Jemele Hill was suspended for two weeks over a string of tweets regarding the ongoing national anthem distraction and Jerry Jones's decision to bench any players who don't stand for the anthem.

One of the tweets as reported by TMZ:


If you strongly reject what Jerry Jones said, the key is his advertisers. Don't place the burden squarely on the players


TMZ - Jemele Hill Suspended By ESPN Over Jerry Jones Tweets


ESPN clearly feels Hill crossed the line and hit her with a 2 week suspension.

"Jemele Hill has been suspended for two weeks for a second violation of our social media guidelines," ESPN says.

"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."

Hill had been in hot water before after calling Donald Trump a "white supremacist."


I'm sure opinions will vary here. I personally see this differently from compelling civilians to perform patriotic displays in public on demand. I don't support that at although I do acknowledge the NFL team owners' legal rights to bench players if it's somehow covered by the player's contracts.

You don't screw with the money flow... she let her mouth get away from her brain and is paying the price for it.

Twitter can suspend whomever they wish but why do you think they should suspend her account?

She'll make a bunch speaking on the side come back it two weeks and see if she can out stupid herself. Vegas would give good odds on that.

A black radical couldn't hold her tongue because she is caught up in the atmosphere her fake news media surroundings provide.

Makes sense considering she wants to boycott advertisers that help pay her own salary.

I imagine she knew when she did it that she was risking a suspension. Agree with her not, if she knew the stakes and felt that saying what she wanted to say was worth the risk, that's a reasoned decision not poor impulse control.

You are giving her far too much credit.

Yea Bill Simmons:




Back in 2014, ESPN suspended Bill Simmons for criticizing NFL commissioner Roger Goodell. The following year his contract was not renewed by the network.

People gotta realize that if you're in a high profile job, anything you say publicly is going to reflect back on your employer and get you in deep water. I can't say for sure about ESPN, but many employers these days have a strict policy on posting via social media anything that has to do with your place of employment.

One of my kids got a PT job at McD's and even they stated that posting about the company is a violation of the job contract and will get you fired.

Also as stated already, pretty stupid to bring in a threat of ad loss when it's those ad dollars keeping her employed.

If she was white and saying things that agreed with your bizarre extremist worldview, you'd elect her President.

I don't think Twitter should suspend her account however I think she needs to realize her tweets have an effect on her professional life....a lesson she is currently in the middle of.

Irony is too big of a word for some to understand....Same as hypocrisy.
