Al to ESPN: Do Not firE hEr
ESPN will take a major league hit in the ratings if the network bows to White House pressure to fire Jemele Hill, the Rev. Al Sharpton said on Saturday. “If ESPN violates her rights, then we will exercise our rights,” Sharpton told the crowd at his National Action Network headquarters in Harlem, according to CBS New York. The sports broadcasting company has faced criticism from the Trump administration after Hill, who is black, called the President a white supremacist on Twitter. ESPN distanced itself from Hill’s remarks, but has made no move to dismiss her after White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders called her comments a fireable offense. Sharpton said the White House response has been out of line. “To terminate her based on intimidation from the White House is unacceptable,” he said.
