Rick Ross offers fired CNN anchor Don Lemon fry cook gig at any of his Wingstop locations

The Atlanta rapper said he would get Don Lemon ‘in front of the right grill’

Rick Ross has gone from growing up in an impoverished area to a record label boss.

Atlanta rapper Rick Ross took to social media this week to offer fired CNN anchor Don Lemon a job at Wingstop. Ross owns a number of locations. Lemon was a co-host on CNN’s morning show until Monday, when the longtime anchor was suddenly fired from his position.

“Just found out Don Lemon was terminated from CNN. D--n, dawg,” Ross said on social media, as spotted by TMZ. “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 résumé. I’ma make sure I get you in front of the right grill, brother. Stay solid, brother.”

Later, the Atlanta rapper returned to social media to offer another Rick Ross-style entrepreneurial idea for the fired anchor.

“Just came up with a wonderful idea — well, really, Don, you helped me come up with this,” Ross said. “I need to hit the team over at Rapstar Energy Drink and let ‘em know we should introduce the Don Lemon flavor. What y’all think? Don, we got you brother!”

Lemon’s 17-year career with CNN was not without controversy. Earlier this year, the anchor implied that former South Carolina governor was no longer in her prime due to her age — 51. Lemon told his two female co-anchors that a woman is really in her prime “in her 20s, 30s and maybe her 40s.”

Following sensitivity training, Lemon returned to air shortly after.

Lemon took to Twitter shortly after his firing to issue a statement on the matter.

“I was informed this morning by my agent that I have been terminated by CNN,” he wrote. “I am stunned. After 17 years at CNN I would have thought that someone at 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 do the work I have loved at the network. It is clear that there are some larger issues at play. With that said, I want to thank my colleagues and the many teams I have worked with for an incredible run.”

CNN, however, shortly issued a statement on the social media platform that commented on Lemon’s claims.

“CNN and Don have parted ways,” the news company said on Twitter. “Don will forever be a part of the CNN family, and we thank him for his contributions over the past 17 years. We wish him well and will be cheering him on in his future endeavors.”

Minutes later, CNN issued a second statement.

“Don Lemon’s statement about this morning’s events is inaccurate,” CNN said in a second Twitter post. “He was offered an opportunity to meet with management but instead released a statement on Twitter.”
