BREAKING: ESPN Suspends Jemele Hill After Calling For NFL Advertiser Boycott
ESPN pundit, Jemele Hill was so upset that Jerry Jones warned Cowboys players to stand for the Anthem that she called for people to boycott his advertisers.
Liberals aren’t the sharpest tools in the shed. ESPN lives and dies by the NFL so Jemele Hill is telling people to boycott her own network.
As previously reported, the NFL already lost 2.5 million viewers.
After decades of American tradition of standing at attention during the National Anthem the National Football League started their own tradition last year and allowed players to kneel, sit, or stretch during the National Anthem today at professional football games.
A new shock poll reveals the NFL is now the least liked sport.
If you’re a Dallas Cowboys player and want to kneel during the National Anthem, don’t expect to play, warns owner Jerry Jones.
Fox News reports:
“I know this, we cannot … in the NFL in any way give the implication that we tolerate disrespecting the flag,” he said following the Cowboys’ 35-31 loss to the Green Bay Packers. “We know that there is a serious debate in this country about those issues, but there is no question in my mind that the National Football League and the Dallas Cowboys are going to stand up for the flag. So we’re clear.”
Jemele Hill took to her Twitter account to tell people to boycott Jerry Jones’ advertisers. How long is ESPN going to put up with this woman? She also called POTUS a white supremacist and only got a slap on the wrist for her statement.
This play always work. Change happens when advertisers are impacted. If you feel strongly about JJ's statement, boycott his advertisers. https://t.co/LFXJ9YQe74

Once again, ESPN exemplifies that they are a political organization disguised as a sports network.

“Jemele Hill has been suspended for two weeks for a second violation of our social media guidelines,” the network said in a statement. “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 much actions would have consequences,” the statement continued. “Hence this decision.”
