ESPN Releases Statement On Hill Tweets About Trump

posted by Hector Gonzales -

ESPN is distancing itself from comments made by SportsCenter anchor Jemele Hill.  In a series of tweets Monday, Hill called Donald Trump a white supremacist who was unfit to be president.  She added that it was the height of white privilege to able to ignore Trump's white supremacy because it's of no threat to you.  ESPN released a statement Tuesday saying Hill's views did not reflect those of the network. 

 It said ESPN had addressed the issue with Hill and that she recognizes her actions were inappropriate.
