Ouch. When life hands you Lemon, things get awkward really fast.
In an interview Tuesday with Joan Tarshis, one of the women who recently spoke up about new allegations of sexual assault against Bill Cosby, CNN anchor Don Lemon offered some very unusual advice on how she might have avoided it.
Lemon: You — you know, there are ways not to perform oral sex if you didn't want to do it.
Tarshis: I was kind of stoned at the time, and quite honestly, that didn't even enter my mind. Now I wish it would have.
Lemon: Right. Meaning the using of the teeth, right?
Following the interview, Twitter users took to the hashtag #DonLemonReporting to express their meme-rage.

Bill Cosby attempted a simple little PR stunt on Twitter Monday, and it blew up in his face almost instantly.
Tweeting a link to a Cosby meme generator on his website (which has since been deleted), he asked his followers to turn his pictures into memes, by adding some text.
But this year, following news that he would be starring in a new NBC sitcom, Cosby's past has come back to haunt him, with old sexual assualt allegations resurfacing in the media.
So it probably wasn't the best time to ask people to get creative with Cosby's images. Has his social media team ever even heard of the Internet?
Here are a few examples of the resulting Cosby meme - he certainly got lots of attention for this stunt, but not in the way they had hoped.
