ESPN's Jemele Hill, has been suspended by her workplace for a violation over company social media policy. Hill, who had recently deemed President Trump a "white supremacist" on Twitter, apparently fired off something that got the attention of the network. The tweet that she got suspended for, is below.
"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 says on an ESPN statement.
Just so we're clear: I'm not advocating a NFL boycott. But an unfair burden has been put on players in Dallas & Miami w/ anthem directives.— Jemele Hill (@jemelehill) October 9, 2017
