Jemele Hill Suspended By ESPN Over Jerry Jones Tweets

ESPN has suspended “SportsCenter” anchor Jemele Hill for 2 weeks — after she “violated social media guidelines” by encouraging people upset with Jerry Jones to boycott his sponsors.

Hill was reacting to the Dallas Cowboys owners’ statement that any players who “disrespect the flag” will not play for his team.

“If you strongly reject what Jerry Jones said, the key is his advertisers. Don’t place the burden squarely on the players,” Hill tweeted.

She was suspended for two weeks Monday for violating the company’s social media policy for the second time, the company announced via Twitter.

Hill’s tweets came in the wake of owner Jerry Jones’ comments Sunday when he discouraged his players from protesting during the national anthem, saying they would not play if they did so.

After suspension she note that her tweets were not meant to encourage the act, but rather let people know there was an ally to try and cause change if they felt the need after Jones’ statement.
