The NBA star agrees with the #BoycottESPN hashtag.
Damian Lillard tweeted tonight that he agrees with a #BoycottESPN hashtag.
The NBA All-Star point guard, in the wake of the Jemele Hill situation at ESPN, responded to a conservative-leaning political commentator.
Lillard said he agrees with the #BoycottESPN hashtag, but not for the reason the commentator mentioned.
ESPN has previously fired conservatives for their views, but only gave Jemele Hill a slap on the wrist. Go figure. #BoycottESPN

You got the hashtag right … but these aren’t views… these are facts https://t.co/JHuHWnJ1jl

Lillard’s “these are facts” comment was likely aimed toward the tweets that got Hill in trouble in the first place. You can view those tweets here.
