ESPN Suspends Jemele Hill

Jemele Hill has been suspended for a ‘second violation’ of ESPN’s social media guidelines. In a statement released Monday, ESPN says all employees were reminded of how individual tweet may reflect negatively of their organization.

 

Her two-week suspension comes a month after a Twitter rant calling President Trump a “white supremacist“. Monday, Hill made comments about boycotting NFL sponsors.

 

 

 

Fox News calls Jemele Hill an “anti-Trump ESPN Host“, no surprise there. Hill suggested followers should consider boycotting advertisers of the NFL after Dallas Cowboys owner threatened to punish players who kneeled during the national anthem.

Unfortunately, this story will overshadow Vice President Pence’s alleged political stunt/protest and the taxpayer money associated with his travel. Let’s not forget, there was another torch-carrying “rally” in Charlottesville this weekend.
