Jemele Hill: I Deserved To Be Suspended by ESPN
Jemele Hill feels that her suspension was 100% warranted from ESPN. As you know, the sports commentator was suspended for two weeks by the network over her social media use. Hill, who returns to ESPN on Monday, says of her suspension:
I put ESPN in a bad spot. I deserved a suspension. I violated the policy. Going forward we’ll be in a good healthy place.
I don’t feel suppressed. I love ESPN as much as ever. I am okay. I feel good.
As previously reported, earlier this month, ESPN announced Hill was suspended for a “second violation of our social media guidelines”. Hill suggested fans upset with Jerry Jones’s threat (to bench any player who does “anything that is disrespectful to the flag”) should boycott the advertisers who support Jones and the Dallas Cowboys.
See her tweets below which are said to have caused the suspension.
