ESPN Releases Statement In Response to Jemele Hill’s Anti-Trump Tweets

The United States is currently in one of its most fragile states of all time. Hatred is at an all-time high and many do not agree with the legislation President Donald Trump has implemented.

ESPN personality Jemele Hill has now joined the conversation which has sparked some controversy. Hill criticized Trump for being a white supremacist and followed that up by saying he was not fir to be president.

ESPN released a statement addressing their stance on this issue.

Hill’s tweets:

Of course, Hill has the right to voice her opinion in any way that she wants to. Anyone that says she doesn’t, is completely wrong. She is using ESPN as a platform to get her political views across to her viewers and/or followers.

The question that arises is whether or not ESPN should allow her to tweet like this. While everyone has the right to free speech, there have been cases in the past where businesses have limited free speech and have the law backing them in doing so.

This however, does not seem like too severe or a situation where it would have to reach that point.
