Twitter has been attacking Trump with the #NaziBucketChallenge
President Trump is at the center of yet another social media storm.
ESPN SportsCenter anchor Jemele Hill caused a stir on Monday when she called Trump a "white supremacist" and a "bigot" on Twitter -- Trump himself responded with demands for an apology.
And White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders even called for the anchor to be fired. But many Twitter users are now stepping in to defend Hill, using a new hashtag: #NaziBucketChallenge.
Here's how it goes: Users share a little bit of their own life story of where they're from and what they do.
And they end with a statement echoing Jemele Hill's claims: Calling Trump a white supremacist. The hashtag has grown enormously in popularity and is now trending on Twitter. However, ESPN did issue a statement saying that Hill's political views do not reflect those of the network.
