CNN is facing boycott threats over its upcoming interview with ex-President Donald Trump, RadarOnline.com has learned. The town hall is set to kick off in New Hampshire at 8 PM on Wednesday with Kaitlan Collins as the host, hours after a jury found him liable for sexually abusing E. Jean Carroll.

As this outlet reported, Carroll was awarded $5 million in damages — $2 million for the sexual abuse and $3 million for defamation — on Tuesday. While the jury found Trump liable for sexual abuse and forcefully touching the ex-magazine columnist in the '90s, they did not find him liable for rape.

Outraged anti-Trumpers took to social media to take a stand against CNN giving the ex-President a platform, given what unfolded hours before.

"I am calling on @cnn & @kaitlancollins to immediately cancel the Town Hall for sex abuser Trump or face justifiable shame, boycott, & ruin," added a second. "Note to CNN: why give Trump a prime time platform to lie? You contributed to his Russian-assisted presidency in 2016. Do you want more? Do you want to witness more destruction of our democracy? Boycott CNN!" posted a third.

#BoycottCNN immediately began trending.

As of this post, CNN, Trump, and Collins have not shown any sign they plan to cancel the event. Interestingly enough, this is the same network that the ex-President accused of spreading "fake news." All eyes will be on Collins, 30, as she throws hard-hitting questions at the former commander-in-chief — sorry, Don Lemon.
