ESPN is getting thoroughly dragged after condemning and distancing itself from its own employee, SportsCenter co-host Jemele Hill, after she blasted President Trump and labeled him a "white supremacist" in a series of tweets earlier this week.
Colin Kaepernick knows was it's like to be silenced after his 2016 season-long kneeling during the national anthem as a protest against racism and police brutality of unarmed Black men. So, last night, the woke free-agent QB took to his Twitter to offer his support to Jemele.
Here's Jemele's tweets taking aim at the Celebrity-in-Chief, ESPN's official statement and people, including Kaep, coming to her defense. Not on our watch, ESPN.
Talk to 'em!
What exactly did Jemele say that wasn't true? We mean, Trump didn't denounce the KKK's support during his presidential campaign and let's not forget his infamous "both sides" to blame reaction following the terrorist attack from white supremacists in Charlottesville.
ESPN, you're gonna learn today.
For real! Is Trump not the most divisive president in history already?
What would be dope is if Jemele interviewed Kaep.
Stop it, bruh.
This isn't the first time, and probably won't be the last, that Jason Whitlock manages to irk people.
ESPN did this to itself.
