Polarizing CNN host Don Lemon is under scrutiny today after interviewing Joan Tarshis, one of the several women who have accused Bill Cosby of rape.
The pair’s interview started off fairly normally, but things quickly took a turn when it came to the details of what transpired between Tarshis and Cosby, particularly the latter being accused of forcing the former to perform oral sex on him.
“You know, there are ways not to perform oral sex if you didn't want to do it,” Lemon told the woman.
“I was kind of stoned at the time, and quite honestly, that didn't even enter my mind,” Tarshis replied. “Now I wish it would have.”
“Right. Meaning the using of the teeth, right?” Lemon continued.
While Tarshis did not openly complain about Lemon’s suggestion or questioning, viewers quickly jumped in – accusing the CNN host of victim blaming.
