ESPN host Jemele Hill posted a series of anti-Trump messages on Twitter earlier this week, in which she called President Trump a white supremacist for his many acts of hate and offensive rhetoric.

Hill’s twitter mentions have been on fire ever since her comments, including messages from Trump supports who have called on ESPN to fire her.

On Tuesday, ESPN issued an apology on her behalf that reads,

“The comments on Twitter from Jemele Hill regarding the President do not represent the position of ESPN. We have addressed this with Jemele and she recognizes her actions were inappropriate.”

While Jemele Hill received plenty of backlash for her remarks, she was also praised for speaking out.

Colin Kaepernick, Dwayne Wade, Charlamagne the God, and Gabrielle Union, all applauded Hill in wake of the spineless apology from ESPN last night.

Check out their comments below.

Hill joined ESPN as a national columnist in 2006. She became co-anchor of ESPN’s SportsCenter after various roles with the network.
