A pair of ex-ESPNers still can’t get along even though neither of them works there any longer.

After Fox contributor Britt McHenry took shots at ESPN’s High Noon, Jemele Hill of The Atlantic accused her former Worldwide Leader co-worker of “racism” in a tweet.

On Instagram, McHenry took a shot at High Noon by saying the program – which is hosted by people of color Bomani Jones and Pablo Torre – is an example of ESPN prioritizing “filling demo’s over talent.”
