It’s CNN’s Don Lemon vs. Jonah Hill – or, the “tool’ vs. “a 12 year old girl”

You might not want to invite CNN anchor Don Lemon and actor Jonah Hill to the same party anytime soon.

It seems to two had a face-to-face encounter in a New York City hotel on Thursday that was so unpleasant that it has resulted in a Twitter war.

‘Said hi to Jonah in a hotel,’ Lemon wrote in a tweet that kicked things off. ‘Think he thought I was a bellman. Didn’t know his name til the bellman told me. A lesson to always be kind.’

Lemon, in a subsequent tweet referred to the Moneyball star as ‘a tool.’

Hill fired back: ‘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.’

But there was no peace.

Lemon replied: ‘Hardly. You’re not my type. But I know rude. And u were.’

Hill responded with his side of the story: ‘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.’

Replied Lemon: ‘Was waiting for luggage. Bellman & I laughed at how self-important u were. Just being honest. Be nice. Stardom is fleeting.’

6 Remarks

  1. What I find confusing is the CNN guy says he didn’t know Jonah was an actor until someone told him. Why would you go and say hi to an actor you had never heard of?

  2. Maybe he was cruising the bathroom and Jonah rejected him?

  3. It’s called being polite. I say hi to people all the time, I don’t know what everyone’s occupation is, nor do I recognize if someone is an actor or not. If they’re rude to me, I just shrug and go on my way. I used to be in radio in several different cities, over the years only one person recognized my voice and was very excited about meeting me and I was grateful that they liked me enough to listen to me! Also have talked to a few actors over the years for interviews, most can be really nice on-air but once off-air, complete A-holes! I thanked them and went on my way. For all you or I know, Jonah may have been having a bad day or Don may have been having a bad day.

  4. Lemon seems to be acting very immature about this which surprises me. He needs to stop talking about it.

  5. Usually qualtiy news reports comes out of Lemon’s mouth in front of CNN’s cameras.

  6. Jonah Hill is a no talent pig….why is he even considered a celebrity.
