According to TMZ, ESPN has suspended “SportsCenter: Six” host Jemele Hill for the next two weeks. She has violated the company’s social media guidelines once again.
This time, she encouraged her followers to be upset with Jerry Jones, the Dallas Cowboys owner, who recently came out and said all of his players must stand for the national anthem. If not, they would be fired.
Hill suggested the boycott, which would hit Jones in his pocket.

“If you strongly reject what Jerry Jones said, the key is his advertisers,” she said. “Don’t place the burden squarely on the players.”
This is the second-time that Hill has had a run-in with her company over her Tweets. She also called our President Donald Trump a ‘White Supremacist.’
She was basically given a slap on the wrist for that comment before taking it overboard with these comments. Yet, while she has gotten away with social media comments, former ESPN employees, especially Curt Schilling, were fired because of their sentiment on the social media platform.

“Jemele Hill has been suspended for two weeks for a second violation of our social media guidelines,” ESPN said. “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 action would have consequences. Hence this decision.”
