Former CNN host Soledad O’Brien denounced Don Lemon‘s New Year’s Eve on-air meltdown, describing it in a tweet as “a very low bar for credibility.” Lemon, 50, a native of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, downed shots of tequila, confessed his resolutions, hollered at New Orleans party-goers in the street, and got his ear pierced during the New Year’s Eve broadcast.

Social media users posted their favorite moments of the debacle as he made the night increasingly more difficult for his co-anchor, Brooke Baldwin.

“This is way too early to start this,” Baldwin told him. Lemon handed her a drink, but she put it aside.

Later, Lemon said, “People are saying that I’m lit. Yeah, I’m lit. Who cares?”

While Baldwin could have done without his drunk antics, Twitter could not get enough of it.

Do you agree with O’Brien? Sound off in comments.
