AceShowbiz - Rick Ross is weighing on Don Lemon's shocking firing from CNN. Living up to his Biggest Boss title, Rick took to Instagram to offer the 51-year-old former news anchor some career advice and a new job.
"I just found out Don Lemon was terminated from CNN. Damn, Don. But guess what? A brother's got your back!" Rozay said in Instagram Stories on Monday, April 14. He then insinuated that Don could work at his Wingstop franchise as he added, "We're hiring at WingStop."
Rick continued, "And for some reason, I believe you know what you're doing with them LEMON pepper wings. So, man just send over your resume. 17 years, damn. But, I'm gonna make sure I get you in front of the right grill, brother. Stay solid, brother."
Rick wasn't the only celebrity commenting on the news anchor's firing from the network after working for 17 years following his sexism scandal. On Monday, Donald Trump expressed his excitement over the news, writing on Truth Social, "Good News: 'The dumbest man on television', Don Lemon, has finally been fired from Fake News CNN." The former U.S. President added, "My only question is, WHAT TOOK THEM SO LONG?"
Don announced his firing on Twitter. "After 17 years at CNN I would have thought someone in management would have 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 tweeted about finding out from his agent he had lost his job.
"It is clear that there are some larger issues at play. With that said, I want to thank my colleagues and the many teams I have worked with for an incredible run. They are the most talented journalists in the business, and I wish them all the best," he continued.
CNN's communications team, however, called his statement false. It clarified, "Don Lemon's statement about this morning's events is inaccurate. He was offered an opportunity to meet with management but instead released a statement on Twitter."
Prior to the firing, Don landed in hot water for saying that presidential candidate Nikki Haley "isn't in her prime" as a 51-year-old woman. A story published on Variety earlier this month also detailed his "troubling treatment of women and unprofessional antics" for nearly two decades, though Don denied the allegations.
