A BAD DAY FOR JEMELE HILL

June 18, 2008

JEMELE HILL

It hasn’t been a very good 24 hours for ESPN columnist Jemele Hill. Not only have the Boston Celtics (whom she apparently despises) won an NBA championship, but now she’s been suspended for comments she wrote about the team.

ESPN has suspended Hill for comparing the Celtics to Hitler in a column she wrote online for espn.com.

 

“Rooting for the Celtics is like saying Hitler was a victim. It’s like hoping Gorbachev would get to the blinking red button before Reagan.”

An ESPN spokesman says,

“Jemele has been relieved of her writing and on-air responsibilities for a period of time to reflect on the impact of her words.”

Hill herself also issued an apology,

 

“In expressing my passion for the NBA and my hometown of Detroit I showed very poor judgment in the words I used.”

That’s not good enough for several Boston radio show hosts who are demanding that she be fired. They claim Hill is a hypocrite and point out that she was one of the loudest voices demanding that radio host Don Imus be fired after his offensive remarks last April.

In an 2007 article, following Imus’ “nappy-headed hos” comment, Hill wrote,

“He is routinely offensive…and if he needs to lose his job to understand that there is no place for that, so be it.”
