ESPN.com apologizes for writer’s Hitler-Celtics comparison

Boston Herald
ESPN.com’s Jemele Hill wrote that “rooting for the Celtics is like saying Hitler was a victim. It’s like hoping Gorbachev would get to the blinking red button before Reagan.” An ESPN.com statement says: “The column, as originally posted, made some absolutely unacceptable comparisons. We’ve spoken with Jemele, and she understands that she exercised poor judgment.” || Earlier Deadspin piece.
