ESPN's Jemele Hill Suspended For 2 Weeks & Twitter Rightfully Blows Up: "YOU HAVE TO BE F&*!@#$G KID

  

ESPN personality Jemele Hill is feeling her company's wrath after receiving a two-week suspension for a social media violation. The popular sports show host finds herself in the hotseat after calling for a protest related to Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones.

According to an ESPN statement, Hill violated the company's social media guidelines.

"Jemele Hill has been suspended for two weeks for a second violation of our social media guidelines," ESPN 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 such actions would have consequences. Hence this decision." (Statement)

Last night, Jemele raised eyebrows after publicly calling out the Cowboys' ownership for telling players they couldn't disrespect the National Anthem.










The headline-generating punishment has already sparked some serious Twitter backlash.
















Jemele previously felt ESPN's wrath after publicly calling out President Donald Trump.

Hill had previously called President Donald Trump a "bigot" and "a white supremacist who has surrounded himself with other white supremacists" on Twitter. Trump demanded an apology for the "untruth" on Twitter, but ESPN decided not to suspend her at the time because of the context of the tweet according to CEO Bob Iger. Hill apologized to ESPN at the time for painting them in an "unfair light." (CNBC)
