BREAKING: Jemele Hill suspended for two weeks-

A company review is underway about her social media standpoints and berating of ESPN customers online:



FOX NEWS:


Jemele Hill, an ESPN anchor who called for fans to boycott the NFL, has been suspended for two weeks by the network.

Hill, who called President Trump a “white supremacist” on Twitter last month violated the company’s social media guidelines for a second time by calling on fans to take indirect action against the Dallas Cowboys after owner Jerry Jones told players they would be benched if they didn't stand up during the national anthem.

 “Change happens when advertisers are impacted,” Hill wrote. “If you strongly reject what Jerry Jones said, the key is his advertisers.”


Hill wasn’t formally punished for mocking Trump on Twitter, but ESPN took action when she called for fans to boycott the Cowboys’ advertisers.  


‘Jemele Hill has been suspended for two weeks for a second violation of our social media guidelines. She previously acknowledged letting her colleagues and company down with an impulsive tweet. In the aftermath, all employees were reminded of how much individual tweets may reflect negatively on ESPN and that such action would have consequences. Hence this decision,” an ESPN spokesman said in a statement.
