Don Lemon has made a habit of putting a foot in his mouth. Most recently, the CNN news anchor apologized for insensitively suggesting that Bill Cosby accuser, Joan Tarshis, should have bitten him while being force to give oral sex.
In case you missed it … during Tuesday’s interview Lemon suggested the woman could have prevented Cosby from allegedly forcing her to perform oral sex. It came off like he was blaming the victim and angered a lot of viewers.
Lemon went on the air Wednesday afternoon and said, “As a victim myself I would never want to suggest that any victim could have prevented a rape. If my question struck anyone as insensitive, I’m sorry as that was not my intention.”
You’d think that a longtime television personality would know not to say things like that. But then again, there was this, too. Hear Lemon’s apology below.
