Jemele Hill Suspended By ESPN Over Social Media
Jemele Hill has been suspended by ESPN. The suspension was announced on Monday. The network said in a statement,
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.
Last month, Hill referred to President Trump a “white supremacist” on Twitter. It is unclear which of her tweets the network was referencing when it decided to take action and suspend the anchor.
