ESPN host Jemele Hill, who stirred controversy after tweeting that President Donald Trump is a “white supremacist” unfit to serve in the White House, she said I “deserved” her two-week suspension from the network for violating social media policy.
But Hill also said she’ll “never take back what I said.”
“I deserved a suspension. I violated policy,” Hill told during an impromptu interview at the Los Angeles International Airport. “Going forward we’ll be in a good, healthy place.”
She added: “I would tell people, absolutely, after my Donald Trump tweets, I deserved that suspension. I deserved it. Like, absolutely. I violated the policy.”
But Hill also said she’d only apologize for putting “ESPN in a bad spot,” not for what she said.
