ESPN suspends Jemele Hill for social media 'violation'

"Jemele Hill has been suspended for two weeks for a second violation of our social media guidelines", ESPN said in a statement.

Hill graduated from Michigan State University and served as the grand marshall for MSU during its homecoming back in 2014.

World champs Brazil pip Euro holders Spain 2-1
Brazil's surged through at the Spanish goal with a rage - slicing through the midfield and finding their men up front. Brazil have won it three times while Spain , though three-time finalists, are yet to win.

"Jemele Hill has been suspended for two weeks for a second violation of our social media guidelines", the network said in a statement.

Last week, Hill penned an essay for The Undefeated in which she expressed regret for letting her employers and co-workers down with her previous controversial tweets. If you feel strongly about JJ's statement, boycott his advertisers.' She had a couple of other tweets that addressed the situation. Change happens when advertisers are impacted. But Hill stood by her tweets, which included one that read, "Trump is the most ignorant, offensive president of my lifetime". On Sunday, she took to Twitter again to make further politically charged comments about Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones. In the aftermath, all employees were reminded of how individual tweets may reflect negatively on ESPN and that such action would have consequences.

As well as being a fine player, Alli has caught the eye of Barcelona because of the price that Tottenham would want for him. They are therefore focusing attentions on Alli, according to Spanish media outlet Sport .

Hill had previously run afoul of network executives in September after she tweeted President Donald Trump was a "white supremacist".

Hill, a rising star at ESPN, has been vociferously critical of President Trump all year long, but her tweetstorm on Monday went further than ever.

White House "Calm Before The Storm" Explanation Comes Up Short
As soon as the president put on the accent, the first lady, standing at his side, glared at the back of his head. ISIS? North Korea? Iran? On this week's episode of So You Think You Can President? we're left with a cliffhanger.

Hill, an African American woman, followed up with this: "His rise is a direct result of white supremacy". But Hill's tweets caught fire on social media, partly due to the ongoing arguments over ESPN's political posture.
