Colin Kaepernick is on Jemele Hill‘s side.
The former NFL quarterback took to Twitter late Tuesday to show support for Jemele Hill and her tweet calling President Trump a “white supremacist.”
“We are with you @jemelehill,“ Kaepernick wrote.
ESPN big wigs were not as pleased with Hill’s tweet, in which she also wrote that Trump “has largely surrounded himself w/other white supremacists.”

“The comments on Twitter from Jemele Hill regarding the President do not represent the position of ESPN,” the network said. “We have addressed this with Jemele and she recognizes her actions were inappropriate.”
Regardless of ESPN’s disavowal, NBA Hall of Famer and basketball analyst for the TNT network added his own Twitter support for Hill onTuesday night.
The co-host of SportsCenter made the comments about Trump during a string of tweets regarding musician Kid Rock and his potential senate run in Michigan.
Hill has not been disciplined by ESPN yet, though the network has a history of seriously reprimanding employees who openly share their thoughts on politics.
