Took them a loooong time to decide to do something:
"Jemele Hill, the controversial ESPN anchor who called for fans to boycott the NFL after labeling President Trump a â€śwhite supremacistâ€ť on Twitter, has been suspended for two weeks by the network.
Hill violated the companyâ€™s social media guidelines a second time, according to ESPN, after she called on fans to take indirect action against the Dallas Cowboys after owner Jerry Jones told players they would be benched
if they didn't stand up during the national anthem."
Iâ€™m not going to defend Hill against her punishment. If she violated ESPNs policy, then she should probably be suspended, especially since she was reprimanded previously. But in this case, she didnâ€™t really call on fans to take action against the Cowboys. She told fans that if they wanted to make a statement, they should do it themselves by communicating their dissatisfaction with advertisers, rather than demanding that key players for the Cowboys take the risk on themselves by protesting and possibly being benched.
In the realm of offensive Tweets, this series doesnâ€™t even register, in my mind.
(insert pithy phrase here...)
