Earlier this week, Jemele Hill, a SportsCenter anchor, posted a tweet speaking out about how she feels President Donald Trump is a white supremacist.

This tweet made a lot of people angry. Hill was undeterred, clapping back at those criticizing her views.





On Tuesday, ESPN released a statement via Twitter condemning Hill for her comments. The network explained that Hill's feelings did not match its feelings on the matter.

The statement also mentions that Hill was reprimanded, and that "she recognizes her actions were inappropriate."



Black Twitter was taken aback by ESPN's statement, and wasted no time running to Hill's defense.








On the other side of the debate are the president's supporters, many of whom are proposing a possible boycott of the network until Hill is fired.

ESPN has not addressed these calls for Hill's firing, however.
