.

The longtime CNN host tweeted on Monday that he learned from his agent that he was being let go by the network.

“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,” he added. “It is clear that there are some larger issues at play.”

Lemon concluded, “I want to thank my colleagues and the many teams I have worked with for an incredible run.”

The CNN Communications Twitter account immediately refuted his claims.

“Don Lemon’s statement about this morning’s events is inaccurate,” it said.

The account added, “He was offered an opportunity to meet with management but instead released a statement on Twitter.”
