Last week, Lemon in an episode of CNN This Morning threw some harsh remarks about Nikki Haley by stating,

“She thinks people, you know, politicians or anything, are not in their prime. Nikki Haley isn’t in her prime, sorry. A woman’s prime is considered to be in her 20s, 30s, and possibly 40s.”

His insensitive theory garnered major criticism from the public including his co-host, Poppy Harlow.

Due to that, he was not on TV to kick off this week with the ratings of the show majorly dropping. However, he has decided to acknowledge his actions and apologized for the same. It is even reported that he will be returning to the network on Wednesday and will participate in formal training for his sexist remarks.
