Jemele Hill confirms her ESPN exit, says she's now free to curse out her haters
“Over the last several weeks, there have been a lot of rumors about my job status,” Hill said in a statement posted to Twitter this morning. "Today is my last day at ESPN.” ESPN executive vice president Connor Schell praised Hill as “an exceptionally talented writer, storyteller host and commentator whose unique voice has made ESPN’s many platforms better over the last 12 years." Hill made headlines a year ago when she called President Trump a white supremacist, which resulted in her denunciation from the White House and the president himself. Now that Hill no longer represents ESPN and Disney, she says she's free to curse out her detractors. When one person on Twitter disparaged her, Hill responded: "I feel like i need to say this now as a warning. I was going out of my way not to cuss some of y’all out because I had a job and a corporation to represent. But now, I don’t have one. So I’m good with calling you a f*ckboi."
