Journalist Jemele Hill had a racial conniption fit Tuesday evening as election results for President Trump rolled in.

The former ESPN host, who is known for calling Mr. Trump a “white supremacist,” lashed out as key states appeared to trend in the Republican’s favor.

“If Trump wins reelection, it’s on white people,” she warned. “No one else.”



The tweet was shared over 12,000 times, often by individuals who noted the highly diverse coalition of Americans supporting Mr. Trump.

“In 2020, holding white folks accountable for their racism is considered a threat,” she responded.

She also shared a user’s stance that pollsters faltered because they don’t have “an algorithm for racism.”

“This part,” Ms. Hill concurred.

The former “SportsCenter” with Michael Smith host first made anti-Trump waves in 2017. Although she was was not disciplined at the time by the network, another controversy followed soon afterward when issues surrounding the American flag prompted her to call for an advertising boycott of the Dallas Cowboys.

Ms. Hill left ESPN in 2018 and now hosts the “Jemele Hill is Unbothered” podcast on Spotify.
