CNN anchor, Don Lemon, has opened up and shared his comments on Robin Roberts coming out.

Lemon stated that he didn’t come out sooner due to fear of losing both viewers and his job.

CNN anchor, Don Lemon, took time at the end of the show ‘OutFront’, to comment on fellow anchor Robin Roberts recently coming out as gay.

Lemon shared his personal reasons for not coming out sooner,

“I can’t speak for Robin Roberts, nor any of my recently out gay colleagues. I didn’t do it sooner because I was afraid of losing my livelihood. I was afraid that you would no longer watch me.”

He further stated that in today’s political climate, it’s still important for people to come out,

“[If] people like Phil Robertson are deserving of keeping their platforms and are even being defended and celebrated, then people like Don Lemon, or Thomas Roberts, or Rachel Maddow, or Sam Champion, or Anderson Cooper or Robin Roberts are also deserving of their platforms and should be celebrated, as well. That’s why it’s still important to come out and say very simply, ‘I’m gay.’”
