ESPN Suspends Jemele Hill Over Social Media Use

Cable sports network ESPN on Monday suspended broadcaster Jemele Hill for two weeks for violating its social media guidelines after she tweeted about ongoing National Football League player protests.

"Jemele Hill has been suspended for two weeks for a second violation of our social media guidelines", the network said in a statement.

Hill's tweets came in response to Jones' announcement that any Cowboys players that do not stand for the National Anthem will not be permitted to take the field. Hill said that "Jerry Jones also has created a problem for his players, specifically the black ones". Jemele Hill called the president of the United States a "white supremacist" on Twitter. Change happens when advertisers are impacted. "If you feel strongly about JJ's statement, boycott his advertiser", Hill tweeted on Sunday with a link to a tweet featuring several of the Cowboys' advertisers. Instead, she notes that fans that are upset by Jones' controversial comments can take action in responsible ways.
