“At no time did they give me any indication that I would not be able to continue doing the work I loved on the web. It is clear that there are some bigger issues at stake,” she wrote.

Shortly after Lemon’s announcement, CNN characterized the situation as the company having «parted ways» with the host.

«Don will always be a part of the CNN family and we thank him for his contributions.» the company tweeted. «We wish him the best and we will encourage him in his future endeavors.»

CNN later rejected the anchor’s statement, calling his claims «inaccurate.» Rather than be fired without notice, the company tweeted that Lemon was «offered the opportunity to meet with management, but issued a statement on Twitter instead.»

The high-profile departure comes just after Fox News announced that host Tucker Carlson would be leaving the outlet. It’s a major change for both companies as they lose two of the most popular hosts on cable television.
