Don Lemon reportedly suffered a second meltdown when his screaming fit at his “CNN This Morning” co-star Kaitlan Collins was exposed in the media.
According to RadarOnline, Lemon “went ballistic” at CNN staffers after the company newsletter featured a story about his temper tantrum over Collins “interrupting” him on set.
“Don lost his mind internally and went ballistic at staffers after the CNN newsletter highlighted a story about him screaming,” a source told Radar.
This comes after Megyn Kelly said she believed this was not Lemon’s first temper tantrum and called for his firing.
CNN’s new morning show starring Lemon has been plagued by low ratings that continue to fall.
The show has seen declining ratings month after month which is a bad sign for a new show.
According to the initial report, Lemon screamed at co-host Collins after the December 8 broadcast because she “interrupted” him on air.
The New York Post broke the story which was quickly confirmed by multiple media outlets.
The Post’s sources said: “At this point, Kaitlan wants to be on set with Don as little as possible. It’s messy.”
“Don screamed at Kaitlan, who was visibly upset and ran out of the studio,” a source told the Post about the meltdown.
Lemon was told by CNN CEO Chris Licht “to take the next day off to cool off.”
Megyn Kelly played clips of Collins interrupting Lemon on air before saying, “Oh, okay. So there was some interrupting.
“It happens when you co-host a show, it happens.”
She continued by comparing Lemon’s aggressive behavior toward his female colleague to the MeToo movement.
“If somebody ever screamed at me to the point where I was visibly upset and ran out of the studio, I would have that person fired,” Kelly said.
“I would make sure that person was fired.
“If that is true, The New York Post‘s report, Jesse, then I will say that’s not the first time he’s done it.
“I will go out on a limb right now and tell you: that’s not the first time.
“There will be another woman, if The New York Post digs, who he’s co-anchored with, I guarantee you, who’s going to come out and say Me Too,” she said.
