Jemele Hill has been suspended for two weeks by ESPN for a tweet about Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones. ESPN cited the reason for suspension as “violating the network’s social media guidelines.”
The co-host of the 6 p.m. Sports Center in a tweet said her followers should consider boycotting advertisers of Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones after Jones threatened to bench any player who kneels during the national anthem.
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
