After losing his job at CNN on Monday, former cable news anchor Don Lemon was offered a job in the fast food industry by rapper Rick Ross, in which he promised to get Lemon “in front of the right grill.”

Ross posted on Instagram offering Lemon a job at WingStop, a popular wing joint in which Ross owns nearly 30 locations across the United States.

“Just found out Don Lemon was terminated from CNN,” the rapper said, “Damn, Don. But guess what? The brothers got your back. We hiring at Wingstop and for some reason I believe you know what you doing with them lemon pepper wings. So, man, just send over your résumé. 17 years. Damn. But I’mma make sure I get you in front of the right grill, brother.”

Ross posted another video later, also addressed to Lemon, stating that he wanted to collaborate with the disgraced anchor on a new flavor of his Rapstar energy drink line.

“Just came up with a wonderful idea — well, really, Don, you helped me come up with this,” Ross said. “I need to hit the team over at Rapstar Energy Drink and let ’em know we should introduce the Don Lemon flavor. What y’all think? Aye, Don, we got you brother!”

On Monday, the This Morning host announced that he had been terminated at CNN.

He blasted the mainstream media company, claiming that “it is clear that there are some larger issues at play.”

Lemon wrote, “I was informed this morning by my agent that I have been terminated by CNN. I am stunned. After 17 years at CNN I would have thought that someone in management would have had the decency to tell me directly. At no time was I ever given any indication that I would not be able to continue to do the work I have loved at the network.”

He added, “It is clear that there are some larger issues at play. With that said, I want to thank my colleagues and the many teams I have worked with for an incredible run. They are the most talented journalists in the business, and I wish them all the best.”
