ESPN lets Jemele Hill’s Trump as “white supremacist” comments slide

Source: Fox News

“ESPN host Jemele Hill called President Trump ‘a white supremacist’ in a Twitter rant on Monday, and the network said it ‘addressed’ the incident with Hill — though it didn’t detail how. The network said in a statement Hill’s comments ‘do not represent the position of ESPN.’ … ‘We have addressed this with Jemele and she recognizes her actions were inappropriate,’ ESPN said Tuesday. The co-host of the 6 p.m. ‘SportsCenter’ broadcast posted a series of tweets Monday night about the president. In her rant, she called Trump a white supremacist ‘who has largely surrounded himself [with] other white supremacists.’ and called him ‘ignorant’ and ‘offensive.’ She has yet to delete the tweets.” [editor’s note: once again, TMZ-PN shows why it should stick to airing sporting events, and STFU the rest of the time – SAT] (09/13/17)
