CNN's $300 million streaming service CNN+ has shut down just one month after it launched. The shut down comes after the streaming service failed to sign up more than 150,000 subscribers in 30 days.

Jemele Hill is among 300 CNN+ employees who are now out of work. The troubled sports journalist has a history of job suspensions and terminations due to her unsolicited opinions on social media.

Cari Champion, left, and Jemele, center, were hired by CNN+ in February to host a show about sports, entertainment, politics, etc.

Their show didn't even get a chance to air. CNN+ never put their show on the programming schedule.

A disappointed Jemele took to Twitter.com on Thursday to acknowledge people laughing at her expense:

"Some of y'all are going to try to get jokes off at my expense but I'm going to be fine — it's called a contract, learn about it. But there are people who are part of our show staff who do not have the same protection. Good people will be out of work. But go off tho."

CNN+ staffers were left furious and anxious after leaving their stable jobs to work for the streamer.

"Everyone is aghast and furious." a source told The New York Post.

"Many people left their stable jobs to go to CNN+ and then they pull it right after launch?" the source said.

"The big people will likely be saved, but what about everybody else, the people who do the real work?"

Veteran news journalist Sara Sidner moved from Los Angeles to NY for the opportunity to host her own show on CNN+.

"This is mind-blowing, to be perfectly honest," she tweeted on Thursday about CNN+'s demise.

She later tweeted: "It's over. It's been the shortest most amazing ride #CNNPlus team."

CNN's critics - including Donald Trump and Fox News - celebrated the failed venture.

The former president called CNN+ "an empty desert."

CNN has promised to place some of the unemployed in other positions within the organization. But Jemele probably won't be among them.

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.
