Jemele Hill has been suspended for two weeks by ESPN for violating the company's social media policy, the network announced in a tweet Monday afternoon.
It was not immediately clear what social media posts she was being punished for, but Hill went on a tweet-storm Sunday about Cowboys owner Jerry Jones having stated players on his team who protested the national anthem would not be allowed to play in games.
At one point, Hill suggested boycotting the Cowboys' advertisers, saying, "If you strongly reject what Jerry Jones said, the key is his advertisers. Don't place the burden squarely on the players."
Later, she said she was not advocating an NFL boycott.
Last month, Hill called President Donald Trump a "white supremacist who largely surrounded himself with other white supremacists," comments that turned into a huge controversy. Her tweet elicited a response from Trump, who said, "ESPN is paying a really big price for its politics," adding, "People are dumping it in RECORD numbers."
