ESPN anchor Jemele Hill, has been suspended for two weeks by ESPN for a “second violation of our social media guidelines,” according to a statement released earlier today (October 9th).
The previous night, Hill posted the following tweets, after Jerry Jones forced his players to stand during the national anthem, threatening to bench them:
Hill was certainly right about forecast over the following 24 hours. Many perceived the tweets to be encouraging a boycott of the Dallas Cowboys, but Hill clarified her tweets today on her Twitter page.
ESPN were quick to suspend her following these tweets. The first "violation" they were referring to were the tweets in which Hill called Trump a "white supremacist."
However people feel about her using her platform to voice her opinions, Hill spoke nothing but truth in those social media posts. We stand with her!
