Jemele Hill still feels some kind of way about losing her highly visible job at ESPN.
On Wednesday, she joined former First Take host Cari Champion in bashing former First Take analyst Skip Bayless.
The two women were promoting their new TV show, Cari and Jemele: Stick to Sports, on Vice TV. But, judging from Hill’s past, it’s doubtful she will stick to sports.
Hill, 44, wrote a column for ESPN2 and previously co-host His & Hers with Michael Smith.
She also made regular appearances on SportsCenter, ESPN First Take, Outside the Lines and The Sports Reporters.
But Hill couldn’t keep her personal beliefs separate from her profession, which caused problems with the higher ups at ESPN.
During the 2008 NBA Playoffs, Hill was suspended after referencing Adolf Hitler in an article.
But she really irked her superiors on September 11, 2017 when she wrote a series of tweets referring to President Donald Trump as a “white supremacist.”
ESPN issued a statement about Hill’s comments, saying they “do not represent the position of ESPN. We have addressed this with Jemele and she recognizes her actions were inappropriate.”
Hill apologized after realizing her value as a Black female sportscaster was rapidly shrinking.
“My regret is that my comments and the public way I made them painted ESPN in an unfair light,” she said.
A month later, ESPN suspended Hill for two weeks for a “second violation of our social media guidelines”.
In January 2018, she was demoted to a writer’s position at The Undefeated, ESPN’s website.
In October 2018, The Atlantic announced Hill was joining the magazine as a staff writer.
Hill’s dramatic fall from grace was complete.
