Social media users accuse CNN anchor of being drunk on the air during New Years Eve celebration
Don Lemon appeared to have a bit too much of the holiday spirit in him during CNN’s live New Years Eve celebration broadcast.
Lemon appeared live on the air from New Orleans with fellow CNN anchor Brooke Baldwin, while Kathy Griffin and Anderson Cooper were in Times Square.
“I have to say, Kathy–I have to say nice rack,” Lemon said at one point. “I didn’t know you had all of that.” After making the comment, Baldwin took Lemon’s cup away and said, “I’m cutting him off!” Check out video of the exchange below.
Twitter users had a field day with Lemon during the broadcast, with many wondering if he was drunk on the air. Lemon was seen drinking from several different glasses during the night, including when Baldwin poured him a glass of champagne and he began singing, “I got that bubbly.”
Lemon also took to Twitter to get fans to vote on whether or not he and Baldwin should get into a hot tub at the party they were broadcasting from, with Lemon eventually taking a dip.
Lemon also got in on the fun, responding to one user who asked him if he had a hangover by simply saying, “No comment.”
