SportsCenter Anchor's Tweets Calling Trump a White Supremacist Were 'Inappropriate'

Jemele Hill of "SportsCenter" tweeted that "Donald Trump is a white supremacist who has largely surrounded himself w/ other white supremacists".

After support and a bunch of backlash on social media, the Worldwide leader in Sports felt they needed to address the situation and released a statement on Tuesday condemning the comments made by their employee.

Hill, a co-host of "SC6", which airs daily on ESPN at 5 p.m. CT, went on a Twitter rant Monday that started by calling Kid Rock a racist and followed that with several directed at Trump.

An ESPN host with a history of stirring up controversy lashed out at Donald Trump in a series of Twitter posts on Monday, calling the president a "white supremacist" who is unfit to serve in the White House. The topic of the tweets quickly shifted to white supremacy.
