There are some things you just don't do on live television. Getting hammered is one of those things.
However, that didn't stop CNN host Don Lemon from hilariously getting wasted on the air until CNN actually cut his audio feed. Yikes!
It all started when Lemon started doing tequila shots at 9 P.M. “This is way too early to start this,” his co-host, Brooke Baldwin warned.
Moments later, Kathy Griffin dared Lemon to get a nipple tattoo, but his co-host, Baldwin, urged him not to take his shirt off on live TV.
In true New Years Eve fashion, he got an ear piercing instead. This story just keeps getting better and better.
Finally, as midnight approached, Lemon could be heard telling his co-host that 2016 was just an “awful” year, but then, CNN quickly cut the audio feed.
When they brought him back 20 minutes later, he ended up spilling his heart on live television like any true drunk.
“Are we going there, right now?” Baldwin said.
“People are saying that I’m lit,” Lemon replied. “Yeah, I’m lit. Who cares?” Hey, at least he admits it! Lemon, like us, was ready to let go of 2016.
If we learned one thing from this story, it's that CNN should definitely go to New Orleans more.
