On Monday (April 24), journalist Don Lemon announced that he’d been notified by his agent that CNN had terminated his contract. The anchor had been with the network since 2006 and voiced his disappointment that “after 17 years at CNN I would have thought someone in management would have the decency to tell me.”
Shortly thereafter, Rick Ross reacted to Lemon’s firing on his Instagram stories, and offered him a job. “Just found out Don Lemon was terminated from CNN. Damn, Don!,” he said. “But guess what? A brother’s got your back. We hiring at Wingstop, and for some reason, I believe you know what you’re doing with the lemon pepper wings. So, man, just send over your resume.”
The rap boss reportedly owns 25 Wingstop franchises across the country. Last August, when five of them in his home state of Mississippi were found in violation of several labor laws, a court ordered him to pay more than $100,000 in unpaid wages and damages.
