Don Lemon Apologizes for Giving Rape Advice

Don Lemon and Joan Tarshis

CNN Anchor Don Lemon apologized for offending viewers who objected to his inappropriate rape advice during an interview with a woman who accused Bill Cosby of rape.

During the interview with Joan Tarshis, Lemon, who is openly gay, suggested that Tarshis should have bitten down on Cosby’s penis when he allegedly forced her to perform oral sex on him.

“I didn’t even think of it,” said Tarshis, who seemed taken aback by Lemon’s suggestion.

Lemon, 48, responded to the public backlash this morning on CNN.

“A word about my interview last night with Cosby accuser Joan Tarshis: As I am 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 am sorry as that is certainly, and was not, my intention.”

    Now I’m no Bill Cosby fan and when this first came up I was like yeah he guilty but the more these women come forth (especially that dried up Angie Dickenson) I started saying all these broads are lying cause if they looked anything back then like they look now – who would want ’em……. but this ninja here if he was interviewing me and asked that I would have said phuck you lite skint nigguh and walked out (and i’m black but his statement was niggerish – he don’t need to apologize he need to be fired… ever watch the movie Boy’s don’t Cry with Hillary Swank the cops did the same thing to her when taking her statement – asking her all kinds of retarded questions about the rape… some men think rape is a joke and yes my instinct would be to bite the wein if I was under assault but to ask someone that dumb chit shows he is not the man for the job… he has no tact and no sense….

    Janice used to be stunning. used to kinda favor Cassie now that I think about it. lips used to be so beautiful :yes:

    rape victims have a tendency to make themselves unattractive after the fact or to lose their sense of self so yeah. I dont think he preyed on ppl who were all that mentally/emotionally/financially in tact to begin with.

    DTTS- I missed last night, but I said since the beginning I didn’t like her. I wish Casey dump her and kick her out.

    You being a victim yourself, so you say, does not change the nature of what you said.

    @ Come Through I was thinking the same thing.
