#NaziBucketChallenge takes the Jemele Hill-Donald Trump Twitter fight to a new level

As the fervor over anti-Trump comments made by ESPN’s Jemele Hill continuing to grow, her supporters are taking to social media armed with an incendiary hashtag to show solidarity.

Borrowing from the charitable “Ice Bucket Challenge” meme of a few years back, Hill’s supporters are standing by her Trump tweets by using the hashtag “#NaziBucketChallenge.”

Of course, this being the Internet in 2017, those who disagreed with Hill’s comments, many of them Trump supporters, tried to hijack the hashtag because Twitter isn’t already enough of an echo chamber.

So what did Hill say Monday night that caused all this ruckus? She called Trump a white supremacist and “the most ignorant, offensive president of my lifetime.”

The backlash was immediate as Hill faced a barrage of abuse online. Then the White House got involved when Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders made a ridiculous statement about Hill’s comments and, even more galling, called on ESPN to fire her.

And, on Friday, our Tweeter-in-Chief finally got around to addressing the situation with a shot at ESPN where he thinks it counts (their ratings) though he didn’t mention Hill by name.

Meanwhile, ESPN was farting their way through a very clumsy response, forcing Hill to apologize and reportedly trying to pull her from the air after Sanders’ comments (and then later denying that). 

And, so, the controversy that has dragged ESPN kicking and screaming into the center of our political division looks to spin off into a second week which will surely lead us to a calm, peaceful resolution over an employer’s reach and freedom of speech.

Right?
