ESPN Suspends Jemele Hill Over Jerry Jones Tweets

After Jerry Jones made a statement that the Cowboys would not allow any player who “disrespect the flag” play, ESPN anchor Jemele Hill took to Twitter to give her opinion on the matter. Hill tweeted that her people should consider boycotting advertisers of the Dallas Cowboys owner after his policy to penalize players for kneelings.

ESPN has suspended Jemele for a second violation of the network’s social media guidelines on Monday (10/09).

“Jemele Hill has been suspended for two weeks for a second violation of our social media guidelines,” the network said in a statement. “She previously acknowledged letting her colleagues and company down with an impulsive tweet. In the aftermath, all employees were reminded of how individual tweets may reflect negatively on ESPN and that such actions would have consequences,” the statement continued. “Hence this decision.” Hill had previously come under fire for calling President Trump a “white supremacist.”

Hill recently received backlash after tweeting that President Trump is a “white supremacist.”
