Lemon is losing it.
According to a report from The Daily Mail, CNN morning show co-host Don Lemon screamed at fellow host Kaitlan Collins, 30, who ran off the set in tears in December.
From The Daily Mail:
CNN boss Chris Licht, who pledged to give CNN a makeover since taking over the outlet last year and then announced shocking layoffs, was supposedly stunned at the news and told Lemon to take the following day off to “cool off.”
“Don screamed at Kaitlan, who was visibly upset and ran out of the studio,” the source told The Post.
CNN This Morning is a ratings bomb and early last month experienced its least-viewed week since launch, averaging just over 330,000 viewers
Once news of the set squabble got out, Lemon vanished “on assignment.”
From Fox News:
“Don is on assignment in Los Angeles,” Collins said to open the show, squashing hopes of anyone tuning in to see if there was awkwardness on the set. On Thursday, it was reported that Lemon had a “nasty” exchange in December with his “CNN This Morning” colleague.
During CNN’s breaking news of Brittney Griner’s release from Russia on Dec. 8, there were multiple on-air instances where Collins attempted to interject while Lemon was speaking. At one point, Lemon wagged his finger above the desk and told her “stand by one second.”
