Jemele Hill last month called Trump “a white supremacist” in a tweet and people believed she should be fired. Now the SportsCenter anchor was just suspended for two weeks following a violation of “social media guidelines” given by the company. According to The Washington Post, Hill allegedly suggested fans boycott Cowboys advertisers if they were mad at the fact the owner Jerry Jones told players they would have to stand for the national anthem or be benched.

ESPN in a tweet wrote about her suspension and mentioned she previously let her colleagues down and the company with impulsive tweets. The company believes these tweets have a negative reflection upon them and that is why they made the decision. There is no word on who or if someone will replace Hill while she is on suspension.
