Ex-CNN American television journalist Don Lemon  said that Elon Reeve Musk is not used to being "held to account" during an interview with People Magazine."

Don Lemon laid out more criticisms of the tech billionaire ahead of the release of his interview with Elon which premieres tomorrow at 7 am.

Lemon told People Magazine that Elon, "He's not used to having to answer to anyone, especially someone like me who doesn't share his worldview, who doesn't look like him."


Lemon hinted at some "uncomfortable" exchanges between him and Elon.

One fragment released shows Lemon questioning Elon asking if Musk thought minority pilots were less qualified than their white male counterparts.

Lemon didn't stop there, he also told People that Musk has been the most "sensitive or touchy" subject he's spoken to despite him having questioned " world leaders, presidents to convicts."

Lemon added, that Elon  " For someone who doesn't care about what people write or say about him, he sure does care about what people write or say about him.

Lemon shared that Elon's team wanted to review the footage before it was aired but were declined.

Lemon also talked about some of the white supremacist talking points Musk has promoted on his X account as well as his reportedly interaction with presumptive GOP candidate Donald Trump.

Elon reportedly canceled a partnership between him and Lemon since he was upset with the interview as told by Lemon.

Later Elon denied the accusation saying he thought Lemon's vision for the show would "work" on X.

Elon also said on X that, "His approach was basically just 'CNN', not on social media, which doesn't work as evidenced by the fact that CNN is dying,"
