Jemele Hill Suspended Two Weeks for Social Media Violation

Jemele Hill Suspended Two Weeks for Social Media Violation

ESPN suspended "SportsCenter" anchor Jemele Hill for two weeks on Monday, the network announced, after Hill violated the company's social media guidelines over the weekend.

Hill graduated from Michigan State University and served as the grand marshall for MSU during its homecoming back in 2014.

"Change happens when advertisers are impacted", Hill tweeted. On Sunday, Jones said that any Cowboys player who did not stand for the national anthem would not be allowed to play. Hill said that "Jerry Jones also has created a problem for his players, specifically the black ones. If you feel strongly about JJ's statement, boycott his advertisers". Instead, she notes that fans that are upset by Jones' controversial comments can take action in responsible ways.

"In the aftermath, all employees were reminded of how individual tweets may reflect negatively on ESPN and that such actions would have consequences". A source close to the situation characterized the decision for Smith to sit out the telecast as a mutual one made by him and ESPN.

The White House, meanwhile, believed her tweet about the President was a "fireable offense". She previously acknowledged letting her colleagues and company down with an impulsive tweet.

"Donald Trump is a white supremacist who has largely surrounded himself w/ other white supremacists", Hill tweeted. His rise is a direct result of white supremacy. Hill was not suspended.

"Because if we did everything the boss said, Americans would still be dying of tuberculosis in factories", she replied. Hill apologized to ESPN at the time for painting them in an "unfair light".
