Jemele Hill is standing by her words.

The ESPN anchor tweeted Wednesday that her only regret is the way her comments cast her employer in “an unfair light.” 

Hill, who co-hosts “SC6” with Michael Smith, used Twitter on Monday to call President Trump a white supremacist who “largely surrounded himself with other white supremacists.” She also said Trump was the most ignorant, offensive president of her lifetime. 

The comments sparked backlash, including from the White House, where press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders called it a “fireable offense.”
