The ESPN host wanted to speak out about how the comments she made were her own opinion.

She also talked about how she respects her ESPN family and apologized for putting them in an “unfair light.”

According to the Huffington Post, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders released a statement saying that Hill’s message was “a fireable offense.”

ESPN followed up with there own statement saying, “Jemele has a right to her personal opinions, but not to publicly share them on a platform that implies that she was in any way speaking on behalf of ESPN. She has acknowledged that her tweets crossed that line and has apologized for doing so. We accept her apology.”

Although some believed that Hill should be fired for the comments she made, many fans backed her up, including former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick.
