FOX News host Bill O’Reilly tried to come for Don Lemon. We don’t know why, though, because Don certainly didn’t send for him. Luckily, Lemon got him together real quick with one tweet!
In case you missed it, O’Reilly has been embroiled in a slew of nasty sexual harassment allegations as of late. Apparently, he’s paid upwards of $13 million to a handful of women in exchange for their silence. But instead of focusing on his own misconduct, he tried to call Don out for not covering the Susan Rice story. Well, Billy boy was wrong on two fronts. One: Lemon actually did address the former National Security Adviser and the “unmasking” story. Two: Bill underestimated the levels of savage within the CNN host.
Don’s clapback was epic for many reasons, but mainly because, like O’Reilly, we didn’t know he had it in him. We can’t believe we’re saying this, but kudos to Don Lemon!
Oh, and just like Lemon, advertisers aren’t having any of Bill’s nonsense either. After the startling revelations on his unlawful behavior, 15 companies — including BMW, Bayer, Wayfair, Lexus, Credit Karma and more — have pulled their ads from The O’Reilly Factor. Hopefully he just fades to black soon.
