CNN staffers are fuming over Don Lemon’s cringeworthy apology for his on-air, sexist diatribe about 51-year-old Nikki Haley — with some calling for the anchor to be fired.

Evan Agostini/Invision/APLemon’s apology follows a drumbeat of self-inflicted wounds, including The Post’s report that Lemon screamed at his “CNN This Morning” co-anchor Kaitlan Collins, after she interrupted him on air in December. Lemon’s blowup reportedly upset his co-hosts Kaitlan Collins (L) and Poppy Harlow (R), as network boss Licht scrambles to clean up the anchor’s mess.
