Don Lemon has been fired at CNN.

CNN said they parted ways with Lemon, without specifying a reason. They said, ”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."

Lemon was a longtime host in prime time who had recently shifted to a morning show co-hosted with Poppy Harlow and Kaitlan Collins. The show will continue without Lemon.

Earlier this year, Lemon drew controversy when he suggested on air that GOP presidential candidate Nikki Haley was no longer "in her prime" at age 51.

Lemon did his show yesterday as usual, but he later issued a statement described by CNN as "scathing." He said he learned that he had been "terminated" from his agent.

Lemon wrote, “I am stunned. After 17 years at CNN I would have thought that someone in 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 to do the work I have loved at the network.”

CNN, however, refuted part of that and said, "Don Lemon’s statement about this morning’s events is inaccurate. He was offered an opportunity to meet with management but instead released a statement on Twitter."
