Jemele Hill, with her strong liberal leaning opinions and racially motivated viewpoints, is one of ESPN’s most contested and controversial figures.
Hill, who’s active on social media, takes to Twitter regularly to voices her sentiments, a move that has landed her in hot water with her network before.
Last month, Hill ignited a backlash against herself and the network when she sent out inflammatory tweets regarding Donald Trump, calling the President a white supremacist, almost landing her with a suspension.
That suspension has now landed after Hill tweeted out her thoughts following the news that Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has made it mandatory that all players stand and respect the flag during the National Anthem, calling for a boycott of all Cowboys sponsors – the same sponsors who make ESPN money.
ESPN suspended the ‘Sportcenter’ host for two weeks in what they are calling a “second violation of our social media guidelines.”
ESPN released the following statement on the decision.
