ESPN announced it was not happy with Sportscenter host Jemele Hill's social media posts calling Donald Trump a "white supremacist" and a "bigot" on Monday.
"We have addressed this with Jemele and she recognizes her actions were inappropriate", the statement continued.
Why, exactly, Hill's comments specifically warranted a response from the White House when countless others have made similar-if not worse-claims, is unclear. "I think that's where we need to be focused, not on outrageous statements like" the one by Hill.
"I felt that the old school viewers were put in a corner and not appreciated with all these other changes", she explained.
Admittedly, some of Hill's comments were more inflammatory, even if they're nothing I'd personally argue with.
While many Twitter users called for Hill to be fired, unemployed National Football League quarterback Colin Kaepernick expressed his support, tweeting "We are with you @jemelehill".
ESPN responded with a brief statement shared on Twitter that distanced Hill's comments from the network. "There is no doubt he is Ms. Hill and I applaud you for speaking truth", said a user. She also said he's unqualified to be president.
