"She recognizes her actions were inappropriate."
Jemele Hill, co-host of ESPN's "SC:6," called out President Trump in a series of tweets last night for being a white supremacist who surrounds himself with other white supremacists, and the most offensive president of her lifetime.
Her exact tweet was, “Donald Trump is a white supremacist who has largely surrounded himself w/ other white supremacists." Naturally, as with all things political, Hill's tweet received plenty of interaction on both ends of the spectrum, including tweets from people who supported her and those who immediately called for her firing.
Hill, who is always active on social media and is never shy to respond to her critics, did just that last night when she was attacked for her comments.
Today, ESPN released the following statement regarding Jemele Hill's tweet about Trump being a white supremacist. The statement reads,
"The comments on Twitter from Jemele Hill regarding the President do not represent the position of ESPN. We have addressed this with Jemele and she recognizes her actions were inappropriate."
