After CNN news anchor Don Lemon claimed that Black and White Americans live in “different realities," Fox News host and Daily Caller co-founder Tucker Carlson revealed that Lemon reportedly lives in a $4.3 million house in an area of New York where 80 percent of the population is White and only three percent consisted of African Americans. 

On his show 'Tucker Carlson Tonight,' on Monday, June 21, Carlson unleashed his wrath against Lemon who told The Washington Post on June 11 that “we’re living in two different realities as White and Black people.” The right-wing host said that his show had found out that the CNN anchor lived in a multi-million dollar home in Suffolk County, Long Island, in a town that is overwhelmingly White.

“What is the different reality he is forced to live in as a Black man in America? We did a little bit of digging and here are the details: Don Lemon lives in a $4.3 million home in Sag Harbor, New York. No, he does not live in Section 8 housing. He lives in one of the whitest towns in America, in fact, 80%. Sag Harbor is just 3% African-American,” Carlson said. “In the interview, he said America needs to see more people like him. He regularly lectures America about diversity. What he didn’t tell the Washington Post is that, in his free time, he runs away from diversity. His reality is that he doesn’t like diversity at all. None of them do.”

While Don Lemon might not be close to becoming a billionaire, he is doing pretty well for himself. Apart from CNN, he has also worked for other big networks such as NBC and MSNBC. However, he is perhaps better known for CNN Tonight. He has won a number of awards, including three Emmys. 

According to Celebrity Net Worth, Lemon's net worth is an estimated $12 million, which also includes his $4 million salary. In 2020, it was reported that Lemon was selling his home in Harlem for $1.75 million. It features 1,400 square feet of living space, two bedrooms, and 2.5 bathrooms. It also had a large balcony with panoramic views of Harlem and floor-to-ceiling windows. The left-wing host originally acquired the condo seven years ago for $1.5 million. 

Lemon had previously owned another unit in the same building, which he sold for $970,000 in 2016. He also owns a home in the Hamptons neighborhood of Sag Harbor that he purchased in 2016 for $3 million. The value of the home is estimated to be $4.5 million today. 

'Successful Victims'

Soon enough, Carlson fans started rallying on Twitter against Lemon. "'Successful Victims' about to start using that one," one of them said while another commented, "Don Don’t Do The Hood!" One more remarked, "Good One.... I love when their hypocrisy is served up for the rest to see."

"So much potential to help those he supposedly cares about but instead he’d rather have a 4.3 million dollar house for himself as far away from “those people” as possible," said a third.

"Such an affluent lifestyle….I’m curious how much Don pays in taxes??" wondered another.



 

 



 

 



 



 



 

However, there were those who chose to back Lemon, calling out Tucker for his biased reporting. "Imagine thinking Tucker owned him by saying this," one of them said, while another noted, "And how many black millionaire live in the hood not one lol." A third remarked, "You never remember to remind people that Tucker Carlson OWNS the Daily Caller."

The next quipped, "It's time to expose the trailer where Tucker lives?" One more pointed out, "If Don Lemon gets stopped by the wrong cop on the wrong night do you really think him having a multi-million dollar home will make a difference? Wealthy black people experience prejudice too."
