American sports journalist and co-host of ESPN’s flagship SportsCenter, Jemele Hill, has been suspended by ESPN for 2 weeks.

Apparently Jemele “violated social media guidelines” by encouraging people upset with Jerry Jones to boycott his sponsors.

Jemele took to Twitter and suggested that fans boycott Cowboys advertisers if they were upset Jerry Jones told his players they would stand for the national anthem or be benched:

“This play always work. Change happens when advertisers are impacted. If you feel strongly about JJ’s statement, boycott his advertisers.”

Hill was in the middle of an ESPN firestorm last month, when the White House called for her firing for calling President Trump a white supremacist on Twitter. ESPN had a sitdown meeting with her, where she apologized for the forum but not the message.
