Don Lemon terminates exclusive deal with X after controversial interview with Elon Musk

Don Lemon shocked fans when he announced on social media that he was canceling his exclusive agreement with the platform owned by Elon Musk. The decision came before the premiere of the first episode of “The Don Lemon Show” and Lemon pointed to his interview with Elon Musk as the reason for the abrupt termination. Lemon had sat down with Musk for the first episode, citing Musk’s support for freedom of speech as the reason for having him as a guest. Despite Lemon’s assurance that the interview went well, Musk apparently did not share the same sentiment and ended their agreement shortly after the interview.

Lemon expressed his disappointment with the situation, emphasizing his belief in freedom of expression and his desire to reach a wide audience through X. Despite the termination of his agreement, Lemon is determined to continue with “The Don Lemon Show” without the backing of X. He plans to release the interview on YouTube and X, a move that could be seen as a direct challenge to Elon Musk. Reports suggest that the interview delved into sensitive topics, including Musk’s use of ketamine, leading to tension between the two.

In the aftermath of the fallout, Lemon’s spokesperson hinted at a potential legal battle over money owed by X. While X maintains that it supports freedom of speech and Lemon is free to publish as he wishes, the platform reserves the right to enter into or terminate partnerships as it sees fit. Elon Musk, on the other hand, responded critically to Lemon’s actions, accusing him of continuing his CNN-style tactics on X and questioning his authenticity. Musk’s comments seemed to be the final straw in the unraveling of their agreement.

The abrupt end to Don Lemon’s agreement with X has left lingering tensions on both sides. It is evident that there is animosity between Lemon and Musk, with both parties feeling aggrieved by the situation. While Lemon remains committed to his show and his message, the fallout from the interview with Musk has cast a shadow over his future relationship with the platform. Only time will tell if the rift between Lemon and X can be mended, but for now, the future of “The Don Lemon Show” hangs in the balance.
