Don Lemon Infuriates Twitter With Rape Comments

CNN’s Don Lemon found himself in hot water after interviewing Joan Tarshis, the woman who recently accused Bill Cosby of sexual assault.

During the interview, Lemon told Tarshis that “there are ways not to perform oral sex.” The CNN host was inferring that Tarshis could have bitten Cosby in order to stop the sexual assault. Many people saw Lemon’s comment as a way of blaming the victim for the attack.

Lemon has not commented directly on the controversy but he did retweet a message from one of his fans.
