Jemele Hill Suspended By ESPN Over Jerry Jones Tweets
Al Sharpton Furious Over Jemele Hill Suspension & Is Ready To Boycott (VIDEO)
The fallout from Jemele Hill being suspended will likely continue for a few days.
On Monday, ESPN released a statement saying they were suspending the ‘SC6′ co-host for two weeks after she sent out a few controversial tweets about Jerry Jones. This announcement comes just weeks after she escaped punishment for her tweets about President Donald Trump being a white supremacist, among other things.

Al Sharpton believes Hill being suspended for speaking her mind is completely ‘outrageous.’ He is ready to boycott ESPN over it, telling TMZ Sports, “We will not stand for her to be suspended.”
After Jerry Jones made it clear that any of his players who protest during the anthem would be benched, Hill took to Twitter and said, “If you strongly reject what Jerry Jones said, the key is his advertisers.”
