Don Lemon Apologizes For Comments Made to Bill Cosby Accuser

By Brian Flood Comment

CNN’s Don Lemon has issued an on-air apology for remarks he made during last night’s interview with Bill Cosby accuser Joan Tarshis. Lemon, who is a victim of sexual abuse himself, caused a social media uproar by telling Tarshis, “there are ways not to perform oral sex if you didn’t want to do it.”

“I would never want to suggest that any victim could have prevented a rape. If my question to her [Tarshis] struck anyone as insensitive, I am sorry, as that was certainly not my intention,” Lemon said.
