Nonetheless, it rather predictably drew the ire of some of ESPN'smore conservative viewers, some of whom felt that Hill was unfairly disparaging the president.
Publicly calling someone - and especially the president of the United States - a white supremacist is something you would expect from some random, anonymous yahoo on social media; not a respected journalist like Jemele Hill. Flirting with a U.S. Senate run in Michigan, Rock wrote on Facebook he "loves black people" and accused the "extreme left" of "trying to use the old confederate flag BS" to label him a racist.
Hill made the comments on Twitter on Monday, Sept. 11, in an interaction with a Twitter follower.
Because 53% of white women chose to turn their collective backs on America, Donald Trump is in office and since then I can't figure out which side is up anymore.
That was when shecalled Trump a white supremacist.
ESPN's statement has largely been seen as the network pandering to its white, right wing base, an idea that folks on Twitter didn't mince words expressing.
In a statement Tuesday, ESPN said Hill's comments about Trump "do not represent the position" of the network.
ESPN has not yet announced if Hill will receive any type of suspension. Now you need laws telling us differently?
Other Twitter users, including former ESPN employees Britt McHenry and Curt Schilling, also chimed in.
It would have been nice to see ESPN support Hill for her very reasonable comments, but again, they are a business and it's not that odd for them to take a more neutral stance here.
According to the Washington Post, ESPN has fired people over posting controversial comments on social media comments. "That's it. And there are no other ways, as far as I'm concerned, to look at it, justify it, and there shouldn't be any reason not to say so".
Petitions are now circulating online for the dismissal of Hill from the network.
Hill now serves as a co-host for the show SC6 with Michael & Jemele.
Before this week, few sports fans in America knew who Jemele Hill was.
