Jemele Hill Suspended
The host of ESPN’s SportsCenter, Jemele Hill, has been suspended by the network they say for violating their social media policy. After the Dallas Cowboys’ owner,Jerry Jones, said Sunday that he would bench any players who “disrespect the flag,” Hill suggested on Twitter that fans who disagreed with Jones’ stance should boycott Cowboys advertisers. “Change happens when advertisers are impacted,” she wrote. “If you feel strongly about JJ’s statement, boycott his advertisers.” Jones, the married millionaire who was caught receiving oral sex in a bathroom from two strippers, didn’t seem to mind those women taking a knee. Last month, Hill called Trump a white supremacist, prompting the White House to call for her firing, and just this morning, Trump attacked her and ESPN on Twitter. She will not appear on television for the next two weeks. A spokesman for the company declined to say which specific guideline she had violated or whether she would be paid during the suspension.
