ESPN’s  Jemele Hill has been in the hot seat this week after describing President Donald Trump as a “white supremacist.” Though many defended her, Wednesday Hill apologized saying “My comments on Twitter expressed my personal beliefs. My regret is that my comments and the public way I made them painted ESPN in an unfair light. My respect for the company and my colleagues remains unconditional.”  Yesterday,  Trump’s press secretary, Sara Huckabee Sanders described Hill’s original comments as a “fireable offense” during a press conference at the White House.   ESPN  followed moments later with a press release stating: “Jemele has a right to her personal opinions, but not to publicly share them on a platform that implies that she was in any way speaking on behalf of ESPN. She has acknowledged that her tweets crossed that line and has apologized for doing so. We accept her apology.”
