Social Media Erupts Over Alleged Transphobic Comment From Jemele Hill (TWEETS)
One look on Twitter and you’ll see that social media is currently trying to cancel Jemele Hill just one day after she went after Barstool Sports and their alleged racists acts.
It started with a video emerging on Twitter of Dave Portnoy, Kevin ‘KFC’ Clancy and Dan ‘Big Cat’ Katz discussing Colin Kaepernick, Arabs and Palestinians.
Hill decided to comment on the video with a dig at Portnoy and his team.
“This is terrible, but then again, consider the source,” she wrote.
Portnoy responded by retweeting a screenshot tweet that appears to have come from Hill that some have described as transphobic.
“My FB friends are calling him ‘Manny the tranny’ … so inappropriate and hilarious,” the tweet reads.
Hill would soon address it:
Social media wasn’t having it as the hashtag #CancelJemele got trending pretty quickly.
Only time will tell if there is any significant backlash towards Hill.
