Hill Calls For Boycott After Players Told They Must Stand For National Anthem

Anti-police ESPN anchor Jemele Hill was suspended from ESPN for two weeks after she urged NFL fans to boycott advertisers of the Dallas Cowboys after owner Jerry Jones said he would bench players who didn’t stand for the national anthem.

“If you strongly reject what Jerry Jones said, the key is his advertisers. Don’t place the burden squarely on the players,” Hill wrote on Twitter.

In September, Hill called President Donald Trump a white supremacist on Twitter and ESPN didn’t announce any consequences for that tweet.

In July, Hill said that former San Francisco 49er Colin Kaepernick’s comparison of police to pre-Civil War slave patrols was “historically accurate.”

ESPN didn’t announce any consequences for that post, either.

However, attacking the NFL, which is a partner in business with ESPN, appeared to cross the line, according to Fox News.

“Jemele Hill has been suspended for two weeks for a second violation of our social media guidelines,” ESPN said in a statement. “She previously acknowledged letting her colleagues and company down with an impulsive tweet. In the aftermath, all employees were reminded of how individual tweets may reflect negatively on ESPN and that such actions would have consequences.”

Hill started her Twitter rant on Oct. 8 after owner Jones threatened to bench any players who knelt during the national anthem.

“No, I think the Cowboy fans – the paying customers – need to pick up this fight. Don’t look to Dez or Dak. YOU do it.”

“A more powerful statement is if you stop watching and buying their merchandize.”

Not everyone bought into Hill’s spin.

Jason Bell responded to Hill on Twitter saying, “the evidence out there doesn’t support NFL fans ‘liking’ their teams protesting. From ratings to other things.”

The next day, Hill appeared to back down from her previous tweets.

“Just so we’re clear: I’m not advocating a NFL boycott. But an unfair burden has been put on players in Dallas & Miami w/ anthem directives,” Hill tweeted Oct. 9.
