In a number of tweets on September 11, Hill slammed Trump as "unfit, bigoted [and] incompetent".
"Donald Trump is a white supremacist who has largely surrounded himself w/ other white supremacists", she wrote.
"If I said anything of equivalency to Obama, I would have been gone much sooner than I was", tweeted out former ESPN staffer Britt McHenry, who has previously accused the network of laying her off for her conservative politics.
"She recognizes her actions were inappropriate", ESPN said in a statement. I don't know how people who voted for Donald Trump can feel comfortable at all watching ESPN when they know the values that that network espouses and they know how unwelcome their own values are.
"ESPN also faced flak for letting their sports anchors air political views".
Free agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick stood behind Hill after the comments, writing: "We are with you @jemelehill".
"If you're a Republican or conservative, you feel the need to talk in whispers", one conservative ESPN employee said.
Brian Flood covers the media for Fox News. Cord-cutting and unbundling has had an impact, no doubt.
"Sports have always been political", she said.
But so has the network going way left and political as a whole.
Regardless of your stance on Trump, Hill's comments are far more harsh and far less professional than anything Cohn has done.
Hill has been with ESPN since 2006 and has co-hosted the 6 p.m. broadcast of SportsCenter alongside Michael Smith since February.
Hill was suspended for a week in 2008 after writing in a column that "rooting for the Celtics is like saying Hitler was a victim". Early on Tuesday, ESPN released the second installment of their player rankings which had Carmelo Anthony ranked 64th, behind the likes of Eric Gordon, Robert Covington and Lonzo Ball - the rookie who hasn't even suited up for a game yet.
