ESPN Slaps Host Jemele Hill on the Wrist for Calling President Trump a ‘White Supremacist’ on Twitter
HEY ESPN, AND YOU WONDER WHY YOU ARE HEMORRHAGING VIEWERSHIP AND LAYING OFF STAFF?
Ever wonder what it took to keep your job at ESPN as they are in the midst of massive layoffs? One just has to be black, female, liberal and espouse vile hatred toward President Donald Trump. ESPN host Jemele Hill called President Trump a “white supremacist” via Twitter. Hmm, remember when ESPN was all about sports? Me neither. So what did the ESPN brass do to Jemele Hill for her inappropriate actions? That’s correct, nothing. Less than a slap on the wrist. No suspension, no firing, just a firm talking to. Wow, this is a far cry from what they did to Curt Schilling when ESPN fired him for comments that he made over social media after he shared on Facebook a lewd cartoon criticizing North Carolina’s controversial “bathroom bill,” that would have required transgender individuals to use public bathrooms that corresponded to the sex they were assigned at birth. So whats the difference? Curt was male, white and most importantly, leans right. Sadly ESPN has become a joke of a network as it has moved so far LEFT in recent years that its nearly unwatchable. ESPN claims they are an inclusive company. Really? You mean only inclusive and diverse to your Leftist agenda.
Yeah Jemele, President Trump is such a white supremacist. Why don’t you stick to what little you do actually know about. This BS from the same liberal who has crusaded for the no-talent and American hating QB Colin Kaepernick to get his job back. People tune into ESPN for sports and to get away from politics. It is no wonder ESPN is dying on the vine these days.
Popular ESPN “SportsCenter” host Jemele Hill is no fan of President Trump. However, her employer would rather she keep that to herself.
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.”
ESPN, which has been accused by far-right conservatives of being too openly liberal with its politics, called Hill’s tweet “inappropriate” and noted her comments do not “represent the position of ESPN.”
ESPN said it addressed the issue with Hill, who will not be suspended or further punished for her expressing her views online.
Among those offering support for Hill online was Colin Kaepernick, who told her via Twitter, “We are with you,” and who himself has been highly critical of Trump. The former 49ers quarterback has been notably unable to latch on with an NFL team, which many attribute to his protests of racial injustice last season, in which he knelt during pregame renditions of the national anthem.
Hill’s tweet about Trump came just before 8 p.m. Monday as a reply to three others who had joined a conversation sparked by an earlier tweet about musician Kid Rock, who has spent much of the summer teasing at a Republican run for the U.S. Senate.
Hill originally commented on an article tweeted by the Hill about Kid Rock’s rejection of being labeled a racist because he favors the Confederate Flag.
A note to ESPN, you should be ashamed of yourself. Nice double standard you have at your company. You should have taken action against Ms. Hill for her irresponsible actions and suspended her. It is no wonder that your network is only a shell of what it once was. STICK TO SPORTS! But instead you have to push your liberal agenda down the throats of your viewers, many of which voted for President Donald Trump. I would dare say that your viewership base is more Red state than blue. You might want to remember that.
