Well it seems like the “Freedom of Speech” right only counts at certain times. When ESPN analyst Jamele Hill called Trump a white supremacist on twitter , I’m sure many of us felt that the comment would go viral but not that her job would be jeopardy. Since the tweet went out, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee said in a press conference ” I think that’s one of the more outrageous comments that anyone can make and certainly something I think is a fireable offense by ESPN.”
Jenele Hill responded via twitter “My comments on Twitter expressed my personal beliefs,” Hill’s statement reads. “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.” ESPN accepted her apology.
