That was last month. Now, not even a month later, she’s managed to get herself in trouble again, this time earning herself a suspension.
As the New York Post reported,
ESPN suspended Jemele Hill on Monday, the network announced, for two weeks “for a second violation of our social media guidelines.”
The Worldwide Leader did not elaborate on her offending tweet, and Hill has not tweeted since 11 a.m. Eastern on Monday. However, on Sunday she appeared to suggest fans boycott Cowboys advertisers if they were upset Jerry Jones told his players they would stand for the national anthem or be benched.
“This play always work,” she wrote. “Change happens when advertisers are impacted. If you feel strongly about JJ’s statement, boycott his advertisers.”

On Monday, her last tweet read: “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.”
ESPN released the following statement regarding the suspension:

Shall we place bets on how long it is until she gets herself in trouble again? I’ll guess one month, max.
