Jemele Hill's ESPN Co-Workers Clapped Back At Trump For Criticizing Her

"Stop attacking our colleague Jemele Hill."

Published October 11, 2017

ESPN suspending Jemele Hill for two weeks over a second violation of its social media guidelines drew the ire of plenty of people who believe that the company made a retroactive decision for her originally calling President Trump a "white supremacist" last month.

That outrage was only doused with more fire when Trump decided to attack the SportsCenter co-host the very next morning, tweeting, "with Jemele Hill at the mike, it is no wonder ESPN ratings have tanked, in fact, tanked so badly it is the talk of the industry!"

Well, just as swiftly as people dragged the celebrity-in-chief over the tweet, several of Hill's ESPN co-workers went to bat to slam Trump in defense of their esteemed colleague.

  1. Josina Anderson flat out told trump to stop attacking jemele hill

    You heard her.

  2. Michelle Beadle took it a step further, pointing out that Trump shouldn't be talking about ratings, while correcting his misspelling of 'mic'

    She got him all the way together with these tweets.

  3. Fellow SportsCenter co-host Cari Champion simply let Jemele know 'I love you'

    Sometimes that's all that's needed in a messed up time like this.

  4. Jalen Rose let Jemele know that she's family

    And First Take moderator Molly Qerim re-tweeted it.

  5. Marc Spears Re-tweeted flattering content about Jemele before posting Eminem's Trump-Destroying Cypher from the BET Hip Hop Awards

    We hear you.

  6. After getting suspended and reading Trump's tweet, Jemele Hill showed plenty of love toward her SportsCenter co-host, Michael Smith, who sat out from the show Monday and hosted by himself Tuesday

    Now, that's love.
