Controversial CNN anchor Don Lemon is catching heat for his inappropriate question to an alleged rape victim while on the air.

Lemon, who is gay, was interviewing Joan Tarshis, one of the women accusing actor/comedian Bill Cosby of rape.

During the interview, Lemon suggested that Tarshis should have bitten down on Cosby’s penis during the attack. “I didn’t even think of it,” said Tarshis, who seemed shocked by the question.

Lemon, who revealed he was molested by a male family member as a child, was dragged unmercifully on social media platform Twitter.com for his biting advice (no pun intended).

Tarshis alleges that Cosby raped her when she was 19 years old. Former supermodel Janice Dickinson came forward on Tuesday to accuse Cosby of drugging and sexually assaulting her. The statute of limitations has run out on the alleged rapes.
