ESPN host Jemele Hill has been suspended for two weeks after she recommended fans boycott Dallas Cowboys head coach Jerry Jones and NFL sponsors. ESPN is showing a strong stance on those who may risk its financial stability.
ESPN released the following statement:
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 individual tweets may reflect negatively on ESPN and that such actions would have consequences. Hence this decision.
It didn’t take long but the Twitterverse to start blaming racism for the suspension either.
So ESPN suspends Jemele Hill. Now if you don’t think theres a war on African Americans in this country. You’re living under a rock.
