Jemele Hill suspended

From foxnews.com:

Quote:
Jemele Hill, the controversial ESPN anchor who called for fans to boycott the NFL after labeling President Trump a “white supremacist” on Twitter, has been suspended for two weeks by the network.

Hill violated the company’s social media guidelines a second time, according to ESPN, after she called on fans to take indirect action against the Dallas Cowboys after owner Jerry Jones told players they would be benched if they didn't stand up during the national anthem.

“Change happens when advertisers are impacted,” Hill wrote. “If you strongly reject what Jerry Jones said, the key is his advertisers.”

Hill wasn’t formally punished for mocking Trump on Twitter, but ESPN took action when she called for fans to boycott the Cowboys’ advertisers. 

“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 much individual tweets may reflect negatively on ESPN and that such action would have consequences. Hence this decision,” an ESPN spokesman said in a statement.

In response, Hill's co-host on “SC6,” Michael Smith, chose to sit out Monday night's broadcast, in a “mutual” decision with ESPN, The Wrap reported.

Other supporters of Hill said they were outraged. Rev. Al Sharpton said the suspension “should NOT go unanswered. ESPN and advertisers will hear from us!”

Jones issued his edict before the Cowboys' game Sunday against the Green Bay Packers. It came after amid a backlash against players “taking a knee” during the national anthem, driven in part by President Trump's angry denouncement of what some players called legitimate social protest.

Sweet! The ABW finally gets punished. She should have been fired a long time ago.

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is perfectly within his rights to dictate to his players how to act during the national anthem. More owners should muster the courage to follow his lead.

She should have been fired, but imagine how over the top you are when even America's newest leftwing institution, ESPN, gives you a slap on the wrist.

I wonder if Aaron Rodgers brought that little snowflake Jerry Jones to his knees after that game winning touchdown pass.  Grin Grin Grin

They never realized the depth of the Black Activist's reach into the business of American sports.  Just as the Rainbow Coalition and Race Baiter's like Sharptan and Jesse Jackson have cut their teeth at shakedown American corporations (pay up or get called "RACIST") NOW, Black players are n=more interested in activism and black news people are interested in the same thing and not interested in doing their jobs!


Opinions are like assholes; everyone's got one.  These Assholes are using their employer's soapboxes and spotlight to conduct their political stunts! 

It's all BLACKMAIL! ~and it's going to have a Blacklash!
