A lawsuit filed in Suffolk County, New York, claims that CNN host Don Lemon inflicted “emotional pain and suffering” on a man during a July 2018 incident.

The lawsuit details last summer’s incident by alleging that after placing his hands down his own pants and “vigorously rubbing his genitalia,” Lemon “intensely pushed his fingers against Plaintiff’s face under Plaintiff’s nose, forcing Plaintiff’s head to thrust backward.” He allegedly further harassed Hice with aggressive sexual questions.

The article goes on to state the following:

A statement issued by CNN denies the claims and says the man, Dustin Hice, had a history of antagonizing CNN and its employees on social media. “The plaintiff in this lawsuit has previously displayed a pattern of contempt for CNN on his social media accounts,” a spokesperson for CNN said to Mediaite. “This claim follows his unsuccessful threats and demands for an exorbitant amount of money from Don Lemon. Don categorically denies these claims and this matter does not merit any further comment at this time.”

The lawsuit comes one day after another CNN personality, anchor Chris Cuomo, was filmed cursing at a man for calling him “Fredo”.
