ESPN Distances Itself From Anchor Jemele Hill's Anti-Trump Tweets

ESPN is distancing itself from anchor Jemele Hill's anti-Trump tweets after she called President Donald Trump "a white supremacist" and "a bigot."

"The comments on Twitter from Jemele Hill regarding the president do not represent the position of ESPN," says the network's public relations department.

"We have addressed this with Jemele and she recognizes her actions were inappropriate."

This after Hill, a 'SportsCenter' co-host, described Trump as "a white supremacist who has largely surrounded himself with other white supremacists."

"Trump is the most ignorant, offensive president of my lifetime. His rise is a direct result of white supremacy. Period."

She went on to say: "Donald Trump is a bigot... The height of white privilege is being able to ignore his white supremacy, because it's of no threat to you. Well, it's a threat to me."

While Trump supporters called for Hill to be fired, NFL player Colin Kaepernick, who kneeled during the anthem last season to protest police brutality, expressed his support and said "We are with you."
