Before I get into this I just want to say that I think Jemele Hill is a bit hypocritical and just plain dumb for her "Celtics-Hitler" line. With that said.... this stunt by WBCN in Boston has gotten a tad out of hand. The station is sending two people to ESPN to protest and their website has even published her address and phone number....
Fred:Come on people. I know that you're mad she bashed your team but seriously....everyone just calm down. She made a dumb joke and asking for her head is only going to make her appear on ESPN more. And also.....making a dumb, senseless comparison just isn't the same as racially degrading an entire team of women (in Imus' case). There are reports that she's getting harassing calls and even death threats, so it might be time to put an end to this Boston.
"Jemele Hill wrote an an article for ESPN.COM's page two comparing rooting for Celtics to rooting for Hitler. The article was promptly edited by espn.com. This is the same woman who called for the firing of Don Imus after his remarks on the Rutgers women's basketball team. This hypocrisy cannot be ignored. Please call for Ms. Hill's firing."
Right now, Intern Nick and Adolfo are on their way to ESPN headquarters in Connecticut.
CONTACT ESPN and let them know Jemele should be fired!
Comment: She picked up the last number.. 7Mile Scribe Inc 19731 Glen Elm Way, Orlando, FL 32833 (321)251-XXXX (321)251-XXXX (877)259-XXXX
She's been suspended (although there are rumors to the contrary), so just let it pass. I posted the address so all of you industrious folks can write her a letter but "X"ed out the phone numbers. If you're really vindictive and care to call....they're in the link below, but seriously....let's just move on shall we?
