    CNN Anchor Don Lemon admitted that he can relate to the alleged victims in Bishop Eddie Long’s sex scandal.
     
    During an on-air discussion with some of the bishop’s supporters this weekend, Don revealed live that he’d been molested.
     
    "I have never admitted this on TV," Don said to members of the New Birth Missionary Baptist Church. "I’m a victim of a pedophile when I was a kid. Someone who was much older than me."

     
    Many question why Eddie’s accusers have taken so long to say anything about their supposed affairs with preacher. The journalist explained that it could take years for victims to come to terms with what’s happened to them. Even then, they may not be ready to speak about it. 


     
    "The things these men were talking about, especially African American men don’t want to talk about,” Don said. “I couldn’t tell my mom that until I was 30 years old."
     

     
    The revelation was as much of a surprise to Don as it was viewers. After the broadcast, he tweeted "I had no idea I’d say that on national TV. It just came out. Sadly, it’s the truth for so many young men."
