  • ESPN Suspends Jemele Hill After Tweet Urging Boycott of NFL Advertisers

ESPN, nevertheless, has suspended Hill for two weeks, saying the tweets violated their social media policy.

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

"Just so we're clear: I'm not advocating a National Football League boycott", Hill tweeted. (However, in late September, Jones himself knelt with players during the National Anthem.) Hill suggested that instead of boycotting the NFL, they should boycott the Dallas Cowboys's advertisers.

Moving from Columbus Day to Indigenous Peoples Day
Among the communities to have officially gone to Indigenous Peoples Day as of previous year are East Lansing and Ann Arbor. Still, jurisdictions that want to change the holiday can face opposition. "We celebrate our Italian heritage".

"Jemele Hill has been suspended for two weeks for a second violation of our social media guidelines".

This comes after the "SportsCenter" host came under scrutiny last month after tweeting that President Trump was a "white supremacist" and "bigot". "If you feel strongly about JJ's statement, boycott his advertisers". Change happens when advertisers are impacted.

The Blackstone hotel also released a statement, saying the gunman specifically requested a "view room" that faced Grant Park. Danley said she was grateful but anxious that the unexpected trip home and the money "was a way of breaking up with me".

"In the aftermath, all employees were reminded of how individual tweets may reflect negatively on ESPN and that such actions would have consequences", the statement continued. She was not suspended for that tweet, though it did elicit a response from President Trump. Instead, she notes that fans that are upset by Jones' controversial comments can take action in responsible ways.

So ESPN suspends Jemele Hill.

She said in statement afterward that she regretted her words "painted ESPN in an unfair light".
