At the time of Don’s birth, his mother was married to another man thus Don’s last name Lemon – he didn’t know who his father was until he turned five.

In January 2018, Don started his broadcast with these words: ‘This is CNN Tonight, I’m Don Lemon. The President of the United States is racist’. He has been highly criticized for this and it made him a target of Trump’s followers and white supremacists.
