Jemele Hill And Cari Champion Double Down And Defend Bizarre “Was It Racist To Knock Out Nate Robinson” Question To Jake Paul

Jemele Hill and Cari Champion have found themselves in the middle of a controversy regarding their interview with Jake Paul and they’ve come out to defend themselves.

Last week, Paul was a guest on Hill and Champion’s late-night Vice TV show ‘Stick To Sports’ and they asked him if it was “racist’ for him to knock out Jake Paul.

Both former ESPNers were immediately blasted by the Internet for asking the question which many felt was inappropriate.

On Wednesday both Hill and Champion took to Twitter to defend their question to Paul. The two hosts explained that they were surprised by the backlash because they were clearly just joking.

People didn’t seem to think the “joke” was funny and continued to pile on.
