Don Lemon Offered Job as Wingman for Famous Rapper

'But guess what? The brother's got your back... '

(Headline USA) Don Lemon was canned by CNN this week, but the former anchor already has another job offer.

Rapper Rick Ross, who owns more than two dozen Wingstop locations across the country, reached out to Lemon to offer him a job at Wingstop, saying, “I’mma make sure I get you in front of the right grill, brother.”

In an Instagram story on Tuesday, Ross reacted to the news of Lemon’s firing.

“Just found out Don Lemon was terminated from CNN. Damn, dawg,” he wrote. “But guess what? The brother’s got your back. We hiring at Wingstop. And for some reason, I believe you know what you doing with the lemon pepper wings, so man, just send over your resume.”

Lemon revealed on Monday that he had been fired by CNN after months of tension with the network’s management over his behavior.

“I was informed this morning by my agent that I have been terminated by CNN. I am stunned,” he wrote in a post on Twitter. “After 17 years at CNN I would have thought that someone in management would have had 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. 

“It is clear there are some larger issues at play,” Lemon added.

Shortly after Lemon’s announcement, CNN released its own statement contradicting Lemon’s version of events.

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,” the network said.

One report suggested Lemon’s viral exchange on air last week with GOP presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy was the final straw for CNN executives. The interview, during which Lemon complained about Ramaswamy “sitting there, whatever ethnicity you are, ‘splaining to me what it’s like to be black in America,” shocked CNN producers, the report said.
