People are taking a closer look at the behavior of talk show hosts following the release of the documentary Framing Britney Spears and Letterman was already called out for his interview with Lindsay Lohan from 2013.
Now, he is also facing backlash for his interview with Jennifer, in which he put her hair into his mouth and sucked on it.
The interview took a weird turn when Letterman paused the conversation and said, “Forgive me if this is rude. I just want to try one thing.” He then moved closer to her, put his hand on her shoulder, and put a piece of her hair in his mouth. Even though she squealed and seemed uncomfortable, he continued to suck on the strand of hair.
“That was something that I’ll never forget,” Jennifer said. When Letterman told her that she seemed to be “traumatized,” she replied, “I am.”

These Letterman clips have been making the rounds online – and they are disturbing to say the least.
How was this even acceptable baffles the mind and conscience.

That is so creepy and disgusting. What a misogynistic thing to do to a woman. And on national television.
