Karma? Anti-Trump ESPN Host Is OUT!

ESPN host Jemele Hill has been removed from her hosting position and will be transferred to a new position within the network.

Hill has made headlines over the last few months with explicitly anti-Trump remarks and sentiments. She was suspended as a result of the comments.

Per Fox News:

Outspoken liberal Jemele Hill will no longer host ESPN’s flagship “SportsCenter,” ESPN insiders have confirmed to Fox News. She will be re-assigned to a new role at The Undefeated, the company’s site that covers the intersections of sports and race, according to Sports Illustrated.

The controversial Hill famously called President Trump a “white supremacist” on Twitter last year. ESPN initially declined to punish her but then sidelined her for two weeks in October when she violated the company’s social media guidelines a second time by calling on fans to  boycott the Dallas Cowboys’ advertisers after owner Jerry Jones told players they would be benched if they did not stand up during the national anthem.

According to the report, her demotion was a result of “collapsing ratings.” Some other reports say Hill personally requested the move.

Here’s more:

Several ESPN insiders have told Fox News that the move was Hill’s choice, but sports talk radio host Clay Travis tweeted that she was “booted” due to “collapsing ratings.”

Travis has been in front of all-things Hill and recently speculated that she would be removed from “SportsCenter.” Sports Illustrated media guru Richard Deitsch predicted that Hill’s “tenure as a SportsCenter anchor” was “effectively over” back in October of 2017.

Here’s even more on Hill:

The polarizing Hill, 42, once blamed her troubles on media members who accuse ESPN of being too liberal for combing through her Twitter replies, looking for anti-Trump comments that would quickly became national news.

“Donald Trump is a white supremacist who has surrounded himself with other white supremacists,” Hill wrote on Sept 11. She called him “the most ignorant, offensive president of my lifetime.”

According to the report, Hill called Trump a “bigot,” “unqualified and unfit to be president,” and said, “If he were not white, he never would have been elected.”
