ESPN says 'SportsCenter' host Jemele Hill's anti-Trump tweets were 'inappropriate'

13 September 2017

Hill's employer, ESPN, responded with a statement calling her tweets inappropriate and saying they addressed the matter internally.

Hill, who co-hosts a 6 p.m. ET edition of ESPN's flagship program, blasted Trump in a series of tweets Monday evening, calling him a "white supremacist" who had also filled his administration with white supremacists.

Jemele Hill is the face of the newest ESPN controversy.

On Tuesday, the network released a statement on a comment the 41-year-old made on Twitter on Monday, when she labeled Trump a "white supremacist". On Tuesday, the World Wide Leader called Hill's actions "inappropriate".

Hill's original tweet went after Rock, the musician toying with a potential Senate run in MI. The popular musician has been to known to fly the Confederate flag at his concerts.

She called him "unqualified and unfit" to be president, adding that if he were not a Caucasian man, he would still be in NY and not the White House.

He loves black people so much that he pandered to racists by using a flag that unquestionably stands for dehumanizing black people. The network that fired Curt Schilling for spreading an anti-transgender rights meme is fighting a narrative that it leans left.
