The ESPN announcement said it was Hill's second violation in a reference to a September incident when she called President Donald Trump a white supremacist in a tweet. Hill suggested NFL fans boycott vendors and advertisers associated with the Dallas Cowboys after franchise owner Jerry Jones told players they'd be benched if they demonstrated during the national anthem. The backlash of her tweets reached the White House, where press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Hill's comments were a fireable offense. "If you feel strongly about JJ's statement, boycott his advertiser", Hill tweeted on Sunday with a link to a tweet featuring several of the Cowboys' advertisers.

"Just so we're clear: I'm not advocating a National Football League boycott".

"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.

ESPN personality Jemele Hill is feeling her company's wrath after receiving a two-week suspension for a social media violation.

"Donald Trump is a white supremacist who has largely surrounded himself w/ other white supremacists", Hill tweeted.

Don't misunderstand, Hill being suspended is a good thing. "We have addressed this with Jemele and she recognizes her actions were inappropriate". Hill apologized to ESPN at the time for painting them in an "unfair light". "Hence this decision", the statement said.
