ESPN accepts Jemele Hill’s apology for Donald Trump tweets

Jemele Hill

Jemele Hill on Wednesday addressed the “elephant in the room” in her words, sending a statement via Twitter about the controversy in which she’s involved.

The ESPN personality, who is a co-host of “SC6 with Michael and Jemele”, took ownership of her controversial statement about President Donald Trump. She also said she regretted that her company was tied to her opinion.

ESPN said in a statement that Hill acknowledged her tweets crossed a line and apologized for doing so. They said they accepted her apology.

Hill on Monday stoked a political discussion on her Twitter account by making a comment about Kid Rock’s seeming senate bid. She then began engaging with some folks who responded, and the conversation was turned to President Trump, whom she called a white supremacist.

When questioned about her assertion that Trump is a white supremacist, Hill doubled down.

ESPN responded on Tuesday with a statement in which they called Hill’s tweets inappropriate.

Matters were ratcheted up after White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was asked about the tweets Wednesday and said she thought they were a “fireable offense.”

Hill has continued to host her show despite pressure from eternal entities over her remarks about Trump.
