Monday afternoon, ESPN announced they have suspended host Jemele Hill for two weeks due to “a second violation of our social media guidelines” for a series of tweets of her opinion on the President’s involvement in recent NFL news.
In response to Jerry Jone’s responses to Donald Trump stating that any player on the Cowboys team who kneels in protest (which is a constitutional right) will not play, Hill took to Twitter with her opinions on the matter:
45th President responded with this, “With Jemele Hill at the mike, it is no wonder ESPN ratings have “tanked,” in fact, tanked so badly it is the talk of the industry!”
We see which side ESPN is on.
The public responds with their own protest in honor of Jamele to cease her suspension. Many questions surface as to why the President of the United States get to pick on whomever he wants on his twitter, using his freedom of speech yet when others follow suit, they are punished.
This image has gone viral on all social media outlets in her support.
