Lemon sparked outrage after he asserted that women in their 50s are “past their prime” while discussing Haley, who is 51.
The blowback was swift — and Lemon was noticeably absent from the morning show on Monday.
According to a report from the Daily Mail, a source within CNN told them, “people are hurt by his actions and are not going to let this go. It is like every woman over 50 in America has taken this as a personal insult. The female staffers at CNN definitely have. He needs to make his vacation a permanent one.”
A second source reportedly told the paper, “the women of CNN are angry. He’s made it impossible to do their jobs. He’s an embarrassment to the network and needs to go.”
Poppy Harlow was so upset about the comments that she reportedly stormed off the set.

“Don has been skating on thin ice for so long and many wanted him fired in December when he freaked out on Kaitlin Collins for no reason,” a source told the Mail. “She was in tears and it was so inappropriate.”
“Regardless of his political affiliation, his comments that Nikki Haley being past her prime were disgusting. Poppy was fuming, as she should be, and still is.”
