Bout That Life: CNN’s Don Lemon Snatches an Actor’s Wig on Twitter

By: Amanda Anderson-Niles

Who knew CNN’s Don Lemon was ’bout that life?’ The CNN reporter obviously doesn’t play games about how he’s greeted by other celebrities. The other day, Lemon ran into actor Jonah Hill, who’s primarily known by his breakout role in Superbad. Apparently, Lemon spoke to the actor, and he wan’t too thrilled with the way the actor acknowledged him. According to Lemon, he was greeted back in a rather rude manner. Caught totally off guard by the way he was greeted, Lemon did what any celebrity who’s bout that life does. Yes, he found him on Twitter and proceeded to snatch his wig and scalp in front of everyone.

Don Lemon tweets:

“Said hi to @jonahhill in hotel. Think he thought i was bellman. Didn’t know his name til bellman told me. A lesson to always be kind.”

Jonah Hill responds:

“@DonLemonCNN I said hi what do you want me to do move in with you? I was in a hurry. Didn’t realize you were a 12 year old girl. Peace.”

Lemon, who came out of the closet last year, didn’t appreciate Hill’s comments. He clapped back and said:

 “@jonahhill Hardly. You’re not my type. But I know rude. And u were.”

Hill responds:

“@DonLemonCNN i walked out of the restroom and found you waiting for me. Shook hands, said hi and was on my way. Sorry if you found that rude.”

Lemon finishes him:

“@jonahhill Was waiting for luggage. Bellman and I laughed at how self-important u were. Just being honest. Be nice. Stardom is fleeting.”

Ouch! Who knew Don Lemon could read somebody like that?

Although most of the Twitter exchange has been deleted, Don did address the situation on CNN. Watch the video here:


  1. LOL yes!!!! I don’t even know who Jonah is but I watch Don Lemon all the time Love him! And yes, these gay men can read folks for DAYS. Do not try them. lol

  2. I think Jonah knew who he was. That’s why he made the gay jokes. Sounds like he was just feeling himself. Bet he didn’t think Don would bury him on Twitter like that though. lol

  3. I like Don but he shouldn’t have done all of this. Sometimes people will be rude to you, let them learn on their own that they can’t do that.

  4. I would say I didn’t know Don had it in him, but then again, he’s a gay man. And snatching wigs comes natural to them. LOL
