Don Lemon, the former star anchor of CNN who was recently terminated, was seen walking a red carpet and speaking to various media outlets at the Time 100 gala in New York City on Wednesday. Despite his alleged behavior in the workplace, as reported by Variety, and his departure from CNN, Lemon appeared to be in high spirits with a smile on his face. He stated that he was ready for his new chapter and was fortunate enough not to have to worry about finding another job. He expressed his desire to work again but stated that he did not have to rush into it.
Lemon responded to questions about his termination, stating that he was surprised and had not been given any indication that he would not be able to continue working at the network. CNN, however, pushed back on Lemon’s statement and claimed that he was offered an opportunity to meet with management but instead released a statement on Twitter. Lemon’s termination came after he made controversial remarks about Republican presidential candidate Nikki Haley on his morning show and after Variety reported that his behavior toward women had been called into question several times over the course of his career.
Despite these challenges, Lemon spoke about his life experiences and the importance of focusing on what is truly important in life. He stated that he was excited for a new chapter and planned to spend his summer on the beach and with his family. When asked about his influence at CNN, Lemon suggested that his colleagues would have a good answer. Lemon’s comments suggested that he was looking forward to a new beginning and was not dwelling on the past.
