BRISTOL, Conn. — ESPN has suspended host Jemele Hill for two weeks because of “a second violation of our social media guidelines,” the network announced Monday afternoon.
On Sunday, Hill tweeted that people who disagree with Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones’ decision to bench players who kneel during the anthem should consider boycotting the team’s advertisers.
On Monday, she tweeted a clarification.
“Just so we’re clear: I’m not advocating a NFL boycott,” she said. “But an unfair burden has been put on players in Dallas & Miami w/ anthem directives. If fans really are that upset about what JJ & Stephen Ross have done, don’t call the players sellouts, but you’re watching every Sunday.”AlertMe
