ESPN Suspends Jemele Hill, Trump Gloats On Twitter (Video)

ESPN has suspended host Jemele Hill for what it said was a second violation of the network’s social media guidelines on Monday. Hill in a tweet said her followers should consider boycotting advertisers of Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones after Jones threatened to bench any player who kneels during the national anthem.

 

“Jemele Hill has been suspended for two weeks for a second violation of our social media guidelines,” the network said in a statement. “She previously acknowledged letting her colleagues and company down with an impulsive tweet.” … ESPN’s decision reflects the close financial partnership the network has with the NFL. The sports network pays the football league close to $2 billion annually to broadcast “Monday Night Football,” a deal renewed in 2011 and good through 2021, and has suspended prominent employees in the past for speaking out against top figures in the NFL.”* Read more here: http://thehill.com/homenews/media/354…
